2019 Thursday League – Glenvista Country Club

2019 Thursday League – Glenvista Country Club

October saw the Thursday League Tour move to the South of Johannesburg for the 10th Event of the Season at Glenvista Country Club on the 10th of October.

For the first time ever a Duckhook Event featured a Shot Gun Start with the entire field starting at 7am. Building up to the excitement of playing in a Tournament which would reveal a winner almost instantly with all the competitors on course.

With only 3 events left to play the race to become the 2019 Thursday League Champion hots up with players jostling for position to put themselves in contention to Win the Nkonyeni 8 man Golf Tour! There is also the matter of the 2020 Shootout where the Top 10 Finishing league players will automatically earn their place in the Thursday vs Sunday League Match play Challenge!

Frikkie Barnard went into October still Leading the Standings now on 312 at and average of 34.67 over 2nd place Andrew Smith only 3 points back on 309! Ruben Swart 2nd place finish in September sees him join Andre Kotze in 3rd position on 301 I.S Points.

Nestled between a valley giving an arena type of feel, the Parkland course supplies its fair amount of challenges with its five dams coming into play during a round and a perennial stream flowing through the 6740meter layout.

Wingate winner Bobby van der Spuy (9) could not have wished for a better start to his round making an Eagle on the Par 5 – 5th to take the scoring to -2 after the first hole. Two 3 point Pars came next first on the Par 4 – 6th then the Par 4 – 9th to move onto the 10th tee and the back nine on -4!

A slip in concentration on the tricky Par 4 – 10th resulted in dropping a shot back to -3 but quickly regained the shot with his only Birdie of the day on the following Par 5 – 11th to move up 2 shots to -5 and then adding another 3 points on the next Par 4 – 12th to post the tournament low of -6 pulling away from the chasing field of players. The conditions became more challenging and resulted in Bogeys and lost shots on the Par 4 – 16th and Par 5 – 17th to drop back to -4. Now back onto the front nine the Par 4 – 1st was a good hole to regain a shot to -5 but another Bogey on the Par 5 – 2nd dropped him back to -4 with 2 holes to play. With the pressure of a second win in 3 months Bobby stumbled at the final hurdle carding a Double Bogey to finish is round on -2 (38 points)

2018 Thursday League Champion Karl Jaacks playing off his 7 handicap constructed a solid round of golf to stay in contention at the conclusion of 18 holes. Starting on the Par 4 – 7th Karl moved to -2 with a 4 point Birdie to open the round. A Double Bogey on the Par 4 – 10th gave one shot back but secured two shots on the Par 5 – 11th to take his score to -3. Another shot came on the next Par 4 – 12th to be within touching distance of the leader Bobby on -4. Karl would reach the end of the back nine having only lost one shot with a Bogey on the Par 3 – 15th to move back onto the front nine on -3.

Karl started the front nine with dropping a shot on the Par 4 – 1st but quickly recovered with his third Birdie of the day on the Par 5 – 2nd to continue on -3. A Final Bogey on the Par 3 – 4th hole meant that a Tie at the top of the Live Scoring on -2 (38 points) between Bobby and Karl.

Karl ultimately was crowned the winner with making the most points on the Back Nine, accumulating 19 points over Bobby’s 18 points to take his first ever League Title and earn himself 450 Ranking points.

After 18 holes a new Thursday League has emerged as Andrew Smith takes the top spot with another good performance earning 37 points at Glenvista to go to 346 I.S Points leaping Frikkie Barnard by 7 shots now on 340 points.

Glenvista was the 3rd qualifying round out of 5 for the Final Major of the Season. The Duckhook Summer Cup qualifying will be over 5 months with an exciting new Qualifying criteria.
