Bentley makes the cut

HARARE - Zimbabwe's Greg Bentley has qualified for the Vodacom Origins of Golf presented by Samsung tournament at Wild Coast Sun Country Club that tees off today in KwaZulu Natal.

The Zimbabwean secured his place in the 72-man field when he shot a one-over 71 in yesterday’s pre-qualifier.

JG Claassen, Eddie Taylor and Theunis Spangenberg shared a first place finish on two-under to win at yesterday’s qualifying tournament.

After enduring a torrid time on the Sunshine Tour circuit this year, yesterday’s qualification was a welcome development for the Zimbabwean.

Bentley will be the only Zimbabwean at the tournament and he has been drawn together with South African duo of JG Claassen and Divan van den Heever. The trio will tee off at 10:30 this morning.

The Vodacom Origins of Golf presented by Samsung series comprises six tournaments that each carry a R600 000 prize fund with each event staged in a different province of South Africa.

Each event has a field size of 72 and there is tight competition to make it into these winter events.

The tournament runs for 54 holes, with a cut to the leading 40 and ties coming after the close of the second round.

There is a separate pro-am competition that runs simultaneously and for the first two rounds the Sunshine Tour professionals pair up with an amateur partner and compete against the other pairs using a Better Ball Stableford scoring system.

The par-70 course is the shortest on the Sunshine Tour’s rotation, but the coastal winds that pick up over the Indian Ocean make it a good test.
