Van Vuuren Edges Ahead at World Club Pro-Am2 min read


Posted on: 2nd Mar 2017

The PGA of South Africa’s, Pierre van Vuuren, carded a 39 point (-3) round, to take a slender lead at the fourth World Club Pro-Am in South Africa.

Round 03 of the event supported by the PGA of South Africa moved to the Beachwood Country Club where van Vuuren started the day in second place, only two points behind overnight leader Julien Gressier (PGA of France). He got his round off to the perfect start, making birdie on the par-four first hole, following that up with another birdie on the second.

The South African reached the turn with 22 points (-4), before going on to make two birdies and three bogeys on the back nine and finish with 39 points, giving him the best round of the day. Van Vuuren has a three-round total of 116 points (-8), and a two-point lead going into Round 04.

In second place, is the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland Professional, Garry Houston, after he shot a one-under round (37 points), consisting of four birdies and three bogeys, leaving him on 114 points (-6) for the tournament.

Completing the top three is overnight leader, Gressier, who struggled to score as freely as he had been during the previous two rounds. He finished with 34 points for the day, giving him 113 points (-5) in total – still well within striking distance of the leader.

Team Serengeti lead the Team Pro-Am Competition, as they have since Round 01, and have a three-round score of 275 points (-59). Led by van Vuuren, amateurs John-Miles Griffiths, Izak Ludick and Hennie Lamprecht, have a six-point cushion and are in a strong position.

Behind them are Team Windsor Park, led by Nisharlan Sewshanker (PGA of South Africa), who have 269 points (-53), and a further two points behind, in third place, is Team Strand 2, led by PGA of South Africa professional, Morne Jurgens.

Round 04 at Durban Country Club is the penultimate round of the Individual Professional competition, whilst also being the final of the Team Pro-Am event.
