Corren Breaks Own Record as Oldest PSA Title Winner

Australian veteran Mike Corren shattered his own record for being the oldest ever PSA World Tour title winner after beating South Koreaís Ko Youngjo in the final of the City of Kalgoorlie & Boulder Golden Open, PSA M5 tournament at the age of 42 years and 99 days.

Correnís victory comes two years after his last triumph on the PSA World Tour, which was at the 2014 edition of the Golden Open, beating Jan Koukal in the final on that occasion.

This yearís final saw Corren storm through the early stages of the tournament, with straight games victories over Nathan Lindner, Tsz Kwan Lau and Rhys Dowling pitting the World No.246 up against Youngjo, who had produced a stunning come back from 2-0 down against Englandís Adam Murrills in the semi-final.

Corren, appearing in his 74th PSA World Tour final, came through a tense opening game on the tie-break, and gradually went up the gears as he powered to the win in three, with an 18-16, 11-3, 11-6 scoreline seeing him emerge victorious at the YMCA Squash Centre.

The victory also sees Corren extend his lead as the most successful active player on the PSA World Tour with 51 titles under his belt - 14 more than Egypt's three-time World Champion Ramy Ashour in second place.

[6] Mike Corren (AUS) bt [3] Ko Youngjo (KOR) 3-0: 18-16, 11-3, 11-6 (45m)
