South African duo Christiaan Bezuidenhout and Dylan Frittelli enjoyed a profitable week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.
The pair left Arnie’s Place with mixed emotions after Bezuidenhout tumbled down the leaderboard shooting a 79 in the final round. It left him down in 18th place but still able to bank $118 885 or R1 924 700 for his week’s work.
Frittelli battled hard all week in the tough conditions and a closing 75 was enough to help him match Bezuidenhout’s tally.
Neither saw a green arrow in the latest Official World Golf Ranking with Bezuidenhout down one place to 49th and Frittelli down two spots to sit in 120th.
Over on the European Tour, George Coetzee left the Qatar Masters some €35 943 0r R662 827 richer. He was unable to keep up his scintillating start to the final round as he played the last 10 holes in one over par. He did, however, rise nine places to 155th in the world. Brandon Stone, who ended 44th, moved up to 160th in the world.
On the Asian Tour, Jaco Ahlers banked $9 100 or R146 869 after ending T26 at the Malaysia Open.
