Trevor Fisher Jnr is due to play the Lion of Africa Cape Town Open in a fortnight’s time, but in the week before that he will head to Spain for the final stage of European Tour Qualifying School, where a top-25 result will secure his card for the 2015 season.
A total of 69 players progressed from second stage, but Fisher makes his way to PGA Catalunya Resort due to his rank of 14th on the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit.
It’s a big week for the 35-year-old, who led the 2013 Joburg Open for three rounds after being voted Players’ Player of the Year at the Sunshine Tour Awards Dinner.
Consistency will be the secret to making the top 25 in Spain next week, and Fisher is experienced enough to stay calm. He’s won eight tournaments on South African soil, but the Final Stage differs from a regular tournament because it is a six-round marathon.
The next two weeks are important for Fisher, who heads to the Lion of Africa Cape Town Open the week after his qualifying school attempt.
The third instalment of the Cape Town Open offers the winner a place at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, which has drawn the interest of many. Fisher finished tied for fifth place at Royal Cape Golf Club last year and he’ll look to win his ninth title in the Mother City and claim a spot at the most lucrative event on the Sunshine Tour calendar.
Plenty will be decided over the next two weeks and Fisher must rise to the occasion.
