Gressier Maintains Lead At World Club Pro-Am2 min read


Posted on: 28th Feb 2017

The 2016 World Club Pro-Am Champion, Julien Gressier, is another step closer to defending his title, after he scored 38 points (-2) at Cotswold Downs Golf Estate in South Africa. 

Round 02 of the fourth World Club Pro-Am supported by the PGA of South Africa, was once again played across both the Zimbali Country Club and Cotswold Downs Golf Estate, with players switching course from Round 01.

Gressier, who opened with 41 points (-5) at Zimbali Country Club, started Round 02 on the 10th at Cotswold Downs.

The Frenchman continued his great form and was quickly into his stride, making two birdies in the first four holes. Taking this momentum forward, he was able to close the front nine in similarly impressive fashion, birdieing the 17th and 18th, to reach the turn with 21 points (-3).

Coming home, Gressier made two birdies and three bogeys, to give him a two-round total of 79 points (-7) and a two-point lead going into Round 03.

His closest pursuer is PGA of South Africa Professional, Pierre van Vuuren, who carded a 37 point (-1) round consisting of two birdies and one bogey, for a two-round total of 77 points (-5).

There is a tie for third place between PGA of South Africa players, Graeme van der Nest and Nisharlan Sewshanker, who are both six points off the lead on 73 points (-1).

There is a share for the lead of the Team Pro-Am Competition, as overnight leaders Team Serengeti, led by van Vuuren, and Team Windsor Park, led by Sewshanker, both have 185 points (-41).

Playing at Cotswold Downs, Team Windsor Park shot the best round of the day with 96 points (-24), and along with Team Serengeti, have established a nine point cushion over third place Team Strand 2.

Round 03 of the five-round event moves to Beachwood Country Club, as the field continue to play for a share of the $100,000 prize fund.
