Aberdeen-born golfer Dylan Perry shoots final round 66 to rocket into top 20 of Casio World Open 2019 in Japan

Birdie blitz sets up big finish

AN incredible finish catapulted Aberdeen-born professional Dylan Perry into the top 20 of the Casio World Open 2019 in Japan at the weekend.

The 24-year-old, who claimed equal third at the Heiwa PGM Championship in Okinawa last month, produced an amazing birdie blitz at the Kochi Kuroshiro Country Club on Sunday.

After starting on the back nine - of the last day - in 43rd position, Perry shot seven consecutive birdies to rocket up the ladder and secure 18th place.

His round of six under par, 66, was one of the best of the prestigious tournament.

And, it allowed him to end the event at -11, after also firing 71, 71 and 69 earlier in proceedings.

Kyung-Tae Kim won the Casio World Open 2019.

The South Korean recorded 70, 68, 66 and 64 on his way to -20 - two strokes ahead of South African runner-up Shaun Norris.
