By the Grace of…

Branden Grace pipped Ernie Els and Retief Goosen to win the Volvo Golf Champions European Tour at The Links at Fancourt today. Branden should have taken the tournament on the 72nd hole but nerves saw him pull a short 4 footer missing the put below the hole just like all of us pleb golfers would do.


The Southern Cape lad showed that he does have what it takes by coming back, keeping his nerve and making birdie on the first play off hole against two of South Africa’s greatest golfers. We all know Branden from the George Golf Club and this is another feather in the Southern Cape Cap along with Louis Oosthuizen.




Amazing Grace



The Links at Fancourt



Cricket: I am so glad that Graeme Smith not only came good, but also looked so good. I have been critisizing his tecnique for years now, and I am always extremely happy when he shuts me up. May this be the foundation for a brilliant tour to England later this year.
