Local golfers off pace

HARARE - Ryan Cairns is currently the pick of Zimbabwe’s golfers at the Golden Pilsener Zimbabwe Open after a bogey free third round saw him close on three-under-par 213.

The Harare-born professional golfer reeled in two birdies on his way to two-under-par 70, adding to his opening round 71 and second round 72.

The 2012 Vodacom Origins of Golf winner now goes into the final round of Zimbabwe’s premier golf event tied for 15th, 11 strokes behind leader Adilson da Silva of Brazil.

TC Charamba is Zimbabwe’s second best placed golfer. He is tied for 47 following his level-par 72 yesterday.

Charamba is currently two-over-par 218 for the tournament, having opened with cards of 74 and 72.

Also on two-over-par 218 is Zimbabwe’s Mark Williams.

Williams who turned pro in 2002 has been having a miserable campaign since getting off to a good start with a well worked opening round four-under-par 68.

Since then, Williams has recorded identical rounds of three-over-par 75.

His frustration was highlighted during the second round when he broke his club in anger.

Stuart Krog and Dale Howie are third and fourth in terms of Zimbabwe’s placement on the leaderboard.

But in reality they are second and last respectively on the leader board with scores of nine-over-par 225 and 11-over-par 227.

Only five Zimbabwe golf representatives made the cut out of the 33 locals that took to the greens at the beginning of the event.
