Jason Scrivener’s win at the NSW Open has been a long time coming.

The 28-year-old Perth-based golfer claimed his first professional title when he took out the 2017 NSW Open 

A European journeyman, Scrivener was thrilled to get the monkey off his back with a six stroke win to claim the Kel Nagle trophy at Twin Creeks Golf & Country Club at Luddenham. 

“I obviously thought it was going to be harder than it was, but it still looked a lot easier than it was. It's hard work. It's hard to win. I knew that,” he said

"It's funny because I've been in this position a few times and you still get the same emotions.I just kept telling myself, 'if I keep doing it it's going to happen eventually' - thank God it's actually happened."

Scrivener ended up at -24 after a seven-under 65 in the final round after entering the day ahead by just one stroke to Victorian Lucas Herbert.

The 2015 NSW Open champion Ben Eccles was two strokes behind Herbert at -16 in third.

It was the first year at Twin Creeks after being played for the four previous years at Stonecutters Ridge in Colebee.
