Australian golfer Peter Fowler jumped from 11th to second place on this year’s European Senior Tour Order of Merit with a win at the French Riviera Masters.
The win, a stunning come back from being four shots back at the beginning of the final round at Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort, was Fowler’s first European Senior Tour victory for two years.
The prize money of Ôé¼60,000 puts Fowler just behind current Order of Merit leader Paul Wesselingh, making him a realistic contender for the John Jacobs Trophy awarded at the MCB championship at Constance Belle Mare Plage in December.
Fowler previously won the John Jacobs Trophy two years ago with two victories and 11 top ten finishes, with only four events remaining in this year’s European Senior Tour he is on track to repeat that success in 2013.
