Bobby v/d Spuy clutch Par Putt secures Victory over 3 co-leaders at Wingate!

The Thursday League Tour remained in the Pretoria moving from Irene Golf Club to Wingate Golf Club for the 8th Event of the Season on the 15th of August.

58 Players arrived to take on a 6425m Parklands layout which just wrapped up hosting an IGT Tour event leaving the Duckhook Tour players with the challenge of fast greens and tricky pin position to go with its tree lined fairways.

Frikkie Barnard went into the 8th Round leading 154 Players by returning to the Top of the Thursday League Standings after 7 Rounds on 242 I.S Points at an average of 34,57. Andre Kotze holding the 2 position only 4 points behind on 238 while Tiaan Bekker in 3rd spot for another month another 3 points behind on 235 points.

Throughout the event it was clear that the scoring was not easy leaving 4 players finishing in a tie for the lead on Even Par, 36 points at the completion of 18 holes.

Bobby van der Spuy (10) making his 8th career start separated himself from his co-leaders after carding 20 Individual Stableford Points on the back nine to take the Victory on a countback over Danie Geldenhuys, Francois Calitz and Andrew Smith. Bobby’s 1st nine effort saw him card 16 points to reach the halfway mark on +2. His second nine included a Birdie on the Par 4 – 12th for 4 points to go with a 3 point Par on the previous Par 4 – 11th to drag his score back to -1 with 6 holes to play. Bobby went on to make Pars on the Par 5 – 13th, Par 5 – 15th and Par 3 – 16th to lead the field with 2 holes to play but a Double Bogey 6 on the Stroke 1 dropped him back to Even Par needing to make a Final Par to secure the Countback. Setting himself up a 2 meter Par putt on the 18th Green Bobby calmly made the nervy putt to take the Victory and 550 Player Ranking Points!

Danie Geldenhuys (2) secure another Top 5 finish with his 36 points, a round of 74 which included; 3 Birdies coming on the Par 4 – 4th, Par 5 – 15th and Par 5 – 18th to go with 11 Par to add another 238,33 Ranking points to extend his lead at the Top of the Rankings on 3163,49 becoming the first person to pass the 3000 point mark.

Francois Calitz (11) also signed for an Even Par, 36 points with a solid round which included 10 Pars for his 83 while playing partner Andrew Smith also join the bunch on Even Par with Birdies on the Par 4 – 7th and Par 5 – 18th and 3 Pars which now takes Andrew to 2nd place on the Thursday League Standings on 270 I.S Points!
