Scrivener Targeting New Zealand Open Win

South African-born Jason Scrivener is looking for a strong performance at the New Zealand Open to help him add PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit winner to his already impressive resume.

Raised in Western Australia, Scrivener enjoyed a successful amateur career winning the Australian Boys’ Amateur in 2007 to put his name alongside those of Jason Day and Adam Scott.

After a hugely successful amateur career, Scrivener turned professional in late 2010, playing mostly on the PGA Tour of Australasia; in 2013 he managed to qualify for four different tours, being the Australasian, Canadian, OneAsia and European Challenge Tours.

Encouraged by former European Tour winner and club-mate at Mandurah Country Club Jarrod Moseley, to target a career in Europe, Scrivener twice progressed from the DP World Tour (formerly the European Tour) Qualifying School in both 2014 and 2015.

After his first professional victory, the NSW Open Championship in November 2017 Scrivener advanced to 183rd on the Official World Golf Ranking and finished 6th on the 2017/18 Australasia Order of Merit.

In 2019, Scrivener recorded seven top 10 finishes which saw him land the 32nd spot on the Race to Dubai and two years later he climbed to 111th in the world after a second-place finish at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and a T23 finish at the PGA Championship.

Recent form has seen Scrivener finish tie for second at the 2022 Australian PGA Championship behind British Open winner Cameron Smith, along with another top 10 at the recent DP World Tour event in Abu Dhabi.

Having last played at the New Zealand Open in 2019, Scrivener is excited to be returning to Queenstown saying will looking to earn valuable Order of Merit points.

“Queenstown is one of my absolute favourite places in the world so having to opportunity to spend a week there is definitely something that keeps bringing me back.”

“The New Zealand Open format is always fun and exciting. I also love it, when I can, play on the Aussie Tour with guys I grew up playing golf with”.

Currently, Scrivener sits 15th on the DP World Tour rankings and is hoping to bring that form through to Queenstown in a few weeks.

“I feel like my game is moving in the right direction at the moment. I feel really good about the work I’m putting in on and off the course.”

“Winning the New Zealand Open would be a huge honour and will also give me a chance at winning the PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit which has always been something I would like to achieve and add to my resume.”

“Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe winning the Order of Merit would give me a start in The Open which is huge!”
