Jason Scrivener produced a strong weekend at the Made in Denmark tournament in Farso in Denmark’s northwest, the West Australian eventually finishing as the leading Australian but well back in 25th place.

Although ten shots from the winner, Bernd Wiesberger, Scrivener continues to build on his European Tour career having recorded four top ten finishes already this season and he now finds himself in 37th place on the Race to Dubai rankings.

His weekend rounds of 67 and 70 improved him from the cut line on Friday to 25th having birdied three of his last five holes of round two just to make the weekend.

Scrivener has yet to win on the European Tour, his only win in a recognised professional tournament on any tour coming when successful at the 2017 NSW Open Championship but he appears to be building strong platforms for himself and his first win in Europe might not be far away.

Wade Ormsby finished a shot behind Scrivener, while Nick Cullen was the only other Australian to make the cut when he finished 66th.

The winner, Wiesberger, recorded a roller coaster final day with an eagle, seven birdies, two bogeys and a triple-bogey for a round of 66 to win by one over Scotland’s Robert MacIntyre who finished runner-up for the second tournament in succession, having finished tied for the runner-up position at the recent British Masters.

Austria's Wiesberger was out for seven months last year due to a wrist injury but is now back in the winner's circle in his 13th event since making his comeback on the 2019 Race to Dubai, and for the first time since the 2017 Shenzhen International.

“I’m over the moon," said the winner. "It’s been an emotional couple of days, but it’s been great playing well over here and getting back into the winner’s circle after a couple of hard months. That’s behind me hopefully and I’m looking forward to what’s ahead."
