Top SA golf earners of the weekend

The top South African golf earners thorough the weekend

South African weekend champions duo, Branden Grace and Dean Burmester joined Sunshine Tour's seven-time champion, Juan Carlo "J.C." Ritchie as the top golf earners through the weekend.

Ritchie prevailed on home ground, and his victory saw him surge up on the latest Official World Golf Ranking list and hoisted him to top of the Sunshine Tour order of merit list.

But, it was Grace and Burmester who made sure of a top golf earners spot at the end of their weeks in the Waste Management Phoenix Open and Saudi Arabia in that order.

Even though Grace tied on ninth at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, he is unswerving with his A-game. The unshakable performance saw him pocket $170 768 - R2 550 095 for such determination.

His steadfast performance saw him leap-frog 5 strides to 69 on the latest Official World Golf Ranking list.

On the Saudi International, Graeme McDowell ended a winless drought; however, it was Burmester, who finished as the top South African.

A total score of 274 saw Burmester tied in 11th place with Matthew Pavon to each bank about R935 048. A result that helped the South African to be amongst this week's biggest movers on the World Rankings list by 14 places from last week's 174 position to 160 this week.
