Professional golfer Christiaan Basson (level par 72, pictured) ended in joint third place in the first round of the Vodacom Origins of Golf Series at Humewood Golf Club in Gqeberha at the weekend. The Metropolitan Golf Club member came in one stroke behind the overall winner, Darren Greene, who secured a playoff win over second-placed Tristen Strydom. In 2019-’20 the 39-year-old Basson, who was born in Strand, enjoyed his best finish on the Sunshine Tour order of merit since 2011, finishing inside the top-20, before the Covid-19 pandemic hit. He hasn’t quite been able to recapture the same consistency in the last two seasons, finishing 38th in 2020-’21 and was ranked 43rd in this year’s standings at the start of last week’s tournament. But Basson is determined to achieve success and get back into contention to try and claim his fifth Sunshine Tour title. “I’m positive about my game, it’s trending in the right direction, but I’m also keen to make one or two tournaments really count now,” he said.Photo: Tyrone Winfield/Sunshine Tour/Gallo Images
