The Duckhook Sunday League #Series2 tour took place at Dainfern Golf Estate on Sunday 26th of July.
The Red carpet welcomed 87 Players to the Gary Player and Phil Jacobs Par 72 Parklands layout for another exciting day of Competition. With perfect weather conditions and a course in great winter condition, the field gathered to catch up with each other and prepared to start the Tournament. Starting off the 1st and 10th Tees the aim was to accumulate as many Individual Stableford points as possible in the hope to take the Dainfern Title come the end of the day.
Reaching the end stages 3 players were in contention with one hole to play! Tiaan Schmulian constructed an unbelievable back nine carding 6 Birdies and a Birdie on the Par 4 – 7th hole to accumulate 23 points in 8 holes to reach -4 with only the 9th to play! Tiaan’s run came to an end on the 9th carding a Triple Bogey to finish on -2 to hold the clubhouse lead. Gerhard Snyman also fired on his closing front 9 to card 5 under of his 18 handicap which included 4 Pars and a Birdie on the Par 5 – 8th to make 23 points to go with his 17 points on his front 9 to eclipse Tiaan and set a new clubhouse lead on -4 (40 points). With most of the field already completed only Ewald van Wyk could have potentially passed Gerhard, having to make a closing Birdie on the Par 5 – 18th. After reaching the halfway mark on -4, Ewald started his back nine slowly with consecutive 1 point bogeys to fall back to -2. He clawed his way back to -3 with 3 points on the Par 5 – 12th and Par 4 -15 to reach the 18th. Unfortunately he would find the water relinquishing the chance to catch the leader.
At a loss for words, Gerhard came forward to collect his 2nd career win and Trophy beating 86 other players with his 40 point total and earns a spot in the upcoming Major, The Masters, to be played on the 4th of September at CCJ’s, Rocklands course.
With 5 Rounds complete Alan Louw now leads the #Series2 Tour on 141 points only 1 shot ahead of Jason Ivins on 140 points. June Leader Lukie Jansen drops to 3rd spot another point back on 139 leaving the League wide open with 4 rounds to play.
This Season now features 9 League Events with 8 of 9 Rounds counting to the overall League Standings!
The League format is Individual Stableford, the player with the most points at the end of the season will win a Weekend Away at Nkonyeni Golf Estate!
