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.

Erwee and Kim in the pink as Randpark’s 2020 Club Champions

Equity Trader Erwee Botha’s shares continue to go through the roof. But in this instance we’re not talking the JSE, you understand. Rather, it’s his fast growing stature as a golfer at Randpark.
The former Central Gauteng provincial golfer has won the men’s Club Championships for what is believed to be a record sixth time following a gross round of 73 at Firethorn on Sunday and a 71 at Bushwillow on Saturday. That gave him a level-par 36-hole 144 aggregate …
