Tshwane Open 2017

Round 4 - Dean Burmester claims first European Tour win

March 6, 2017

Dean Burmester finished with a 65 for a convincing three-shot victory at the Tshwane Open on Sunday, his maiden European Tour title.

The South African came from a shot off the lead overnight to win on 18-under-par 266 at Pretoria Country Club.

Mikko Korhonen (67) and Jorge Campillo (68) were tied for second as overnight co-leaders Alexander Bjork and Scott Jamieson fell off the pace.

Burmester made six birdies in his opening nine, starting with three on his first three holes, to go out in 29 and had a 6-shot lead over his challengers at one point. He made three more birdies but also three bogeys coming home but was still far enough ahead to win comfortably.

Burmester didn't have automatic rights to play on the European Tour this season but top-10 finishes in the South African Open and Abu Dhabi Championship in January gave him his chance at a first tour title in Pretoria. He shot 65s on both Saturday and Sunday in the South African capital to surge to victory.

Bjork was fifth behind Peter Uihlein after a level-par 71, while Jamieson tumbled out of the reckoning with a 7-over 78, a terrible finish for him that included four bogeys and three double-bogeys.

Round 3 - Alexander Bjork & Scott Jamieson retain lead

March 5, 2017

Alexander Bjork and Scott Jamieson will fight it out again as they retained a share of the lead heading toward the final round of the Tshwane Open on Saturday.

The second-round co-leaders were still top of the leaderboard after 54 holes, both moving to 13-under-par 200 at Pretoria Country Club in the South African capital.

Bjork, seeking a maiden European Tour title, opened a two-shot lead at one point but slipped up with bogeys at Nos. 13 and 15. He and Jamieson carded 68s and birdied their last hole to open a one-shot lead over Jorge Campillo and Dean Burmester, and break a four-way tie for the lead.

Campillo and Burmester put themselves in contention with 6-under 65s at the par-71 layout.

Round 2 - Alexander Bjork & Scott Jamieson share lead

March 4, 2017

Alexander Bjork kept a share of the lead and was joined on 10 under by Scott Jamieson on Friday after two rounds of the Tshwane Open.

They lead James Morrison by one stroke, with three players a shot further back in a tie for fourth.

Bjork (67) is playing in only his ninth European Tour tournament and is seeking a first victory. The Swede made six birdies at Pretoria Country Club to go into the weekend with a good chance of a maiden title.

Jamieson (65) kick-started his round with four birdies in five holes from Nos. 5-9.

Thomas Aiken had the round of the day, a 9-under 62 with 10 birdies, to move into the tie for fourth.

Round 1 - Trio top leaderboard

March 3, 2017

Gregory Havret, Haydn Porteous, and Alexander Bjork shared the lead after the first round of the European Tour's Tshwane Open in South Africa, all carding 6-under 65s at Pretoria Country Club on Thursday.

Fifteen players shot 67 or better at the par-71 course, a low-scoring opening round in the South African capital.

The leaders had a one-shot advantage over five players tied for fourth.

Havret made a blistering start with six birdies in his first nine holes before a more subdued back nine, where the Frenchman bogeyed Nos. 11 and 13.

South Africa's Porteous missed six cuts to start the season but found form in his last two events and continued that with a fine start in Pretoria.

Like Porteous, Sweden's Bjork went bogey-free for a share of the lead.
