Voke ad­vances

Sunday News - - SPORT -

Golf: New Zealand am­a­teur No 1 Nick Voke is a step closer to a pro­fes­sional ca­reer, af­ter win­ning his first stage at the Web.com golf qual­i­fy­ing school in Ne­braska City with a fi­nal round of 65. Open­ing the event with an even-par 72, Voke flicked the switch to record scores of 65, 66 and 65 to fin­ish one-shot ahead of the field. The Web.com tour is a step be­low the PGA Tour, where the world’s lead­ing play­ers – Kiwi Danny Lee among them – play for mas­sive money. Kiwi pro­fes­sional Ben Camp­bell, run­ner-up in the 2017 New Zealand Open last week­end, fin­ished 45th in his qual­i­fy­ing event in Texas, to miss out on ad­vanc­ing.
