Levy suf­fers play-off woe

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

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.”
