Bentley hopes for change of luck

HARARE - Zimbabwe's Greg Bentley will be hoping for a change of luck when he plays Wild Coast Sun Country Club in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa today.

Bentley, who does not have a sunshine Tour exemption card, will have to play in the qualifying tournament of Vodacom Origins of Golf presented by Samsung that will tee off tomorrow.

The Zimbabwean has had a torrid season on the Sunshine Tour this year and is yet to make a cut in all the competitions he has competed in thus far.

Bentley has been draw together with South African golfers Morne Buys and JC Ritchie for this qualifying tournament. The trio is scheduled to tee off at 7:40am.

With a limited 10 places up for grabs at this qualifying tournament, Bentley needs to bring his A game to the fore to stand chance of earning a slot for tomorrow’s play.

Meanwhile, South African Trevor Fisher Jr, who won the tournament two years ago, is eying another victory at Wild Coast Sun Country Club.

“The course is playing good, but when the wind blows here it plays really tough. The weather is due to be pretty good this week, but even with no wind it gets a bit tricky,” Fisher told the Sunshine Tour website yesterday.

“You’ve got to hit some good shots and think a bit, and it’s such a good course that it’s always fun to come down here.”

The 35-year-old won the Investec Cup in March and has a further six top-12 results this season. The seasoned winner knew exactly where to get things going at this week’s 5807-metre track, where he’ll look to top the 72-man field.

“On two, three and four you have nice birdie chances, which can really get your round going. There are a few short par fours, but in the wind it gets tricky to keep the ball on the green. We’re prepared and ready to go,” he said.
