Werner Kapp of UniMedia Pro and PGA Professional is going into the final round today three points behind the leader Pieter Kruger from Pretoria. The event, which is presented by Cutter & Buck and played at Pinnacle Point has proven to be a great money spinner as well for the town Mossel Bay.
Werner Kapp struggled on the back nine going three shot over after just playing four holes, but was able to pull himself together by coming back with two birdies near the end of his round. Chatting to the players and getting a feel from them about investing equally as much in professional women’s golf has surprisingly been a concern for many of them too, but just do not have the time to do much about it as they themselves are struggling to make a living off the tournaments available to them in South Africa.
In the same spirit compliments to Global Golf who is presenting the Cutter & Buck Pro Am and the prize money of R300 000 for the tournament, which is the biggest prize fund on the PGA calendar in PGA Pro Am’s. Global Golf seem to have the right vision to explore all possibilities to grow the tournaments of the PGA of South Africa.
UniMedia Pro compliments Global Golf on their efforts and hope that it would be able to continue to be the attraction for corporate involvement that would result in raising prize monies and become additional revenue streams for both the golf courses and the cities hosting these events.
Other players in contention today are SP Nienaber, Greg Jacobs, Mike Michelle, Paul Marks, Jayde Tannous and Michael Scholz.
