On Saturday, Lawrence took the lead in the three qualifiers of the Joburg Open. After the South African had shot 65 straight into the game, he led 12 under par with 4 strokes, shortening the 65 holes to 36 holes.
“This is a dream that has fulfilled a lifelong dream,” said the ecstatic Lawrence.
I’ve never played a Grand Slam and it’s incredible to hit your first major in St Andrews.
“I can’t wait, I’m so excited. This has been my goal from a young age and it’s incredible to achieve it.”
The Joburg Open has been reduced to 54 holes to allow players. Caddies and match supporters from outside South Africa to return to their home country. Following the emergence of new variants of COVID-19, the country has imposed international travel restrictions.
Shortly after the league leader stepped down in Saturday’s third round. A thunderstorm forced a lengthy suspension with no prospect of finishing the game. The result was announced based on the 36-hole score.
150th British Open
Lawrence will be the first to compete at St Andrew’s with compatriot Lombard, who finished second with a score of 8 under par. While Britain’s Chesters finished in third place with the exempt Shaun Norris.
“If you have the chance to compete in the 150th British Open at the Golf House. You can’t dream of anything more important than this”. Said Lombard, who has competed in the first golf tournament three times.
Chesters will compete in his third Open, and he performed well as an amateur in 2015 when he took 12th place in St Andrews.
“I played in St Andrews as an amateur in 2015. Participating in the 150th British Open championship will be very exciting. I did really well that year. It was really great. But I said at the time that it would be good to come back there as a professional. So I’m very happy and excited. I know this course very well, so I hope to get a chance in July.”
