HEN­DRIKUS STOOP East­ern Prov­ince Open, Hume­wood

SCORES: 74-71-67 (212)

RUN­NER-UP: Jade Bui­tendag 71-74-69 (214)

HOW HE DID IT: Seven birdies in a clos­ing 67 gave the 23-yearold from Cen­tu­rion his sec­ond vic­tory of the year, after trail­ing 36-hole leader Sieg Hu­man by four shots overnight. Stoop com­pleted a unique East­ern Cape dou­ble after win­ning the EP/Bor­der Stroke­play at PE Golf Club in Fe­bru­ary.

NO­TABLE: Hume­wood re­mains a test­ing cham­pi­onship links, proven in the open­ing round where a strong east­erly wind en­sured that only three play­ers broke par, with a scor­ing av­er­age of 79.5 for the 63-man field.
