DISAS­TER LURKS

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Sunshine Tour -

San Lameer must be one of the scari­est cour­ses for a pro to play on the Sun­shine Tour, what with all the wa­ter and bush lurk­ing at vir­tu­ally ev­ery hole. Cape Town-based Erik van Rooyen, who had an­other su­perb year on tour (14th on the Or­der of Merit), will not eas­ily for­get his last two holes at the KZN South Coast re­sort. He was two-over for the fi­nal round af­ter a birdie at 16, and look­ing at a top-10 fin­ish in the Vo­da­com Ori­gins event. How­ever, he signed for an 82 af­ter hav­ing an 8 at 17 and 9 at 18. Louis Oosthuizen was run­ner-up in the 2014 Al­fred Dun­hill Cham­pi­onship, but this year two of his tee shots at Leop­ard Creek found the wa­ter on the par-3 sev­enth, and he walked o with an 8, miss­ing the cut by two shots. It was his first missed cut in South Africa since 2010 – and that was also at Leop­ard Creek.
