Meanwhile, on the Challenge Tour, young Danish prospect Oliver Hundebøll (22) won in South Africa. Hundebøll carded a six-under-par final round 66 to secure his maiden European Challenge Tour victory at the Mangaung Open with a 21 under par total. Oliver now moves to fourth place on the Road to Mallorca Rankings.
Mizuno has recently moved to its tour strategy to focus on emerging talent.
When we made the decision to focus our efforts on developing younger talent – it was obviously towards a long term view. But young players now are generally so much better prepared to win than they were 20 years ago. We’ll stay patient and keep building towards bigger goals somewhere down the line – but these ahead of schedule wins are so much fun.
