David Howell missed out on victory at the Joburg Open but was elated that he did enough to book a return to St Andrews.
A place in this summer's Open Championship was on offer for the top three finishers at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club and, although five players tied for second, Howell secured a spot due to his superior world ranking. The Englishman, who carded a 3-under-par 33-36=69 closing round to post 15-under 272, could have been leaving with the trophy too had he not gone flat on the back nine. The 39-year-old played his opening nine in 4-under 33 and held the lead when eventual two-shot winner Andy Sullivan bogeyed 11. But Howell swallowed a water-based bogey at 14 and eight other pars on his back nine meant he came up short. He chose later to focus on the significant consolation prize of his Open spot. "I am absolutely delighted about that, that was one of the main reasons I came down here," he said. "I have not played an Open at St Andrews and I'm not getting any younger so I knew my chances were running out. I am going to really enjoy it." Mar 1 - 11:48 AM
