Levy suffers play-off woe
GOLF ALEXANDER Levy expressed pride despite failing to hold on to his European Open title after losing in a play-off against Jordan Smith.
Defending champion Levy, of Germany, finished 13-under in a windswept fourth round at Green Eagle Golf Courses in Hamburg.
Levy missed a chance to win the competition and it was Smith who held his nerve to roll in a birdie putt on the par-five 18.
Levy, who took home more than €222, 220 as runner-up, said: “I struggled a bit on the putting but I think I played really good golf. I improved my game week after week and that’s really positive.
“I’m really proud of what I did. I shot three under in conditions that were really tough and I played really well. I think there are a lot of good things coming for me in the next few months.”
