A great field of 31 players turn up for the last major of the year, The President Cup at the beautiful and though provoking Sun City Golf Course.
The front 9 presented many challengers for the Major with the leaders at the half way mark of Michael Cragg, John Scafidi 21 points.
Michael Cragg was also playing his semi-final match play against John Morris and was putting on a clinic on the front 9. The back 9 didn’t get any better for Mr Morris as he got smashed 8 and 7.
Michael also ran away with the Major with another 21 on the back 9. His driving was superb, his irons were magnificent and his short game was on fire. Basically, his best game of golf ever.
Michael first with 42 points. Good to see Stafford back with 36 points and second place. And Solid Hammo with 3rd and 35 points on countback from Peter Plater the 3rd and Mark Davies.
Rob Mizen was untouchable with his NAGA, and that made John Morris feel a little better.
There was great interest in the putt off which has now reached $ 400, there was 3 or 4 players leaving it agonisingly short. The pot will continue to grow and carry over into next year should no one win it
