Kruger enjoys top - 10 in Italy
June 13: Asian Tour member Jbe Kruger enjoyed a tied eighth finish at the BMW Italian Open on Sunday as he kept up his good form this year.
The slightly built South African finished the week on 16-under-par 272, five shots behind winner Robert Rock of England in the European Tour tournament.
The 24-year-old, currently fourth on the Asian Tour’s Order of Merit and currently entered for this week’s Queen’s Cup in Thailand, has already earned enough money to secure his playing rights in Europe for next season.
Kruger has three runner-up finishes on the Asian Tour and was third in the recent ICTSI Philippine Open. He will be amongst the contenders for this week’s Queen’s Cup which starts on Thursday.
