NOR­RIS TRI­UMPHS ON ASIAN TOUR

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Inside The Ropes -

Sun­shine Tour vet­eran Shaun Nor­ris, 33, of­ten plays his best golf in big tour­na­ments, and in ad­verse con­di­tions, and he proved that again by win­ning on the Asian Tour in Oc­to­ber. It’s his rookie year in Asia, and the Sil­ver Lakes res­i­dent (be­low) won the Yeangder TPC in Tai­wan with a 12un­der to­tal of 204 (three 68s). That was worth $90 000, which makes play­ing in Asia this year a good de­ci­sion on his part. “I al­ways joke with my fam­ily and friends that I play bet­ter in the worst con­di­tions,” said Nor­ris, who bat­tled swirling winds in a weather-short­ened event. His pre­vi­ous two wins, both on the Sun­shine Tour, came in the 2008 Africa Open at Fish River, and 2011 Nashua Mas­ters at the Wild Coast.
