England’s Steven Brown engraved his name on Asiago Open trophy and wins his second title this season three shots clear of France’s Clément Berardo and Italy’s Lorenzo Scotto.
Confirming a maiden win is always a piece of cake. When Brown won in France, he was not in the last group during last round so the pressure he had was the wait at the club house.

This week, the senario was different. He was the overnight leader and had to deal with his opponents. Unfortunatly for France’s Sébastien Gros, he was not sharp enough to threat his playing partner. But from behind, Scotto and Berardo was in good form. Brown shot under par and can even afford to drop one shot on the last hole, his leadership was not contest.

With this win, Brown jumped to the second place of the Alps Tour ranking.

Brown chases second title


Steven Brown, 27 year old, won his maiden title as pro end of June when he surprised the leaders overpassing them to win the Open International de la Mirabelle d’Or.

Brown is currently 6th at the Alps Tour ranking. This position offered him exemption for the first stage of the European Tour Qhalifying school but he needs to reach the top 5 to get the Challenge Tour category to play next season. A win in Italy could help him a lot to secure this license to play in the upper circuit.

He fired a flawless card of 63 and proved his recent success doesn’t disturb him anymore. He missed a cut in Spain after his victory and only finished tie for 40th last week.

France’s Sébastien Gros did not drop any shot as well and his 65 offered him a second place by his own. He will battle, mano a mano against Brown tomorrow to had a second title to his biography.
