  • Description

    CONSISTENCY AND BRILLIANCE - HENNING AND PLAYER - TOOK SOUTH AFRICA TO A WELL-DESERVED VICTORY IN THE CANADA CUP, WHICH ENDED AT PICTURESQUE CLUB DEL CAMPO, MADRID, YESTERDAY (SUNDAY).

    SOUTH AFRICA, WITH A FOUR-ROUND TOTAL OF 571, FINISHED EIGHT STROKES AHEAD OF SPAIN. THEN FOLLOWED THE UNITED STATES (582), CANADA AND ENGLAND (585), COLOMBIA (590) PUERTO RICO (593), FORMOSA (594) AND SCOTLAND (595).

    GARY PLAYER, THE UNITED STATES OPEN CHAMPION, WON THE INDIVIDUAL TITLE, WITH A FOUR-ROUND TOTAL OF 281. NEXT WAS AMERICA'S JACK NICKLAUS (284), R. SOTA, SPAIN (285) AND C. RODRIGUEZ, PUERTO RICO (286).

    PLAYER'S PARTNER, HAROLD HENNING, SCORED 290.

    THE SOUTH AFRICANS DOMINATED THE TOURNAMENT, LEADING FROM START TO FINISH ON THE DIFFICULT PAR - 72 COURSE.

    PLAYER'S TWO BRILLIANT ROUNDS OF 69 AND 68 COMBINED WITH HENNING'S ROCK-LIKE CONSISTENCY (HE ALSO SCORED A 69) WAS TOO MUCH FOR THE STAR-STUDDED OPPOSING TEAMS.

    NICKLAUS, PARTNERED BY AN OUT-OF-FORM TONY LEMA MADE LITTLE IMPRESSION, WHILE THE TOP AUSTRALIAN COMBINATION, PETER THOMSON AND KEL NAGLE, WAS FORCED TO RETIRE.

    THOMSON PULLED A MUSCLE IN HIS RIGHT SIDE DRIVING OFF THE FOURTH TEE ON SATURDAY.

    NEARLY ALL THE LOCAL INTEREST CENTERED ON THE POPULAR SPANISH PAIR SOTA AND MIGUEL WHO WERE PAIRED IN THE LAST MATCH WITH THE SOUTH AFRICANS.

    SOTA'S 72 AND MIGUEL'S 75 WEREN'T GOOD ENOUGH TO SHAKE THE SOUTH AFRICAN PAIR.
