World Club Pro-Am Set For Grandstand Finish2 min read


Posted on: 3rd Mar 2017

The fourth World Club Pro-Am supported by the PGA of South Africa is finely poised going into Round 05, as Pierre van Vuuren (PGA of South Africa) and Garry Houston (PGA of Great Britain & Ireland) have a share of the lead.

Both professionals find themselves on 153 points (-9), after Round 04 of the event was played at Durban Country Club.

Houston started the day in second place, two points behind van Vuuren, and soon closed the gap, making birdie on the par-three 2nd. Further birdies followed on the 3rd and 8th for a front nine of 21 points (-3).

The Brit bogeyed the 10th, but recovered the shot on the par-four 14th to finish with a three-under round of 69 (39 points).

PGA of South Africa Professional, van Vuuren, also started his round with a birdie on the 2nd and reached the turn on even par (18 points).

Coming home, van Vuuren struggled to create any clear scoring opportunities, but closed his round with a birdie on the 18th for a 37 point round of 71 (-1).

Only two points adrift and hot on the heels of the leaders is 2016 World Club Pro-Am Champion, Julien Gressier of the PGA of France, with 151 points (-7).

The Frenchman led the tournament after the first two rounds, but struggled in Round 03 at the Beachwood Country Club. However, after a two-under round of 70 (38 points), he very much remains in contention to defend his title.

An honourable mention must go to PGA of Germany Professional, Christoph Günther, who carded a remarkable hole-in-one albatross on the par-four 18th.

Team Serengeti completed a wire-to-wire success to win the four-round Team Pro-Am Competition. The quartet consisting of van Vuuren, and amateurs John-Miles Griffiths, Izak Ludick and Hennie Lamprecht, finished with a total of 367 points (-79), after their final round of 92 points (-20).

Three points back were Team Windsor Park, led by Nisharlan Sewshanker (PGA of South Africa), who scored 95 points (-23) in their final round, to give them 364 points (-76) in total.

Completing the top three with 355 points, was Team Strand 2 led by PGA of South Africa Professional, Morne Jurgens.

Round 05 of the individual contest stays at Durban Country Club, as the field play for the 2017 World Club Pro-Am title.
