ROWE AND BLOMSTRAND WIN NORTH OF THE BORDER
Abogey-free 67 saw Lyle Rowe come from six shots back in the final round to win the Golden Pilsener Zimbabwe Open at Royal Harare. It’s the second tour victory for the 29-year-old from Port Elizabeth (see Think Young, Play Hard on page 28), following his 2014 Zambia Sugar Open triumph. Rounds of 69-69-72-67 saw Rowe scoop the R285 300 winner’s cheque, two ahead of Dylan Frittelli, followed by Bryce Easton and Louis de Jager on 280. In only his fourth start on the Sunshine Tour, Sweden’s Christofer Blomstrand scored his rst win after closing with a sensational 10-under 63 at Lusaka GC in the Zambia Sugar Open. Making an eagle two at the par-4 eighth, nine birdies and one bogey, the 24-year-old rookie nished an hour before the nal group on 276 (73-71-69-63), eventually winning by three from C J du Plessis. James Kamte and J P Strydom were next on 280.
