Conradie strikes again at Randpark 

JOHANNESBURG, 22 November 2017 – For a second time this season, Estiaan Conradie conquered at Randpark Golf Club, but unlike his first pro win at the Firethorn Course, the Pretoria golfer had to dig deep to claim the seventh tournament in the IGT Challenge Tour Race to Q-School at the Bushwillow Course on Wednesday.
The 19-year-old closed with a hard-fought-for five-under-par 67 to edge out older brother Ruan by one shot on a winning total of 13-under 203.
“This win was way, way harder than the last couple of victories,” said Conradie of his seventh victory on the country’s premier golf development circuit.
“There were a tough couple of guys hunting me today. I made a good start, which is always important, especially on the last day when you’re in the mix. I kept my momentum, played solidly and hit the greens, but I also dropped a few. The guys chasing made some birdies, so it got pretty tight down the stretch. It was tough, but I’m happy that I pulled it through.”
Conradie began the final round tied for the lead on eight-under with Philip Geerts from Italy. 
The pair held a slender one shot lead over amateur Ruan Groenewald and two-time champion Matt Bright, while Ruan Conradie, Zabastian de Jager and Swaziland’s Nobuhle Dlamini lurked a further shot back.
The Wingate Park rookie immediately laid down a marker with an eagle at the par-five first. 
He put some more distance between himself and Geerts with birdies at three and five, but let Bright and brother Ruan in the door with bogeys at eight, 11 and 14.
“I hit a six-iron stiff and boxed the putt for eagle to get off to a solid start,” said Conradie. “My ball striking was really superb and I putted very well, but the chipping was not up to my usual standard.
“I didn’t up-and-down for par at eight and I missed another par putt at 11. I birdied the next par five (12), but another poor chip at 14 ended in a bogey and I was back at 10 under.”
Bright grabbed a share of the lead with four birdies in a first five holes and another gain at 11, but his challenge grinded to halt with back-to-back bogeys at 14 and 15 to slip back to at 10 under. Neither player could afford to relax with Ruan Conradie on a charge.
The IGT Challenge Tour Money Leader racked in birdies at one three, five and six to get to 10 under and he shot past the leaders with a pair of birdies at 12 and 13.
“There was no way I was going to let Ruan win two in a row,” Conradie said. “I drove the fairway at 15, hit an eight-iron to a foot and holed the putt for birdie to get within one.
“I took a hybrid off the tee at 16, hit a nine-iron to a foot and made the putt to tie my brother for the lead. At 17, I drove the fairway again, but my four-iron flew the green. I finally pulled off a great chip shot and hit it to three feet. I made the putt to take the lead going down the last
“Ruan made par at the last hole, so I knew a par would win it. I didn’t get fancy; just took all four shots to get the par on the card. It’s was a tough fight down the back nine, but I’m thrilled with the way I fought to pull it through.
The Wanna Be A Champion Academy pair has a standing bet involving the family Camry. “Ruan Conradie shot 66 to record the low round of the day, which means he gets to drive the car until next week’s tournament, but I don’t mind riding shotgun.
“I kept my number one spot in the Race to Q-School Order of Merit and increased the gap on him, so he’ll have to win twice to catch me. Not that I’ll let that happen, either.”

