Sipho in range at Crown Mines

On Thursday Sipho Bujela completed his second round at Crown Mines Golf Club and reached the halfway mark of Vusi Ngubeni Qualifying School in second place on three-under-par.


“It was very give and take again today, but I was steadier out there and overall I’m happy with how I played. I’m close to the lead and I’m definitely going to have a go at it,” he said.


The 23-year-old will tee off at 11.40am looking to catch midway leader Kenneth Dube, who heads up the pack on a four-under-par total. Veteran John Bele completes the leading three-ball.


“I’m one shot behind Kenneth,” said Bujela. “Anything could happen today, and if you hit it straight around here there are chances to score. I’ll try my best to stay at the front.”


Dube had a hot start to the second round and made three birdies over his first four holes, but slowed the charge after making a drop at the fifth. He was three-under for the round with three to play, but a double bogey at the 16th clipped his wings and he settled for 71 and a one-shot lead at the halfway mark.


“It was a good round today and I feel confident that I can keep this up. I was very disappointed with my double on the 16th, but otherwise the day went well, so hopefully I can carry this good form into the next two rounds,” he said.
