Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Sunshine Tour -

Chris­ti­aan Bezuiden­hout banked R140 000 for just nine holes of golf when he won the Par 3 Chal­lenge at the Al­fred Dun­hill Cham­pi­onship.The en­tire field com­peted on Jo­hann Ru­pert’s new Par-3 lay­out, with greens repli­cat­ing fa­mous holes in America and Scot­land. Bezuiden­hout shot 23 and then won a play­off. He was up with the lead­ers through 36 holes of the main tour­na­ment, only to shoot 84 in the third round.Will win­ning this Par 3 event have the same jinx as the Mas­ters Par 3 con­test?
