Scott Vincent, who is the first Zimbabwean to play on the Asian Tour, had to settle for fourth place after he lost to Ireland’s Paul Dunne at the first knockout hole at the Lake Karrinyup Country Club.


Fox, who received a bye into the last 16, had to make three trips to the knockout hole to first beat Thailand’s Jazz Janewattananond before claiming 1up triumphs over Norwegian Kristoffer Reitan and Ireland's Paul Dunne in the quarter finals and semi finals respectively.






The 32-year-old was 3Up against Otaegui in the final’s first three holes and his victory was confirmed when they both parred the fourth hole.


It was the case of so near yet so far again for Vincent. After defeating Australia’s Wade Ormsby 3&2 in their opening match, the Zimbabwean took down Yuta Ikeda when he won the match 2Up against the seeded Japanese.


Vincent had a crucial par putt on the second knockout hole to thank when he defeated New Zealand’s Ben Campbell to seal his passage into the semi-finals. However he was denied by Otaegui in the semi-final after the Spaniard won the match 3&2.


Panuphol, who took down England’s Ben Evans at the first knockout hole in his first match, fell to Norway’s Kristoffer Reitan in his second match after the European Tour rookie won their match 1Up.
