Project One Putt creator and Tour Pro Australian Brad Kennedy has claimed his 8th Tour victory by winning the 2020 New Zealand, held in Queenstown.
This is Brad's 2nd New Zealand Open title after winning the title in 2011 at Clearwater where he beat Craig Parry in a play-off. Brad clearly enjoys playing in New Zealand as he also won the 2016 New Zealand PGA Championship.
“I think I was chasing today which put me in a really good mindset to continue to attack and I felt like a couple of times in the last few weeks I’d started to play out of what I can do and what I trust where today I really just focussed on doing what I needed to do.”
“The course played unbelievable over the weekend, and not much breeze, I thought someone could easily shoot a really low one,” he said.
“Under pressure that’s hard, to get out there in the second last group and shoot that score under those conditions. I wasn’t aware of the scoring, because in the past that’s been a negative for me, just to look up and have those emotions affect you, whether you are in front or behind. “I really made a conscious effort today of head down, wait until it’s finished and then react.”
