Vorster wins 1st pro title, shares ERPM with with Van Velzen

Mar 9, 2022 | Featured

Martin Vorster has won his first professional title – but he had to share it with former GolfRSA national teammate Ryan van Velzen as the Big Easy IGT Challenge Tour’s Race to Q-School #6 at ERPM Golf Club had the final round cancelled because of rain.

The former South African amateur number one drew level with Van Velzen with a superb 10-under-par 62 in the second round, and he was looking forward to seeing if his great form would continue. But heavy rains made the course unplayable, and the duo had to pose for photos sharing the trophy.

“It’s a pity that we couldn’t get the job done,” said Vorster, “but I’m very pleased to have won my first pro title. I was looking forward to having a good battle with Ryan in the last round, because we have a long amateur history together. With him also having recently turned pro, it’s pretty cool to share it with him.”
