Jamie Rutherford makes solid start to his 2022 European Challenge Tour season.

Jamie Rutherford has made a strong start to the 2022 Challenge Tour season by continuing to play the same level of golf that saw him win the 2021 PGA EuroPro Tour rankings. In 2021 Jamie played in 13 events on the EuroPro Tour, making 12 cuts, he had six top 10 finishes and won the season ending Tour Championship at Slaley Hall, in doing this his stroke average was an impressive 68.29. So far this year Jamie has played 5 Challenge Tour events in South Africa and has made 4 cuts, with two Top 10 finishes and again has an impressive stroke average of 69.11.

When we caught up with him for a game at Woburn in early February he emphasized how he was looking just to continue to try and do the same thing as 2021, you can catch up with his thoughts here :

The 2022 Challenge Tour started in March with 6 co-sanctioned events with the Sunshine Tour in South Africa, and now has a 5 week break before returning for the Challenge De Espana, this is the start of a run of 20 events in Europe, before 2 tournaments in China prior to the season ending Rolex Grand Final, where the top 20 players after that event will gain full playing privileges onto the 2023 DP World Tour.

On his return from a long trip to South Africa he commented “ I went to South Africa with reasonably high expectations, obviously you never know how your going to play at the start of the season, but I am very pleased with the start I’ve made, over the next few weeks I will get some rest I hopefully get some good constructive practise done prior to another long stretch of events, but having said that I can’t wait to get going again to see what happens ! “

Rohwer wins on Sunshine Tour

 

Martin Rohwer claimed his second Sunshine Tour title when he won the Vodacom Origins of Golf Final at the Gary Player Country Club on Sunday.

Rohwer led from start to finish and closed off with a 70 to win on 13 under par, two strokes clear of Tristen Strydom who came surging through the field with a final round of 64. Wilco Nienaber, Lucca Filippi and Germany’s Freddy Schott shared third place on eight under par.

The victory sees Rohwer join some of the biggest names in South African golf to have won on the Vodacom Origins of Golf Series, which celebrated its 100thtournament with this event. This is his first victory on the iconic series.

“Vodacom been a massive sponsor on the Sunshine Tour for so many years now, and to have a series of events like this every year since 2004 has been phenomenal for us as professionals,” said Rohwer.

With a four-shot lead going into the final round, Rohwer bogeyed the second and says he drew heavily on his strategy of focusing on every single shot to overcame that slip-up.

“My strategy helped even more today with the lead I had in terms of staying focused on each shot. “I bogeyed the second, but then to birdie the third was quite nice to settle me. It knew if I just played steady golf it would force the others to be aggressive. I definitely learnt a lot this week which I’ll take forward with me into the rest of the season. We’ve got a whole stretch of big events coming up now so to get off on the front like this is perfect.”

And a win on the legendary Gary Player Country Club is also a boost to his confidence.

“I’ve always loved the course and it’s one of the iconic courses in South Africa. I feel that if your game can hold up under pressure on the Gary Player Country Club course, then it can hold up anywhere.”
