Cairns get his rhythm back

HARARE - Zimbabwean golfer Ryan Cairns closed with a final round of 71 to finish four under-par at the European Tour sanctioned Tswane Open in South Africa yesterday.

Cairns, who was the country’s sole representative at the tournament, had earlier shot rounds of 70, 69 and 74 as he tied for 39.

Former Ryder Cup player Ross Fisher won the Tshwane Open after seeing off a spirited challenge from Michael Hoey.

The Englishman went into the last round five shots ahead and carded a final round 70 to finish 20-under-par, three shots clear of Northern Ireland's Hoey, who tied for second place with South African Danie van Tonder.

Cairns, who started off his Sunshine Tour campaign this year by missing the cut at the Joburg Open and Africa Open was happy with his performance at 7 281 metres golf course.

“Thank you to my friends who came out and walked in the rain this week, that was very special!” Cairns posted on Facebook.

“Feels good to be on a European Tour leaderboard again after a few near misses of late (and 39th is better than 40th.. Silver lining:)”
