Teeing it up in only his sixth Alps Tour Event, Harry Casey burst to the turn in 32 strokes (4 under) on the final day of the Gösser Open earlier today having posted 69 and 70 (-5) in rounds one and two. Starting the third and final round four strokes back, Harry quickly over turned the deficit to take a share of the lead heading into the back nine.
Three solid par 4’s to start the back nine were followed by a dramatic eagle three when Harry chipped in to take control of the tournament. Fellow countryman Andrew Cooley and Dutchman Darius Van Driel were chasing Harry all the way but in the end the Alps Tour Rookie saved his best for the final hole. Two solid shots into the 18th green left Casey 35ft away which he dramatically holed, shooting 65 (-7) to take the title and with it his third professional victory since turning professional only last year and a healthy cheque for €5,800.
The victory moved Harry up to 6th place in the Alps Tour Order of Merit and leaves the Enfield based professional in confident mood heading into the busy summer schedule.
