Erik Van Rooyen can holiday with a smile on his face after his final round of 6-under-par 31-35=66 confirmed solo second in the Joburg Open on 20-under 267 at Randpark Golf Club, three back of winner Shubhankar Sharma.
The South African was at an advantage all week as a Johannesburg resident and as a European Tour rookie he needs to make the most of every edge he can gain. With that in mind he opted out of the Mauritius Open after missing the cut in Hong Kong, specifically to get his game set for the Randpark challenge. The decision paid off as he was superb all week and in the interrupted final round he was the only chaser who got close to the superb Sharma. On Sunday he ticked 3, 4, 5 and 7 before playing a wonderful wedge to kick-in range seconds ahead of the hooter sounding. On Monday morning he converted the par breaker only to see Sharma do the same. Van Rooyen managed one birdie on the back nine, but it was not enough. The consolation was a spot in the 2018 Open Championship. He finished three shots clear of Shaun Norris and Tapio Pulkkanen in a share of third. Dec 11 - 4:17 AM
