Thorbjørn Olesen takes the ISPS Handa Perth International title at Lake Karrinyup Country Club.
Thorbjørn put together a final -1 under par 71 which gave the Dane a tournament total of -17 under par, and a three shot victory, to lift the ISPS Handa Perth International title. he said it had been a tough day, missing putts;
“It was tough, they were not easy conditions today. it was a tough day but it was worth it, that walk down 18 was beautiful.”
“I missed a few short putts today in the middle of the round and I think that the lead got down to one shot, but I was just thinking about getting my round back to under par, keeping focused, and seeing if I could make a few birdies coming in.”
“I actually made a great two putt on six for bogey, which was very important, then the birdie on seven. My driving and a couple of three woods also were off-line.”
“It made it quite tricky for me but I holed some great putts coming in, really important putts and it was just a great feeling to see them rolling in the hole.”
“It’s been a couple of years since I won last time, so this gives me a lot of confidence and belief for the last bit of the season, this has been a great week and I’ve really enjoyed being here.”
In second place was Frenchman Victor Dubuisson, charging up the leaderboard with a -6 under par 66 last round, for a final total of -14 under par.
Englishman Mark Foster grabbed third place alone, a final -3 under par 69 giving him a -12 under par final score.
