From his bogey at the 17th hole of the second round, Scott Henry played a faultless weekend of golf at the D+D Real Slovakia Challenge this week up until a closing bogey on the 72, which sealed him a place in the top 5 and a jump of 119 places up the European Challenge Tour Order of Merit to 78th position as he aims for a lucrative top 15 place.
After a one over par opening round of 73, Scott was up against it if he wanted to make the weekend, let alone challenge for the title, languishing more than a handful of shots behind the first day leader. However a much improved two under par round of 70 on the second day which included a bogey on his 17th hole and a double bogey to start the day, meant Scott was moving in the right direction.
What was to follow was a magnificent diaply of golfing prowess and the culmination of a long season working hard on his game, Scott fired a third round total of 66, six under par catapaulting himself up the leaderboard and in with a real chance of claiming the silverwear on Sunday afternoon, not only would he need a repeat of this round but also some of the leaders to falter during their event.
He achieved the first part of what was required and for the second day in a row Scott shot one of the rounds of the day as seven birdies, one bogey and 10 pars took him to another six under par total and a total of 13 under par, good enough for a share of fourth place, just four shots adrift of the evetual winner.
THis result gives Scott a great boost as he heads into the 'business end' of the European Tour calendar fighting for his playing card for 2016, whether that be a Challenge Tour card or the opportunity to once again compete on the biggest stage in European Golf, the European Tour.
Congratulations to Scott from all of his sponsors including Champions of Golf, Luke Sport, Callaway Golf, Titleist, The Craig Group and Aberdeen Asset Management.
This week Scott is once again in European Challenge Tour action as he heads to the Fred Olsen Challenge de Espana.
