Gavin Dear earns 2,889 Euros for third

place finish on Alps Tour

Englishman Jason Palmer finally caught his maiden win in Austria on Sunday. He won The Uniqa Financelife Open Presented by Kürier four strokes clear of fellow Englishman Daniel Coughlan.
Jason Palmer has been running after win for months. Englishman from Leicester was until now Alps Tour best player without a trophy in his luggages. As far as figures are concerned, Palmer's stats were almost perfect. His stroke average was 69.07 but even better he was the first “birdy maker” with almost 5 each round.

After months getting around a win, Jason Palmer shot the best score of the day, 65 to finally get the win he deserved. Since the beginning of the season, he finished 6 times at 7th place and better and twice runner up. This good result brings another satisfaction to England's player, he takes the lead of the Alps Tour order of merit.

At second place this week, another Englishman, Daniel Coughlan. Scot Gavin Dear (pictured above by Cal Carson Golf Agency). climbed on podium third step and confirmed 7th place at the Alps Tour ranking. Dear needs a good result next week too.

The Belgium Omnium is the first dead line for Alps Tour players. The top 6 (six) of the ranking will have exemption for first stage of the European Tour qualifying stage. Englishman Cryer, Spain's Balmaseda have to be careful of Scot's good form.

SCOTSWATCH. Gavin Dear achieved his third top-10 finish in 12 outings on the Alps Tour on Sunday. He finished third in the rain-shortened tournament with scores of 70 and 69 for 139, two shots behind runner-up Coughlan and seven behind winner Palmer.
Gavin earned 2,880 Euros for his performance and has total earnings this season on the Alps Tour amounting to 16,165.59, which has him in seventh place in the Order of Merit.
The Murrayshall man needs to improve just one place to skip the first stage of the European Tour qualifying school process.
