Win No 2 for Harding in Lombard Classic

- Mike Green

MBABANE: Justin Harding was still shaking as he greeted the jubilant caddies, and he felt his second career victory was sweeter than his first as he won the R850 000 Lombard Insurance Classic yesterday.

Harding carded a final round two-under-par 70 over the Royal Swazi Spa golf course to edge veteran Neil Cheetham by one stroke.

“It was hard work out there,” Harding confessed.

His birdie on the 17th gave him the lead for the final time.

Harding’s win lifted him into the top 30 on the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit, and adds to his first victory in the Vodacom Origins of Golf series at Oubaai in October. – Sapa
