News Team Henselite Aaron Teys makes it AO Singles Double for Team Henselite
July 2, 2015

Warilla greenkeeper, Aaron Teys recorded an historic victory when he took out the 2015 Australian Open Singles title at Broadbeach Bowls Club. Twenty-one year old Aaron became the second youngest man to lift the AO singles trophy after the biggest win of his career over international superstar and Canadian Commonwealth Games silver medallist, Ryan Bester.

Using Dreamline XGs throughtout the event, Aaron raced to an 11-6 lead in the final before his seasoned opponent came back to take the lead 13-12. But Aaron was undeterred and steadily strung together 8 shots on the next five ends. Despite a last minute fight back, Aaron was able to hold on to his lead and reach the 21 shots required to secure the trophy.

"I was always expecting Ryan to come back, he is a world-class player, so I knew I had to dig deep," he told Bowls Australia.

"My heart was beating through my chest at the end there."

"Hopefully this can be a stepping stone and if I keep doing what I'm doing, hopefully get in the national seletors eyes and everything falls into place.

Aaron's promise as an Australian Junior and now NSW Under 25 representative has long been evident and the young Warilla champion has been supported by Henselite since 2009. He joins Team Henselite's Ellen Ryan who won the Women's Singles the previous day, on the long list of Henselite Australian Open singles champions.
