Els Ready to Pounce at Leopard Creek
The European Tour will perform something of a continental shift this week as the players move from Asia to Africa for the dunhill championship at the Leopard Creek Golf Club, Mpumalanga, South Africa, where Europe's Number One, Ernie Els, will begin the defence of his European Tour Order of Merit title.
Els starts well as surprise packet McDonald leads the dunhill championship
Ernie Els began the defence of his European Tour Order of Merit title in considerable style in his native South Africa when a flawless five under par 67 gave the World Number Three second place after the first round of the dunhill championship, one shot adrift of the unheralded leader, Zimbabwean Bruce McDonald.
Gustafsson takes charge of the dunhill championship
Peter Gustafsson might be instantly recognisable for his blonde hair and his often garish choice of hats, but the Swede proved he was the head man on the golf course as well when he moved into the lead at the halfway stage of the dunhill championship at the Leopard Creek Golf Club in Mpumalanga.
Cheetham takes the lead in the dunhill championship
A month ago, Neil Cheetham produced a gutsy performance in the final round of the Qualifying School Finals at San Roque, a superb closing 69 hoisting him up amongst the 39 players who gained their cards for The 2005 European Tour. The 37 year old Englishman showed the same determination, allied to not a little skill, at the Leopard Creek Golf Club in South Africa to move into the lead in the dunhill championship.
Schwartzel triumphs in play-off to win the dunhill championship
Charl Schwartzel lived up to his reputation as one of the most exciting talents to come out of South Africa in recent years when, in front of his home supporters, the 20 year old beat England's Neil Cheetham at the first hole of a sudden-death play-off to win the dunhill championship at the Leopard Creek Golf Club to claim his maiden victory on The European Tour International Schedule.
