Hennie Otto won the R3.2-million Dimension Data Pro-Am at Fancourt yesterday by four strokes.
His approach shot to the 18th on the Montagu course typified the golf Otto played during the tournament. His wedge shot landed a foot from the flag for a tap-in birdie to complete a dominating performance which gave him a comfortable margin over second-placed James Kingston.
“I was hitting those kinds of shots well all week and my putting also started coming right after I went back to my old putter,” he said.
It was Otto’s 10th title on the Sunshine Tour and his first since his 28-under-par tour-de-force at last February’s Vodacom Championship.
Overnight leader George Coetzee stayed in contention until a bogey on 13 put paid to his chances.
