Danish delight on fabulous Firethorn

Danish delight on fabulous Firethorn

IT ALL came down to a classic “back nine on Sunday duel” and Denmark’s Joachim B Hansen fought brilliantly to come from behind to edge out young playing partner Wilco Nienaber and win the Joburg Open on Randpark’s outstanding Firethorn course.

Hansen posted a bogey-free, four-under-par 67 following earlier rounds of 66, 68 and 64 for a 19-under-par 265 aggregate. Nienaber closed with bogeys at 17 and 18, his only dropped shots of the day, on his way to a 70 and second place on 267, with Wilco’s fellow South African Shaun Norris shooting a superb 66 to claim third spot on 268 …

Joburg Open: Wonderboy Wilco: Big drives, big putts, big talent

JOBURG Open 54-hole leader Wilco Nienaber has led the long driving stats on the European Tour this year, regularly hitting booming tee-shots over 400 yards. In round two in the Joburg Open on Randpark’s Firethorn course on Friday he averaged a mammoth 416 yards with his “bombs”.

The Free State flier carded a four-under-par 67 Saturday and is on 16-under-par 197 for the tournament, just one ahead of Denmark’s Joachim B Hansen, who posted a day’s best seven-under 64 to be on 198 …

Birdies aplenty at fabulous Firethorn as Blaauw leads Joburg Open

Birdies aplenty at fabulous Firethorn as Blaauw leads Joburg Open

JACQUES Blaauw compiled a brilliant eight-under-par 63 on Firethorn in the second round of the Joburg Open to take the halfway lead on Friday on 13-under-par 129.

It was technically a provisional lead as a few players were unable to finish their rounds because of a weather delay but no-one was in a position to catch Blaauw.

The 34-year-old who plays out of the Els Club, Copperleaf, stormed home in just 31 shots on the back nine on a stormy day after play was suspended for a lengthy spell in mid-afternoon because of a thunderstorm …

Wilco and his fantastic 439-yard Joburg Open drive

Wilco and his fantastic 439-yard Joburg Open drive

CALL it simply ‘The 439 Drive’ and perhaps, in terms of great moments in South Africa sport, it will be remembered as gloriously outrageous as was ‘The 438 Game’ when South Africa’s cricketers scored a mammoth 438 runs to beat Australia’s daunting 434 total to win the 2006 ODI at the Wanderers to clinch the series for the home side.

On Thursday in the first round of golf’s Joburg Open at Randpark, Wilco Nienaber hit a monster – unbelievable actually – 439-yard drive on the 597-yard, par-5 fourth hole …

Michael out to hit hot ‘home run’ on Firethorn in Joburg Open

GRIP-it-and-rip Anthony Michael will be carrying Randpark’s hopes in this week’s Joburg Open, and knows that a win would be “life-changing” for him.

In his 11-year stint as a tournament professional Michael has played well enough to earn R5,3-million in prize-money with his best finish in a European Tour event co-sanctioned with the Sunshine Tour being third place in the 2016 Tshwane Open …

The Masters Then and Now

The Masters Then and Now

THE Joburg Open starts right here at Randpark next week but in the meantime it’s the Masters this week in America with seven South Africans in the line-up. And – on the subject of the annual Augusta National showpiece – it was 42 years ago that, coincidentally, a 42-year-old Gary Player wowed the golf world by winning his third Green Jacket following an absolutely storming finish to the Championship.
