Andrew Oldcorn targets overdue win

2013 10 Oldcorn

Andrew Oldcorn is hoping that a superb run of recent form can steer him through a bout of fatigue and yield a first European Senior Tour title of the season at the Dutch Senior Open, which takes place at Amsterdam’s The International this week.


The Scot has experienced an incredible purple patch since the beginning of September, when a tied ninth place finish in the Travis Perkins plc Senior Masters kicked off a run of five consecutive top tens.

Last week’s tied fifth finish at the English Senior Open left Andrew Oldcorn fourth in the Order of Merit and €55,228 behind tournament winner Steen Tinning, but the 53-year-old is more focussed on just securing a top six finish in the rankings which would earn him a place in all of the Senior Majors in 2014.

“I have been playing very well and the one thing that’s missing is just being top of the pile at the end of the week,” he said. “I would like to think that with the confidence I've mustered over the last few weeks, that might be something I have to aim for but I'm struggling a bit this week so I just need to dig deep.

“To be honest I'm running on empty at the moment. I'm physically and mentally shattered. It’s the run we’ve had plus I wasn’t feeling very well last weekend with a minor ear infection."

Three-time European Tour winner Andrew Oldcorn added: “This week is so important for the Order of Merit now so there is a lot to play for. I think with Steen winning last week I would almost have to have a top five here and win in Mauritius (at December’s MCB Tour Championship) and also hope that those guys ahead of me don’t have a couple of high finishes and that’s very unlikely.

“I just want to try and finish as high as I can in the rankings and get that top six spot. I’ll try get through the first couple of days here and see where it leaves me come Sunday.”
