Brink Drives Away with Lexus Open
Sweden’s Kalle Brink won the Lexus Open after two miraculous shots propelled him to a three stroke victory at Larvik Golf Club in Norway. The golfing gods were smiling on the 30 year old as early in his final round he holed from a bunker on the par five third for an eagle three and then on the 11th Brink hit a the perfect eight iron straight into the hole for an eagle two.
Sjöberg One Clear in Lexus Open
Swede Raimo Sjöberg produced a grandstand finish with three birdies in the last five holes at Larvik Golf Club in Norway to take a one shot lead into the final round of the Lexus Open. Sjöberg shot a one under par 71 to finish on ten under par 206, one clear of three home favourites in Norwegians Jan-Are Larsen, Lars Brovold and the amateur Tage Johansen along with Dane Peter Ankersoe.
Sjoberg Moves into the Lead in Norway
A second round of five under par 67 took Sweden’s Raimo Sjöberg to the head of the field at the halfway stage of the Lexus Open in Norway, one stroke clear of the Dane Peter Ankersoe and two ahead of home hope Lars Brovold.
Sparkling Debut for Barnes in Norway
Englishman Dean Barnes produced a sparkling debut performance on the European Challenge Tour, carding six under par 66 to move into a share of the lead at the Lexus Open in Norway. Inspired by the opportunity to ply his trade on a higher plain, Barnes, a late entry into the tournament at the Larvik Golf Club, seized his opportunity to join the Swedish duo of Jonathon Fransson and Claes Nilsson at the top of the leaderboard.
Hagen Hopes to Enjoy Home Comforts in Norway
The European Challenge Tour’s return to Norway for this week’s Lexus Open coincides with the arrival of summer time in Northern Europe, and Norwegian Morten Hagen is hoping that home advantage, and the benefit of some glorious Scandinavian summer weather can spark a reversal in his golfing fortunes.
