Danish golfer Steen Tinning secured his second victory of the season at the English Senior Open last weekend.
Legend Golf Course, Mauritius
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.

Following a flawless round of 69 giving him an aggregate of nine under par at Refrath, Germany, he was able to hold off German golfer and home favourite Bernhard Langer.
Tinning made his debut at the end of last year’s tour at the MCB Tour Championship held at Constance Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius.
After a career plagued by accidents and injuries in his youth, Tinning has put his current Ironman training to good use to raise his fitness and as a result was able to join the European Senior Tour last year.
Bernhard Langer is currently leading the European Senior Tour Order of Merit 2013 and looks well placed for a place at the MCB Tour Championship this December.
