Maiden Victory for Scott Arnold at Cordon Golf Open

  • Maiden Victory
    Maiden Victory Maiden Victory

After last week’s debut European Senior Tour win for Paul Broadhurst at the Prostate Cancer UK Scottish Senior Open, everyone here at Champions of Golf was upbeat going into another weekend of competition. Our optimism was well founded as Aussie Scott Arnold came from one shot behind over night on the final day to claim an impressive two stroke victory at the Cordon Golf Open in Pleneuf, northern France. His maiden victory on the Challenge Tour, and indeed, on European soil, saw Scott shoot up the rankings from 69th to 18th position and into contention for an automatic card on the European Tour next year. Starting his final round a shot down on Daan Huizing of The Netherlands, Scott produced a scintillating three under performance on the back nine to capitalise when the Dutchman dropped three shots in four holes. Two straight birdies on the 15th and 16th holes heaped further pressure on Huizing who was unable to reverse the slide. The win catapulted Scott, who is sponsored by Ping, up the Road To Oman leaderboard and he will now try to build on his momentum as the season come to its conclusion over the last five remaining competitions. With over €1.5 million in prize money still up for grabs and with only a small gap to bridge, there is all to play for for Arnold, who hopes to join his Champions of Golf stablemate, Scott Henry in the top 15. Having played on the European Tour as a qualifier in 2013, Scott is eager for another taste of Europe’s premier golf competition. Champions of Golf wish Scott and all of our professionals the very best of luck over the coming weeks. We’ll have another update next week so you can keep a check on their progress.
