FoxNews, Sep 15, 2012

Almaty, Kazakhstan – Scott Henry parred the second playoff hole Sunday to defeat HP Bacher and win the Kazakhstan Open on the European Challenge Tour.

Henry and Bacher parred the 18th at Zhailjau Golf Resort in the first playoff hole, although Bacher had seven feet for the win and missed. Henry converted a 4-footer for par and it was back to the 18th tee.

Bacher drove near a bunker and landed his approach in a back bunker. Henry's ball came to rest in a divot on the fairway, but he managed to hit his second to 25 feet.

Bacher blasted out to five feet and Henry lagged his birdie putt close. After Bacher missed his par putt, Henry tapped in and walked off with his first European Challenge Tour title.

Henry posted a 3-under 69 on Sunday to match Bacher at 19-under 269. Bacher fired an 8-under 64 to get into the clubhouse early.

Third-round leader Alexander Levy managed only an even-par 72 on Sunday and took third at 18-under par.

Andrew McArthur (66), Lasse Jensen (67) and Jack Senior (67) shared fourth at minus-17.
