JOHANNESBURG – Yubin Jung booked his place on the Sunshine Tour for next season when he won the Altron Vusi Ngubeni Tournament at Huddle Park Golf Club on Friday.
Jung closed with a 68 to win on 16 under par, one stroke clear of Keelan van Wyk who signed for a final round of 66. Musiwalo Nethunzwi and amateur Anu Gounden finished third on nine under par with respective rounds of 66 and 69.
The leading 15 golfers and those tied for 15th place all earned their Sunshine Tour cards for the 2022/23 season, while the rest received their Altron Big Easy Tour cards.
“I’m really grateful. I felt like my game has been quite good for the last six or seven months. I’ve added more structure to my game and the way I’ve been practicing. I’ve also changed my mental approach towards my game and it’s paid off,” said Jung.
“I’ve got some goals for this season and my goal will be to make the top 50 on the Luno Order of Merit. It means the world to all of us to be able to play in this Altron Vusi Ngubeni Tournament because it gives us the opportunity to play professional golf for a living.”
