Francois Calitz claims Victory at Houghton on -1!

The 9th Sunday League Event returned to the centre of Johannesburg to Houghton Golf Club on the 29th of September.

Firmly established as a regular season fixture on the Sunday League Tour, Houghton Golf Cub gives players the opportunity to test their short game skills on Greens known for its fast sloping greens which in the past has resulted in scores rarely passing the 39 point mark.

A strong field of eager players gathered early to prepare for the upcoming 18 hole challenge as well as catch up with others since the last event in August at Germiston while others enjoyed watching the Rugby World Cup Match against Wales and Australia with a beverage in hand.

After the 8th Sunday event Dhana Perumal continued to Top of the Standings on 283 points, 15 strokes ahead of Danie Geldenhuys who remains in 2nd position on 268 pts while Dean Sherman jumps from 7th to 3rd to 266 pts after his 42 points Victory in August!

The Tournament started at 11:30 on the 1st and 10th Tees with players aiming to score as many Individual Stableford points over the 6434m Parkland Course. Francois Calitz playing off his 10 handicap started on the Back Nine making a strong start with a 4 point Birdie on the short Par 4 – 11th to take the Live Scoring to -2 after 2 holes. He added another stroke to his lead with a 3 points Par on the Stroke 1 – 12th hole to move to -3. Consecutive Double Bogeys on the Par 3 – 14th and Par 5 – 15th competed erased his lead over the field to drop back to +1. He began clawing back with his 2nd Birdie on the Par 4 – 17th to return to Even Par, but another Double Bogey on the Par 4 – 18th saw him reach the halfway stage on +1.

Moving onto the Front Nine the Par 4 – 2nd also proved difficult carding another Double Bogey to drop to +2 letting the Tournament slip through his finger. A excellent Eagle on the Par 5 – 3rd earned him another 4 points to once again return to Even Par as he made a final run to return to the top of the Leaderboard. The following Par 4 – 4th yielded another 3 points then two holes later on the Par 4 – 6th 3 more points took him back to in contention to -2 with only 3 holes to play. Francois relinquished a final shot on the Par 4 – 8th to concluded his round on -1 (37 points) to ultimately be the only player to finish in the Red numbers to take the September Title!

Francois Victory earning him 550 Player Ranking points to leap from 16th to 5th on the Standings and an automatic entry to the Summer Cup will be hosted on Sunday the 8th of December at Glendower Golf Club as the 2019 Season comes to a Close!

After 9 Rounds Dhana Perumal narrows his lead at the Top of the Standings to 14 points over 2nd place to lead 198 Players taking his Total I.S Points to 312 at the average of 34,67. The 1st Player to pass the 300 points mark.
Danie Geldenhuys remains in 2nd place now on 298 pts, 14 points behind the Top Spot.
Dean Sherman holds onto the 3rd spot on 295 pts.
