Jean putting for a good cause

15_VOG_StFrancis_HugoJ_stuntNEWEleven-time Vodacom Origins of Golf winner Jean Hugo was on Tuesday involved in a competition of a less serious nature … a “putt-off” at the ProAm for the Vodacom Origins of Golf, presented by Samsung, at the magnificent St Francis Links in St Francis Bay.

Hugo, who won the Vodacom Origins of Golf Vaal de Grace two weeks ago, got involved in this fun initiative to raise funds for charity, with Vodacom making a sizable donation to organisations campaigning against gender-based violence.

Having established himself as the man to beat in this series, Hugo showed he is as adept with a bunker rake on the greens as he is with a putter, stroking the ball to tap-in distance with the garden implement.

“I just hope this is the first and last time this week I will have to use the bunker rake,” joked Hugo ahead of the Vodacom Origins of Golf St Francis Links tournament, which begins on Thursday this week after the conclusion of the two-day ProAm on Wednesday.
