Horsey pulls up a shot short in Lyoness Open

STYAL ace David Horsey agonisingly fell a shot short as South African Dylan Frittelli claimed his maiden European Tour title after producing a final-round 67 at the Lyoness Open powered by ORGANIC+.

Horsey, who matched the course record with a stunning 64 on Friday, posted the lowest round of the day once again – carding seven birdies and no bogeys in a flawless 65.

The 32-year-old opened his fourth round with four straight birdies before making another gain at the seventh to cover the front nine in 31 shots, and followed that with two more birdies on the back nine to stay in contention.

He reflected:  “I got off to a quick start which is what I needed, you can do that around this golf course, conditions were favourable, and then yeah I played pretty good for most of the day. I can’t really grumble at shooting 65 on a Sunday, you just have to question the first and the third rounds but I know my game is a work in progress still and it’s nice to see that I’m getting very close.

“I was just trying to focus on myself and give myself chances. When you come to any 18th hole on a Sunday afternoon, in my head I was thinking I need to make birdie to win, but I couldn’t quite polish it off.

“It’s great to see so many people out as well, in a place like Austria to support golf like they have, to support the tournament and make it the atmosphere it was it was really brilliant.”
