Kellett confident of pro career after Italian win
ROOKIE Ross Kellett scored his first win as a professional on Saturday when he won the Alps Tour event, the Montecchia Open in Italy.
Motherwell-based Kellett, 24, had scores of 63, 70 and 68 for a 12-under-par total of 201.
He won by two shots from Italian rookie Niccolo Quintarelli who had rounds of 66-70-67.
Kellett made all the running in the 54-hole event and had a two-stroke advantage going into the final round but said later he did not feel as though he was under pressure. “I know I can compete at this level and this proves it,” he said.
The first prize of 5,800 Euros boosted his winnings from 11 events to 16,107 Euros.
Kellett said: ““I have been playing solid for a while now but to put it all together in Italy was the key.
“I had only three bogeys over 54 holes all week which is always a plus. Winning my first event proves to me I can compete at pro level and no-one can take that away from me now.”
