Football player qualifies in South Africa

Former English soccer striker Roy Wegerle has won a place in this week's Alfred Dunhill championship after qualifying for the European Tour event.

The South African, who played his football for Chelsea, Queens Park Rangers, Blackburn Rovers, Coventry City and Luton Town, qualified with a four-under-par 68 at the Zwartkop Country Club.

Wegerle finished two strokes off the leading qualifying score of 66 shared by Ian Kennedy and Mark Wiltshire.

Wegerle is the second South African to try his luck on the Sunshine Tour after making his name in another sport.

Former Springbok rugby union fly-half Lance Sherrell has just come through his first year as a professional golfer, but without much success. Sherrell is ranked 209th in the current Order of Merit.
