Corren strikes Gold in Kalgoorlie
Andrew Dent reports

South Australia’s Mike Corren claimed the 19th professional title of his long career when he beat Queenslander Nathan Stevenson to claim the Golden Open squash tournament in Kalgoorlie on Monday.

The 35-year-old top seed had too much experience for his younger opponent, winning 11-7, 11-5, 11-2 to make it third time lucky on this year’s Australian squash tour.

Corren reached the final of the Top End Open and the City of Perth International in May but fell at the last hurdle both times.

But he was not to be denied against 21-year-old Stevenson, who was making his first appearance in a main tour final.

Stevenson had earlier caused a major shock when he downed top seeded Englishman Ben Ford in the semi-finals.

Ford won in Perth last weekend and was expected to take out the Golden Open as well, however he was outplayed by Stevenson, who won in four games 11-6, 11-8, 9-11, 11-9.

Corren’s win consolidated his position behind David Palmer (25) for most Professional Squash Association titles won, while by reaching his 32nd final he moved ahead of Stewart Boswell for most appearances in a final, and is again behind only Palmer (52).
