Albert Venter sinks 16-foot birdie to win Zimbabwe Open in playoff

Sourced from News24

Albert Venter carded a superb final-round 66 and a playoff for the Zimbabwe Open at Royal Harare Golf Club, with the 26-year-old then sinking a 16-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole to claim his maiden Sunshine Tour title on Sunday.

Venter had to hold off Stefan Wears-Taylor, who also shot 66 in the final round, and Louis Albertse (67) in the playoff after the trio all finished the tournament on 10-under-par. 

They all parred the 18th in the first playoff hole, but on their next attempt, Venter spun a sand-wedge from the fairway back to 16 feet from the pin and then nailed the birdie putt with Albertse and Wears-Taylor unable to make their shorter putts. 

Venter's success with the putter was unexpected because the Silver Lakes golfer struggled with the short stick in the third round.

"I knew I needed to just keep grinding today, follow my processes, and my goal was to just get in contention

Maas Wins English Men's Open Amateur Stroke Play

Sourced Amateurgolf.com South Africa’s Christiaan Maas conquered a golf course he once thought was ‘impossible’ to win the Brabazon Trophy by five shots from Essex’s Arron Edwards-Hill. When the 18-year-old first clapped eyes on Saunton Golf Club and played a practice round in driving rain and howling wind, he thought he’d struggle to make an impact in his first major event on English soil. Fast forward four days and after racking up 25 birdies in 72 holes, the young golfer from Pretoria was crowned the English Men’s Open Amateur Stroke Play champion. The teenager started the day one shot ahead of Edwards-Hill and three clear of defending champion Sam Bairstow in his pursuit of the famous Brabazon Trophy. However, it soon became clear that the pressure of leading going into the final round was not going to weigh down the teenager. In fact, he seemed to thrive on it. In the end, Maas carded a final round 68 to go with previous scores of 65, 70 and 67 for a total of 270 (-14

Emotional Erwee's hard work pays off with maiden Test ton: 'It's a very special day'

Sourced from Sports24. Image from Getty Images Sarel Erwee carded his first Test century in just his third innings at the Hagley Oval on Friday as the Proteas batted themselves into a strong position on day one of the second Test against New Zealand. Erwee's 108 off 221 (14 x 4) helped South Africa to 238/3 at stumps as they look to level the two-match series, and while the 32-year-old put the team first in his initial assessment of the day, it was impossible to ignore how significant this moment was for a man who just two years ago never thought he would be in the position he is today. Erwee has played just under 100 first-class matches and has become a seasoned veteran on the domestic circuit where he has piled runs on for the Dolphins. Under the leadership of national head coach Mark Boucher, though, Erwee has been brought into that set-up where he has spent the last year carrying drinks for the Test team. With Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram the settled opening pair,
