Burger Heckroodt, skitterende gholfspeler van Bloemfontein, het Donderdag op Schoemanpark se baan omtrent seker gemaak dat hy môre in die uitspeelronde sal meeding om sy spelerskaart vir die Sonskynreeks te verwerf.

Heckroodt het die beste ronde van die dag gespeel.

Hy het op pad na ’n uitstekende 65 houe – ook een van die beste rondes van die week – sewe voëltjies behaal en nie by een putjie ’n hou aan syfer afgestaan nie.

Sy skitterende telling het hom na die algehele vierde plek ná die derde ronde van die kwalifiserende toernooi vir die Sonskynreeks laat opskuif.

Die sestig voorste spelers ná vandag se vierde ronde sal môre op Bloemfontein se baan uitspeel om daardie dertig gesogte spelerskaarte.

Zander Lombard van die Woodhill-klub in Pretoria is steeds die voorloper met ’n telling van 204 – 14 beter as die baansyfer.

Hy is een hou voor Alessandro Grammatica van Italië en twee voor Michael Scholtz van die Ernie Els-stigting.

Lombard het gesê dit was moeilik om aan die gang te kom ná sy ronde van 64 die vorige dag.

“Ek kon nie werklik ontspan nie. Ek wil bitter graag die toernooi wen en in die Sonskynreeks speel.”

Lombard het die amateur-geledere in November 2014 vaarwel toegeroep en besluit om ’n beroepspeler te word. Hy het selfs al probeer om sy spelerskaart in die Europese Reeks te verwerf.

In sy amateurdae het Lombard die nommereen-plek op die Suid-Afrikaanse ranglys beklee.

Heckroodt het gesê sy gesin ondersteun hom baie en almal werk hard daaraan dat hy sy spelerskaart moet wen.

“My ouers en ander gesinslede staan my by en ek wil nie hê hulle moet hul geld mors nie,” skerts hy.

Hy is nou 25 jaar oud en as hy nie vanjaar sy spelerskaart kry nie, sal hy waarskynlik nie weer probeer nie.

“Dan moet ek maar klaar studeer en gaan werk,” het hy gesê.

Afgesien van Heckroodt het vier ander plaaslike spelers ’n goeie kans om vanaand die valbyl vry te spring en tussen die top-sestig te eindig.

Die viertal is: MJ Viljoen van die Bloemfontein-gholfklub is 33 ste met 213 houe, Chris Erasmus (Schoemanpark) en sy klubmaat Jacques de Villiers is in die 38 ste plek met 215 houe, terwyl die gewese Protea-krieketspeler Johan van der Wath (Bloemfontein) in die 50 ste plek is met sy telling van 216.

Bloems' Burmester leads after the opening round at Sun City

Bloemfontein’s Dean Burmester has charged into the lead on after the opening round of the Nedbank Affinity Cup being played at Sun City.

The Schoeman Park professional carded an opening round of seven under par 65 to lead the field by one shot.

The player told OFM Sport this morning that he is delighted with his opening round, which started on with a par at the opening hole on the 10th.

“I made a par on 10, then I birdied the par five 11th and that sort of got me underway. Then coming in on that nine I birdied the 16th, 17th and 18th.”

“At the turn things sort of went quite for me, but I stayed patient and I managed to bring in two birdies on 7 and 8,” Burmester said about his round.

The 25-year-old played with Warren Abery and Michiel Bothma, who have 11 Sunshine Tour wins between them and he believes it help playing alongside the seasoned campaigners.

“It really helps, just sort of rubbing off on the guys and learning mannerisms and little things like attitude towards bad shots.”

“Over the last five years being on the tour I’ve learnt a lot from all the guys. Fortunately I know Warren and Michiel very well and it was great fun out there.”

“They were very supportive and that also help. Obviously there is a bit of pressure, every tournament you tee it up there is pressure, but playing with senior guys takes it off,” Burmester said about playing with Abery and Bothma.

He added that patience will be the key to his second round in the Pilanesberg today.

“Patience…it’s really tough to go out after a good round and shoot another really low score, if you do…great, but the key is just not to get frustrated and stay patient out there. There are a lot of birdies on this course, so keep the mistakes off the card and take the chances where they are,” he said about today’s second round.

Chris Swanepoel, Trevor Fisher Jnr, Morne Buys, Shaun Norris and Oliver Bekker are all in tied second on six under par.
