Golf Australia Express : Issue 24
MAIDENWINS are always memorable. And South Africa’s Jbe Kruger created himself a lifetime memory with a two-shot victory at the Avantha Masters in India, his first European Tour title. Coming into the event, the 25-year-old’s best performance was a third at the 2010 Africa Open. Understandably Kruger was quite chuffed with his achievement. “I’m very relieved to win for the first time,” Kruger said. “If you want to win you need to make putts on the final day and I did that today.” Holding a one-shot lead going into Sunday, Kruger made four birdies in the first 11 holes, extending his lead to three by the time he stood at the 17th tee. While he bogeyed that hole, he calmly shook off his first blemish in 46-holes by parring the final hole to sign for a 3-under 69. Kruger’s 14-under total at DLF Golf & Country Club was two better than Spain’s Jorge Campillo—whose 67 was the joint-best score of the day—and German Marcel Siem, who came home with a 70. Kruger’s win earned him his biggest paycheck, pocketing €300,000 and jumped to 4th in the Race to Dubai. OTG WHAT JUST HAPPENED ON THE EUROPEAN TOUR...
