His equal best final round moves Scrivener to the brink of retaining his status for the 2019 European Tour season, the 29-year old now 111th on the Race to Dubai rankings, needing to be inside the top 110 by season’s end.
Scrivener finished as the leading Australian, one shot ahead of Wade Ormsby, with Lucas Herbert and Sam Brazel next best in a share of 28th while Adam Bland and Andrew Dodt were tied for 46th.
Scrivener, whose only title as a professional was when successful at last year’s NSW Open, has missed more cuts that he has made in the last few months but earned €24,300 for his efforts this week.
With only three or four regular season events which he can access remaining in the 2018 European Tour schedule, however, finishes such as this are important to him.
The winner of the event was China’s second highest ranked golfer Ashun Wu who won his 4th European Tour title with a birdie at the last for a final round of 67 to beat England’s Chris Wood by one shot and Belgium’s Thomas Detry and Japan’s Hideto Tanihara by two.
