GEARY MAKES LEAP UP CHALLENGE TOUR RANKINGS

9/09/2019

Josh Geary has recorded his second second-place finish this season at the Open de Bretagne in France to jump inside the top 15 in the Challenge Tour Rankings.

 

Geary carded rounds of 68, 67, 70, and 64 to finish at 11-under for the tournament, just two shots back of the champion.

This sees him leap up the Challenge Tour Rankings from 39th into 12th place, with the top 15 all earning status on the European Tour for 2020.

He’ll look to further cement his name inside the top 15 this week at the Open de Portugal.

Hanee Song has finished in a tie for sixth at the Trust Golf Thailand LPGA Masters over the weekend on the CLPGA. Song posted rounds of 72, 71, and 69 to finish at four-under for the tournament, eight shots back of the winner.

She was the best Kiwi in the field as Munchin Keh, Laura Hoskin, and Jenna Hunter all missing the cut.

On the China Tour, Kieran Muir continues to impress with another tie for 10th finish at the Hunan Taohuayuan Open.

Muir is having quite the year on the China Tour having already won and finished in a tie for second place. He’s carded rounds of 70, 69, 75, and 68 leaving him at six-under for the tournament, 10 shots back of the runaway winner.

Fraser Wilkin has also had a good week in the same event. He’s finished two shots back of Muir at four-under for the tournament after rounds of 71, 72, 72, and 69 leaving him in a tie for 14th position.

Rounding out the Kiwi contingent on the China Tour this week was Hayden Beard. He’s shot rounds of 74, 78, 76, and 70 to finish at 10-over par in a tie for 49th place.

Michael Hendry has finished in a tie for 32nd at the Fujisankei Classic on the Japan Tour.

Hendry has carded rounds of 73, 67, 72, and 73 leaving him at one-over for the event. He remains in 47th in the Japan Tour Order of Merit.

On the Asian Tour, Ben Campbell has made his return from injury to finish in a tie 35th place at the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship in Taiwan.

Campbell finished with rounds of 74, 68, 69, and 72 leaving him at five-under.

Finally, on the European Tour both Ryan Fox and Michael Campbell haven’t had the weeks they were after at the Porsche European Open in Germany.

Fox made the cut but shot rounds of 76, 71, 75, and 71 to leave him at five-over for the tournament in a tie for 60th. He sits in 55th spot in the Race to Dubai.

After earning his first start on Europe’s main tour in seven years, Campbell has missed the cut after firing rounds of 78 and 74 to finish at eight-over par. He finished in a tie for 123rd.
