eteran play­ers had a good run on the Sun­shine Tour in Au­gust, with vic­to­ries by Keith Horne (44), Vaughn Groe­newald (40) and Jean Hugo (39). Groe­newald (right) claimed his sec­ond vic­tory of the year in the Wild Coast Sun Chal­lenge, Horne tri­umphed at the Lost City Course in the Sun City Chal­lenge for his eighth tour suc­cess, and Hugo racked up his 16th tour vic­tory in theVo­da­com Ori­gins at San Lameer. That gives him the most wins among cur­rent ac­tive play­ers on the tour. Re­mark­ably, 10 of those wins for Hugo have come in the Vo­da­com Ori­gins se­ries, on nine dif­fer­ent cour­ses, dat­ing back to 2006. Nine of Hugo’s last 10 tour wins have been in this pop­u­lar pro-am se­ries. Groe­newald won just twice in his ca­reer be­fore turn­ing 40, both vic­to­ries com­ing in 2006, and has now dou­bled that num­ber.
