Gressier Holds Onto Lead Going Into Final Round of the World Club Pro-Am2 min read

Posted on: 3rd Mar 2016

French PGA Professional Julien Gressier (Chateau de Raray) has managed to hold onto the top spot for three consecutive rounds at the PGA of South Africa World Club Pro-Am and will lead the field into the final round at Durban Country Club.

“I found the course challenging and the hot conditions also made for difficult play, but I am looking forward to returning to Durban Country Club for the final round. My plan is to stay focused and concentrate on my putting,” said Julien who has a one shot lead on a total of 150 points.

It was all smiles for German Christoph Günther (Project Golf Club) who carded another winning score for the round with a 38-point finish and two-under par for the second consecutive day. He now lies just one shot behind Gressier on a total of 149 points and has an eight-shot lead on title defender Henrik Engdahl who is tied 3rd with South African Ben Fouchee.

“It’s not a course that you can put the power on and force the score, so I will be patient and do the best that I can do,” said Günther.

Engdahl (Crete Golf Club, Greece) said he had a good round as this is one of his favourite courses to play in the world. He finished on 37 points, but added that there was still a lot of work to be done in the final round. Last year Engdahl carded his ‘career best score’ at Durban Country Club in the final round of the tournament.

South African, Ben Fouchee (Paarl Golf Club) tied 7th with Engdahl at the end of the last round and will go into the final round tied with him again in 3rd spot on 141 points.

Most of South Africa’s golf history has been enacted at Durban Country Club where great players have boasted some of their finest golfing moments. With 72 holes already played and the final 18 ahead, it will be the PGA Professionals’ turn to make their mark on the famed fairways and greens of one of KwaZulu-Natal’s oldest and most established courses.
