DP World Tour double header: Sponsors Invite Dan Bradbury wins the Joburg Open, Cameron Smith wins on the Australian Tour after three years

Last week, a brand new DP World Tour season of 2023 was kicked-off with two events played on two different parts of the world i.e., the Joburg Open in South Africa and the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship in Australia.

Great Britain’s Dan Bradbury, who didn’t had a DP World Tour card, entered the Joburg Open through a “Sponsors Invite” and to everyone surprise the Englishman was leading the Joburg Open after 54-holes.

On the final day, Dan shot a five-under-67 to win the Joburg Open 2022 by three-strokes.

And in only his third start on the DP World Tour, Dan won his first DP World Tour event in Johannesburg, South Africa.

And last week, the Open Qualifying Series was started with the Joburg Open. The leading three players were rewarded three places for the 151st Open at Royal Liverpool.

Dan Bradbury, Sami Valimaki and Christiaan Bezuidenhout were awarded invitations for the 2023 British Open in Hoylake.

10,000 Km away another DP World Tour event was concluded on the same day in Australia, as Cameron Smith won the weather affected Fortinet Australian PGA Championship by three-strokes.

The Australian PGA Championship was a co-sanctioned event between the ISPS Handa PGA Tour of Australasia and the DP World Tour.

Cameron played his final round with a three-stroke lead and won the tournament with a three-stroke margin. The Fortinet Australian PGA Championship was Cameron’s first win on the domestic circuit after three years because he won the same tournament in December 2018.

Also, by winning the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship, Cameron earned his first OWGR points, ever-since he joined the LIV Golf Tour in late-August. Cam Smith won 10 OWGR points for his victory in Queensland, Australia.

Cam Smith stays third on the World Golf Rankings following the conclusion of “Week 48” on the OWGR rankings.

On this day Yuvraj Singh Sandhu won the IndianOil Servo Masters Golf 2021

Relive Yuvraj Singh Sandhu's IndianOil Servo Masters Golf 2021 victory -

The 21st edition of the IndianOil Servo Masters Golf was staged in India’s North-Eastern town of Digboi in Assam.

During those four days (17th to 20th November) of the IndianOil Servo Masters Golf, the conditions were near perfect for playing golf with bright sunlight on all four days and zero chances of rainfall. The only downside about the tournament was that the first two days were started late due to heavy fog in the early mornings of Digboi which forced the PGTI to delay tee timings of the morning groups.
 
Yuvraj took advantage of the conditions by getting his opening two-round scores in the sixty’s (66, 68) to become the sole leader of the tournament after 36-holes, with a two-round total of ten under 134.
 
On the second last day of the event, Yuvraj added five strokes to his scorecard by scoring 67 in round three.
Yuvraj at -15, went to the final round with a two-stroke lead over the rest of the field. The 24-year-old had a shot for victory going into the Sunday round (20th November).

On the final day of the IndianOil Servo Masters Golf, Yuvraj put on a final round show for the ages, Yuvraj scored a superb 64 in his fourth-round where he shot five birdies, one bogey, one eagle in his back nine to win the IndianOil Servo Masters Golf by a gigantic margin of six-strokes.

Yuvraj with an aggregate score of 265, accomplished his maiden victory on the PGTI Tour.

And today 20th November, 2022 marks the 1st anniversary of Yuvraj's IndianOil Servo Masters Golf 2021 victory.