Duo leads logjam at Race to Q-School Randpark 

JOHANNESBURG, 21 November 2017 – Estiaan Conradie and Philip Geerts from Italy share the second lead in the seventh Race to Q-School event, but with 10 players within three shots, the pair could feel the pressure from the chasing pack in Wednesday’s final round at Randpark Golf Club.
In-form Race to Q-School Order of Merit leader Conradie conjured up two eagles to shoot to the top of the pile on eight under 136 with a superb five-under-par 67, but Geerts produced a brilliant back nine that included a string of four birdies for a 68 to grab a share of pole position.
Overnight leader Matt Bright and amateur Ruan Groenewald also shared the lead, but both golfers bogeyed the final hole to slip to a tie for third. Bright – hunting a hat-trick of titles this season – signed for 71, while Groenewald fired seven birdies to tie Conradie for the low round of the day.
Successive rounds of 69 moved Sunshine Ladies Tour campaigner Nobuhle Dlamini and current IGT Challenge Tour Money Leader Ruan Conradie within striking distance at six under. The pair share fifth with rookie Zabastian de Jager, who returned a 70.
Former Sunshine Tour winner Teboho Sefatsa from the Gary Player Class of 2017, Juan Langeveld and Southern Cape rookie Jack Duthie are also in the mix. Sefatsa and Langeveld posted rounds of 68 and Duthie carded a 69 to finish a further shot back at five under.
Conradie was undoubtedly one of the favourites coming into the week.
The 20-year-old padded his tally on the country’s premier golf development circuit when he won the Randpark Challenge at the Firethorn Course in May and combined with older brother Ruan to claim the Zwartkop Betterball Challenge in September.
He backed up victory in the Race to Q-School Series opener at the Els Club Copperleaf with a fourth, a sixth and two runner-up finishes in the last five events. 
Conradie started the day three shots behind Bright, but launched his charge with an eagle at the par-five third. “My tee shot veered a little left, but ran through the bunker,” said the Wanna Be A Champion golfer. “I hit a huge eight-iron out of the rough to four feet and holed the putt. 
“The wind was quite strong and I went with the wrong club at the fourth. I hit driver and ended up in the bush. The fifth is usually a drivable par four, but not in today’s wind. I hit my second to seven feet, though, and boxed the putt for birdie.”
A birdie at 11 and eagle at the par-five 17th got him to eight under.
“I hit my driver slightly left and finished just off the fairway,” he said. “I hit four-iron to eight feet behind the flag and holed the putt. With the tees back and the pins tucked, the wind really made for challenging conditions. I’m in a good position, though, so hopefully I can pull it through tomorrow.”
Geerts made a birdie start, but gave the shot back at the par-four fourth.
Level at the turn, the Italian who plays out of Country Club Johannesburg racked up four birdies in a row from 10 and cancelled a bogey at 16 with a birdie finish.

Dlamini drives into contention at Randpark

JOHANNESBURG, 20 November 2017 – Sunshine Ladies Tour campaigner Nobuhle Dlamini fired a three-under-par 69 at Randpark Golf Club to chase in the first round of the seventh Race to Q-School event.
Matt Bright captured his maiden IGT Challenge Tour in June and finished second in the first event of the Race to Q-School series, but he has since struggled for form. The 23-year-old Pretoria native was back on a hot streak at the Bushwillow Course, though.
Bright set the early clubhouse target with a blemish-free 66 that featured four birdies and an eagle at the par-five 17th. He has a two-shot cushion, but he will be wary of the pursuing pack. 
A total of 25 players finished within five shots of his lead, including Philip Geerts from Italy, who has been knocking in the past few weeks. Geerts dropped the first, but five gains will see him start the second round in a tie for second with Zabastian de Jager and Czech amateur Allan Jirek.
Meanwhile Dlamini struggled on the greens, but her ball striking was magnificent and she was well pleased to finish just three shots off the pace. 
“I hit 14 greens in regulation and I gave myself a lot of good chances, but missed too many putts,” said the Swazi golfer, who held the number one amateur ranking in South Africa in 2012 and 2013.
“My coach (Warrick Druian) and I made some swing changes at the beginning of the year. It’s starting to feel very natural to me and my short game, especially chipping, is really solid. I had 29 putts, though. I just need to get the putter to perform.”
Dlamini will be heading to Morocco in early December to shoot for the First Stage of the Ladies European Qualifying School.
“This week is all about putting the final touches on my game. I’m pretty pleased to be three under, because the Bushwillow course is challenging from everywhere. It’s exactly the kind of test I need right now to finalise my preparations.
“That’s the great thing about the IGT Challenge Tour. It’s not just a springboard for the Sunshine Tour, but it’s great for the guys heading to the Asian Tour Q-School and for the Sunshine Ladies Tour’s players. Nicole Garcia, Bonita Bredenhann, Francesca Cuturi, Ivanna Samu, myself – we’ve all been playing here for years, because it helps us to keep competitive. It’s the perfect place to prepare for Q-School and for next year’s Sunshine Ladies Tour.”
Bright has further cause for concern as Dlamini shares fourth with Jade Buitendag, Luke Trocado, Wayne Stroebel, Jason Roets – already a two-time winner this season – and the young duo that have dominated the circuit in 2017.
Since they joined the pro ranks last year, brothers Ruan and Estiaan Conradie have racked up 12 victories on the country’s premier golf development circuit, including joint success in the Zwartkop Betterball Challenge. Ruan currently leads the IGT Challenge Tour Money List, followed closely by Estiaan. The Wanna Be A Champion pair also top the Race to Q-School Order of Merit, with Estiaan at the top of the pile and Ruan in right on his heels. 
Another former SA number one amateur, Ivanna Samu, shot 70 to tie for 12th, while Swiss amateur Azelia Meichtry grabbed a seat on the bus at one-under with eight players.
