Kruyswjik, Prinsloo spurring each other on

Eye of Africa PGA Championship: day 3Two of the Sunshine Tour’s longer hitters teed it up together in round three of the Eye of Africa PGA Championship, and murmurs of astonishment seemed to follow them around the course.

Jacques Kruyswjik (left) and Jaco Prinsloo (below) both carded six-under-par rounds of 66 in round three to leave them tied for 10th at nine-under-par for the championship, and spectators following the group were amazed by the length on show.

Speaking after their rounds, Kruyswjik and Prinsloo said they motivated each other to do well. Kruyswjik said, “It was really nice playing with Jaco today and we both motivated each other today.”

Eye of Africa PGA Championship: day 3Prinsloo said, “It was really nice playing with Jacques and we kind of – he made a birdie I made a birdie – so it was nice going at each other as mates and, you know, feeding off each other.”

When asked about the spectators that had gathered throughout their round, Prinsloo said he was sure most of the players on tour hit it long in comparison to the spectators. “Jacques and I spoke about it. We’d like to think we’re two of the longer players but to spectators I think everybody hits it long.”

Prinsloo found himself in some trouble off the 18th and did extremely well to save his par. He said, “I almost made an ‘oopsie’ on the last, but luckily I got up and down from about 140 metres.”
