Stonehage Big Easy 30: Callie Swart

The veteran form of Callie Swart has amounted to four top-10s on the Big Easy Tour this year, which means the 47-year-old faces the Tour Championship ranked 11th.

 

Swart, a patient man from Pretoria, has featured on the Big Easy Tour since its inception and in 2011 won at Big Easy Houghton.

 

He began the 2013 season with a sole second finish at Big Easy Roodepoort, where he shot a second-round 64. A fortnight later he shot 66 during the second round at Big Easy Observatory, which secured a share of 15th.

 

Fast forward to June. Swart contended in the tough conditions at Big Easy Wingate, shooting rounds of 69, 72 to share third place. In that same month he shot rounds of 71, 72 at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Houghton Golf Club for a Big Easy share of sixth place.

 

One of the highest ranked players without a win this season, Swart has built his year around consistently being in the mix.
