Stonehage Big Easy 30: Desne van den Bergh

Rookie Desne van den Bergh heads to the Big Easy Tour Championship ranked 16th and has come as close as sole second this year, making top honours his next box to check.

 

The 23-year-old has shown great maturity on the Sunshine Tour this year, finishing tied fourth at the Zambia Sugar Open and tied 19th at the Lombard Insurance Classic.

 

On the Big Easy Tour his long hitting has been crucial to his five top-20 results, but the diamond in his season has been a sole second finish at Big Easy Copperleaf, where he took Jacques Kruyswijk to a playoff before conceding victory.

 

A share of 10th at Big Easy ERPM was the final icing to van den Bergh’s regular season and earned him 16th place on the Order of Merit.

 

The Vaal de Grace professional has battled at the top of the leaderboard enough times to understand what it takes to win, and will be a dark horse at Tour Champs.
