Swaziland’s Tsietsi Mofokeng enters the Big Easy Tour Championship ranked 30th in earnings after just six starts on the development tour this season.
The 33-year-old has campaigned in South Africa for the last two years, but 2013 has been the better season and he’ll face the Big Easy's top 30 at the Tour Championship in a month's time.
Mofokeng made his biggest cheque to date at Big Easy Royal Johannesburg & Kensington. Aside from the Big Easy tournament, Royal Joburg hosts International Final Qualifying (IFQ) for The Open Championship and the Joburg Open.
The Clarens Golf Club professional was on point at Big Easy Royal Joburg this year and shot a second-round 69 to take up a share of second. Mofokeng’s putt to force a playoff lipped out on the 18th, but the result is proof that he plays best on tough courses.
Mofokeng’s first taste of a Tour Championship will come at Ebotse Golf & Country Estate in a month’s time, and he’ll surely arrive with strategy after making it in on the bubble.
