Coetzee holds on at Humewood

2008-09-19 00:00

PORT ELIZABETH — George Coetzee claimed his third career win when he won the Vodacom Origins of Golf Eastern Cape at a wet and windy Humewood Golf Club yesterday, writes Michael Vlismas.

A final round of 73 for a total of four under par was good enough to earn Coetzee the title and his second victory in five tournaments. Jean Hugo took second place on three under with a closing 72 in which he threw away a chance for a playoff with a three-putt for bogey on the last.

Chris Williams finished third on two under with a final round of 73.

“This was really nerve-wracking,” said Coetzee. “This was close to the worst weather I’ve played in, and there were a lot of players in contention. It’s nice to win when there are so many players fighting for it.”

Final scores:

212 - George Coetzee 71 68 73

213 - Jean Hugo 71 70 72

214 - Chris Williams 70 71 73

215 - Christiaan Basson 73 70 72

216 - Juan Langeveld 69 77 70, Neil Schietekat 68 77 71
