Lo­cals for AfraAsia tour­ney

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Takudzwa Chit­siga Sports Re­porter

SCOTT Vin­cent will re­turn to the Sun­shine Tour cir­cuit when he tees off in the AfraAsia Bank Mau­ri­tius Open at the Her­itage Golf Club on Novem­ber 30.

The Asian and Sun­shine Tour card­holder will be among 125 play­ers who got in­vites for the event which is also un­der the Euro­pean Tour.

Vin­cent, who has been qui­etly try­ing his lucky in Asia and Canada, will be joined by Mark Wil­liams and Marc Cayeux in the $1 mil­lion purse tour­na­ment.

The for­mer Chap­man and Royal Harare mem­ber will go into the tour­na­ment as one of the favourites.

Cayeux will join the field on med­i­cal grounds and will take last week’s cut as a mo­ti­va­tor as he bat­tles some of the world’s best play­ers.

Ryan Cairns, Greg Bent­ley, Mo­ham­mad Mandhu and Nyasha Muyambo will also try to make the fi­nal field by tak­ing part in the pre-qual­i­fy­ing round.

Cayeux made the cut in a pro­fes­sional tour­na­ment for the first time in seven years at the Vo­da­com Ori­gins of Golf Fi­nal at Si­mola Golf and Coun­try Es­tate last week.

Cayeux was se­verely in­jured in a road ac­ci­dent in Zim­babwe in 2010, and, af­ter 27 surg­eries, it seemed a promis­ing ca­reer had been cut short.

But, bat­tling his way through pain and frus­trat­ing set­backs, he re-joined the Sun­shine Tour in 2017, and, al­most in­evitably, missed the cut five times in five tour­na­ments.
