Torrential rain on the first day of play and over night on the second at the International in Amsterdam led to the tournament being halted, granting the English-born Brown victory after only two days play.
This is Brown’s first season in the European Senior Tour. The victory puts him fourth in the Order of Merit which could secure him a place in the top six at the end of the Tour, earning him an exemption to all the Senior Majors of 2014.
With just one event to go before the MCB Championship, held in Mauritius at Constance Belle Mare Plage in December, Steen Tinning still has his eye on the Jacobs Trophy, leading the Order of Merit by just under €10,000 ahead of the nearest contender Paul Wesselingh.
Danish golfer Steen Tinning secured his second victory of the season at the English Senior Open last weekend.

The win takes him to the top of the Order of Merit with only three events remaining making him a serious contender for first place at the MCB Championship held at Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius in December.
This is Tinning’s first season in the European Tour but being a rookie didn’t stop him fending off Santiago Luna of Spain for a one stroke victory at Rockliffe Hall.
Tinning claimed his Iron Man training gave him an edge helping him to stay focused and finish at 17 under par in front of a crowd of more than 2,000 spectators.

Tatler magazine has described Constance Le Prince Maurice as a ‘little piece of paradise’ in its Spa Guide 2014.
Spa de Constance, Le Prince Maurice
The Tatler Spa Guide is an annual rundown of the very best spas from around the world. Featured in the November issue (out now), the Spa Guide 2014 includes the spa at Le Prince Maurice under the banner ‘Hedonist, Pure Indulgence’.
The review states:
‘The spa merges magically with the outdoors, so you don’t feel you’re “wasting” precious sunshine time. A little plunge pool, for instance, is surrounded by cushioned loungers perfect for lolling on post-treatment, while only a rattan blind comes between you and the outside world in the bright and breezy garden treatment rooms.’
The review goes on to praise the Sisley Spa and its signature treatments, Brice Nicham’s ‘soporific medical pedicures’ and yoga and pilates sessions with ‘French goddess and ex-gymnast’ Isabelle Lamant.
