Round 1: Vodacom Origins of Golf - Simola Golf & Country Estate

Round 1 of Vodacom Origins of Golf Held at Simola Golf & Country Estate

In last night’s opening round of this season’s Sunshine Tour-sanctioned final event of the Vodacom Origins of Golf held at Simola Golf and Country Estate in Knysna, George Coetzee shot a score of 11-under-par 72 to take the day’s lead. 

But don't let Coetzee’s 11-under finish give you an impression that Simola Golf and Country Estate is a breeze, for it is anything but easy. In fact, I consider Simola one of the toughest layouts on Tour.

The impressive first-round finish is partly because Coetzee brought his A-game. After all, this is his first 2019-20 tour appearance from what’s been a solid year for him in Europe, so I will forgive him for letting it all hangout. 

Just four holes in, Coetzee had carded three-under, but, thanks to an eagle on the 12th, which was his third hole and a birdie on the next, he closed with 61.
