Cape Town – A final round 68 handed Neil Schietekat his second win of the season and his maiden Vodacom Origins of Golf title when he defeated Louis de Jager by one shot at Arabella Country Club on Sunday.

His first came at Sun City over two months ago and after a series of solid results in the tournaments preceding this week’s event in Kleinmond, he finally added a third trophy to his cabinet after signing for a total of 11-under-par 205.

“That one came from nowhere,” he admitted, “I didn’t know if I was actually playing good enough to win and then, obviously, the eagle on 13 and I saw I was a couple ahead. I kind of said to myself ‘don’t stuff it up, let them (chasing players) try to make the birdies.’ It was quite surprising but I will take it”

In a bogey-free final round, Schietekat made birdies on the second and ninth holes as he turned in 34 and then three pars followed from 10 through 12 before he made that eagle. “It was a perfect drive down the middle of the fairway,” he said about that eagle.

“I had about 245 and I hit rescue straight at it and it went just over the green but I putted it and it was about 15-20 foot, and it went in”

With De Jager and Jaco Ahlers, the overnight leaders who were ahead of him by two shots, playing solidly themselves, Schietekat admits he didn’t have any number in his mind coming into Sunday.

“I actually didn’t have any score in mind,” he revealed, “the whole week I kind of struggled with my game, just kind of kept it in play. We weren’t hitting a lot of drivers. We just kept hitting it on the fairway and the putter was very quiet.”

De Jager finished on 10-under-par while Jake Roos and Trevor Fisher shared the third spot on nine-under. Jacques Blaauw continued his good run with yet another top-10 finish as he and Ahlers took up the fifth position while veteran Jean Hugo, Peter Moolman and Zimbabwe’s Marc Cayeux shared the seventh position.

Peter Karmis, along with Brandon Stone who was making his first start of the season on the Sunshine Tour, make up the top-10.
