Tom Gandy experienced a baptism of fire as he teed it up with the big boys in the South African open this weekend. Tom missed the cut but learned some valuable experience points.
Meanwhile, Branden Grace fired a nine-under 62 to win the South African Open.
It was Grace’s ninth European Tour win, but his first since November 2017.
He finished on 21 under, three clear of overnight leader and fellow South African Louis Oosthuizen, whose last-round 68, included a hole-in-one.
Grace also claimed one of the three qualifying spots available to non-exempt players for The Open at Royal St George’s in July, along with England’s Marcus Armitage, who finished third, and Jaco Ahlers of South Africa.
