Day 32: Brandon Stone Rolls to Victory in the South Africa Open

Back to ‘work’ today… at Glendower Golf Club in the City of Ekurhuleni for the third round of the BMW South African Open Championship on the Sunshine Tour & European Tour… first played in 1903… previously won by Bobby Locke, Sid Brews, Gary Player, Harold Henning, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Trevor Immelman, Richard Sterne… England’s Daniel Brroks leading after 2 rounds, Branden Grace 2 strokes back… off to see the leaders tee off… who’s that young American kid leading in Maui??? LOL (-: Gonna be a good year in global golf… looking forward to the PGA Show in Orlando… anyone going? (-:   (Facebook Post 6 Pics, Andy Reistetter, 1/9/16)

Enjoyed my first day here at the South Africa Open at @Glendower Golf Club hosted by the City of Ekurhuleni… impacted by weather but looking forward to the conclusion tomorrow Sunday… great golf course, tournament well staged and run, and of course met some great people outside the ropes!   (Facebook Post 19 Pics, Andy Reistetter, 1/9/16)

Golf Journey to Ernie Els Country”… awesome to meet him at his Oubaai Golf Resort & Spa (means Old Bay, pronounced “Oh-Bye,” my read “Oh-Boy,” what a place!)… missed him at his Ernie Els Wines winery in Stellenbosch… good to see him again here at the South Africa Open at Glendower Golf Club in the City of Ekurhuleni (pronounced “e-koo-roo-le-ni)… does this mean I am a stalker or that the Big Easy represents the heart, soul, & inspiration of South Africa… which is that which I am seeking and finding…   (Facebook Post Ernie Els Video, Andy Reistetter, 1/9/16)

WOW, exciting finish to the South Africa Open… walked the back 9 with the leaders… congratulations to Brandon Stone, what a display of perseverance & talent… 6 birdies in last 11 holes to finish a 65 in Round 3… then bogeys 6 of 8 holes mid 4th round and finishes with 4 birdies on last 6 holes to win by 2 strokes! Reminded me of seeing Jordan Spieth win the Australian Open in Sydney last year… keep an eye out for Brandon Stone… might be the start of the Stone Age!   (-:   (Facebook Post 12 Pics, Andy Reistetter, 1/11/16)

Fantastic ‘Play It Like the Pro’s’ Monday After the South Africa Open golf day at Glendower Golf Club… WOW, what a golf course! More than I can handle, 6,914 meters from the tips, firm & fast conditions with uncut rough and Sunday hole locations… still managed to par half the holes and have a great time with Kyle, Boy, and Jason and our caddies Andreas, Killer, Clay & Lucky! Later joined by the great South African golfer Bobby Lincoln! Thanks 15 million rand Sandy! (-:   (Facebook Post 16 Pics, Andy Reistetter, 1/11/16)
