Scrivener, who was unable to retain his full European Tour privileges after his rookie season last year, managed to regain his card through the Tour School last November but in his last thirteen European Tour starts he has made 11 cuts including a 3rd place finish at the Hong Kong Open.
Scrivener has been bogey free in his opening two rounds this week, a considerable improvement on his missed cut in the same event last year.
The 26 year old was actually born in South Africa and until the age of ten played his early golf in Zimbabwe before his family moved to Perth.
Amongst Australia’s leading amateurs before turning professional in late 2010, Scrivener appears to be the sort of player who is making solid if unspectacular progress and the manner in which he is playing of late suggests it might not be too long before he contends for his maiden win on the European Tour.
Scrivener trails England’s Ross McGowan by six shots but is only three shots out of second position.
New South Wales' Dimi Papadatos improved sharply in round two his 67 moving him into a share of 31st position in an event in which he gained a start courtesy of hs near miss at the European Tour School
