40 points earns Barry Venter 1st Duckhook League Title at Reading!

The 2019 Sunday League approached the midway point with the 6th League event in June at Reading Country Club on the 23rd of June.

After the 5th Round at Wingate in May, Dhana Perumal dethroned Dylan Stafford moving to the number 1 spot on 172 I.S points. Dylan dropped down to 2nd place 5 points behind on 167 while Karl Jaacks remained in 3rd place on 165 and with Reading closing the chapter on the first half the Season many players were determined to make a strong showing to move into the 2nd half of the season with good momentum.

With the tour moving to the south of Johannesburg, Reading Country Club greeted the players with chilly conditions as the main challenge while the quick greens added another test to go with its tree-lined fairways.

Duckhook Veteran Barry Venter started the field off on the 1st Tee playing from his 14 handicap. Starting his tournament with a Double Bogey on +2 he began clawing his way back into contention by carding 3 point Pars on the Par 4 – 2nd and Par 4 – 3rd to erase his deficit. A Bogey on the Par 5 – 6th was quickly cancelled out with another 3 point Par on the Par 3 – 5th while his 2nd Double Bogey of the front nine dropped him back to +1 with three holes to go. Barry would finish his front nine on a high making his only Birdie of his round on the difficult Par 4 – 9th to earn 19 point to move under par for the 1st time to -1.

Moving onto the back nine to face the stroke 1, 10th hole Barry dropped another shot back to Even Par after making his final Double Bogey of his round. He finally found consistence in his game on the Par 5 – 12th to put four consecutive Pars together gaining shots on the Par 4 – 13th and Par 4 – 14th to move his score to -2 and in contention for the Title with 4 holes to play. Reaching the Par 4 – 17th still on -2 Barry made a last push by carding another 3 points to take his score to -3! He was not done… there was still one more 3 point Par to come on the long Par 4 – 18th to secure a club house lead on -4, 40 points.

With a long wait for the rest of the field to return only two other players threaten his lead. Leon van Aarde (22) negotiated the Reading layout with a consistent run of 2 point Bogeys on the front nine to card a -1, 19 points.  Leon continued his run for the lead moving to -2 on the Par 4 – 10th and then -3 after making Par on the Par 5 – 12th. Double Stroking the Par 4 – 13th meant that another 3 points took him to a co-lead on -4 and into contention with 5 holes to go! Two unfortunate Double Bogeys on the Par 4 – 16th and 17th dented his chances giving back two shot to -2 now needing a Birdie on the 18th to take the Title on a count back. Leon closed his round with a final 3 point Par to sign for a -3, 39 points, another great effort this season.

Special mention to Dylan de Beer finishing in tie for 4th on -1, 37 points. The lowest handicapped player in the field playing off +2, Dylan had a round to remember carding four Birdies and four Pars to shoot an exception 32 on the back nine! Two more Birdies and six Pars on the front to go with a Bogey and a Double Bogey saw Dylan shoot -1, 70!

With all the players back in the club house and no one else finishing on 40 point it was official, Barry Venter was the June winner and his first League win under the belt to go with 550 Ranking points and an automatic entry to the Duckhook Open at the Ebotse Links!

After 6 Rounds on the Sunday League Tour Dhana Perumal continues to lead the Tour now on 209 I.S points and the first player to pass the 200 point mark! Peter Zachariou jumps from 6th to 2nd to 199 pts, 10 behind the Top while Karl Jaacks keeps the 3rd spot his own on 196 pts.
