Thorbjørn Triumphs Down Under

Monday, October 27, 2014

Thorbjørn Olesen romped to his second European Tour title at the ISPS HANDA Perth International as a closing 71 gave the Dane a three shot victory over Victor Dubuisson at Lake Karrinyup.

The 24 year old, whose previous win came in Sicily two years ago, started the day three clear but saw that advantage reduced to one after a jittery start to the back nine. With Dubuisson setting the clubhouse mark at 14 under par, Olesen responded with birdies at the 13th and 15th to restore his advantage and claim the €198,300 prize with a 17 under par total.

“It was tough – they were not easy conditions today,” said Olesen.

“It was a tough day but it was worth it – that walk down 18 was beautiful.”

“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.”

Congrats T.O. we are all delighted for you.
