Be­fore leav­ing for home, Harper posted a mes­sage on In­sta­gram say­ing: “Been a tough month out here – not the re­sults I was hop­ing for so back home.....to the prac­tice ground!” Harper had fared bet­ter in the Red Sea Open at Ain Sokhna in Suez, last week, fin­ish­ing 17th with a three-round to­tal of 212 – four un­der for the tour­na­ment.
