  • SHARE
August 01: Berry Henson of the United States seized his first win of the season when he shot a final round two-under-par 70 to claim a three-shot victory at the US$165,000 Long Beach Open last week.
The 34-year-old, who made his breakthrough on the Asian Tour when he won the ICTSI Philippine Open in 2011, started off strongly by firing three birdies in his first six holes to take the outright lead.
The American then cruised home convincingly to take home the winner’s prize purse of US$30,000 courtesy of his winning total of 19-under-par 269 at the El Dorado Park Golf Course.
Henson is currently ranked 13th on the Asian Tour Order or Merit with his season haul of $95,877.
Ends.
