Jason Scrivener’s affinity for the Albatross Golf Resort in Prague has continued with the West Australian the best of the Aussies at the European Tour’s D+D Real Czech Masters.

Jason ScrivenerBelgian Thomas Pieters registered his second win in the event and the fourth European Tour title of his career to end a three-year title drought while Scrivener also added to positive history in the Czech Republic.

Fifth in 2017 and tied for 18th 12 months ago, Scrivener made a bright start to the 2019 tournament with six birdies in an opening round of 5-under 67.

A top-20 finish was well within reach as he began the final round but three bogeys and two birdies in hs opening five holes set an up-and-down tone that remained for the majority of the round.

Birdies at 12 and 17 were offset by bogeys at the 14th an 17th holes as he signed for a final round of even-par 72 and a tie for 30th.

New South Welshman Dimi Papadatos made positive progress on the final day, his 2-under 70 delivering an 11-spot rise on the leaderboard to be tied for 39th with four sub-par rounds, his best finish on the European Tour since a tie for 15th at the British Masters in May.
