Young pro celebrates win at Sishen

Club Sport

The Vodacom Origins of Golf Tourna-ment was held at Sishen from 12 - 14 October with a full field of 119 players.
Hennie Du Plessis, on his 21st birthday, managed to win his first Sunshine Tour title at Sishen on the fourth play-off hole.
Du Plessis lead the field from the start, but the last day saw the golfers play in difficult windy conditions where mistakes could cost them the tournament.
Ockie Strydom played some great golf putting great pressure on Du Plessis and fi-nishing his round with a 5 under par 67.
Facing Du Plessis on the play-off, Strydom matched him shot for shot until Du Plessis holed a 50-foot putt for a birdie to claim his win.
When asked about his winning putt, he claimed he thought that he had hit it too hard, but having played from that position previously, he knew the line and claimed it was an awesome relief that the ball went in.
Congratulations Hennie!
