EPD Tour — Royal County Down's Reeve Whitson clinched the best finish of his fledgling professional career when he tied for 12th in the Open Casa Green Golf in Morocco.
The 24-year old former Spanish Amateur Open winner closed with a four under 68 to finish on four under par at Casa Green Golf Club in Casablanca, eight strokes behind Johan Lopez Lazaro of France.
Lopez Lazaro shot a final round 70 to win the €5,000 top prize by one stroke from compatriot Alexandre Kaleka (67) and Belgium's Christopher Mivis (66) while Whitson got €554 and moved up to 38th in the Order of Merit with €1724 from six starts.
Headfort's Rory McNamara, who won his maiden title in Casablanca last week, remained third in the Order of Merit after he shot 74 to finish 41st behind Lopez Lazaro on one over.
The next EPD event is the Open Madaef at El Jadida in Morocco from April 4.
