Swiss near-miss for Ormsby, Herbert

Posted by on   /   Posted in golf news

Lucas Herbert sets up a putt during his last round attack in Switzerland.

It came too little in terms of a trophy, but two Aussies gave a bold show during the European Tour in Switzerland & # 39;

South Australian Wade Ormsby and Victorian Lucas Herbert shared eighth after a roller coaster final round of the Omega European Masters in Crans Montana, just two shots of the final winning pace.

Ormsby, a threat throughout the event, had led much of the final round to a double bogey on the par-five 15th to undo him.

Herbert, conversely, was spotless without a fanfare early in his round, and then caught fire late with an eagle on the 14th, followed by two more birdies to temporarily pull one of the leads at 12 below next to Ormsby.

In a hectic closing time, seven men jumped by before Sebastian Soderberg, from Sweden, prevailed in a five-man playoff with a rare bird on the heavy 18th hole.

Meanwhile, Cam Davis and Brett Coletta's PGA Tour expectations are tied to a thread during the Korn Ferry Tour Championship.

The pair needs a high finish tomorrow to have a chance to win next season and gave themselves hope with a few 69 & # 39; s in today's third round.

But they will probably have to shoot somewhere in the mid-60s to reduce the chance of approaching Tom Lewis (-16) and company.

Curtis Luck, who missed the cut the day before, dropped to 27th in the final ranking after plotting the results today, but he also has a mathematical chance to win back his card tomorrow, depending on the results around him.
