Darren Fichardt makes his third World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship appearance this week.
The South African is in excellent form, finishing inside the top 16 in five of his last six starts across the globe. His first trip to Trump National Doral was in 2000, finishing T40. Fichardt returned in 2004 and tied for 59th. Course history should be taken with a serious grain of salt, as Doral underwent a major redesign after last year's event. Not a member of the PGA TOUR, he ranks 99th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Mar 3 - 9:25 PM

For finishing second on the Sunshine Tour's Order of Merit, Darren Fichardt qualified for the 2014 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

The South African tied for 50th at The Nelson Mandela Championship today, but he laid the foundation for the exemption (awarded to the top two in season-long earnings) with a win in February and a trio of runner-up finishes thereafter. It will be his third appearance in the WGC but first at Trump National Doral. He first qualified in 2000 at Valderrama in Spain, and then again in 2004 at Mount Juliet Conrad in Ireland. In his only PGA TOUR start since the 2011 season, the 38-year-old posted a T61 at the WGC-HSBC Champions six weeks ago.

Darren Fichardt carded a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in his final round of the Africa Open to record a two-stroke victory.

It wasn't the prettiest of titles but the South African will take it. He and fellow countryman Jaco Van Zyl shared the overnight lead. They remain tied through six holes today before Fichardt opened a margin he wouldn't relinquish despite a good effort to do so. Bogey-free 4-under through 13, he then dropped shots at 14, 16 and 17 to post 16-under 69-67-65-71=272. But on a windy day at East London Golf Club in the Eastern Cape province, he was able to hold on for his fourth career European Tour victory and first since last year's Saint-Omer Open. Van Zyl closed with a 73 to share second place with Grégory Bourdy (70) at 14-under 274. Garth Mulroy shared low-round honors on Sunday with a 67 to take fourth place outright at 13-under 275.

With a final-round, 2-over-par 36-37=73, Darren Fichardt recorded a three-stroke victory at the Saint-Omer Open.

The South African held a five-stroke advantage after 54 holes before stumbling home to post 5-under 279. England's Gary Lockerbie took runner-up honors at 2-under 282. "It was messy today," Fichardt said following the finale at Aa Saint Omer Golf Club in Lumbres, France. "It definitely wasn’t pretty. I was absolutely terrified and I was happy we didn’t have to play any more holes." This is his third victory on the European Tour, but first since 2003. "To win is awesome," the 37-year-old added. "The last four years I’ve had injuries and missed out at the Qualifying School a couple of times, and you wonder if you’ll ever make it back. So it was amazing to get my card last year back at Q School, and to win on my ninth start this season is a dream come true. The exemption for next season is very welcome."

South Africans Darren Fichardt, Jean Hugo and Josh Cunliffe qualified for the 2010 British Open via the International Final Qualifying at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington in South Africa today.

Fichardt and Hugo were co-medalists at 6-under-par 136 for the 36-hole qualifier, which was extended into a third day today due to inclement weather. Cunliffe (138) survived a playoff with two others to earn his berth. Dating back to 2000, Fichardt has missed the cut in all four of his starts at the British. Hugo is 0-for-2 (1999, 2001). And Cunliffe missed the cut in his only start in 2008. The next IFQ is in Malaysia on March 10-11, when four more will be added to the field of 156.
