Nethunzwi still hopeful of strong Order of Merit despite recent drop

Musiwalo Nethunzwi says he is not concerned about his game despite four straight missed cuts which have pushed him out of the top 50 on the Order of Merit, a position in which he found himself in July.

“I did not play badly in those missed cuts,” he said about his last four tournaments which saw him plummet from 47th in July to 68th on the money standings.

“I missed a few cuts and I have a few tournaments where I did well. I was playing okay. I just missed by one shot. I missed two tournaments by one shot. I said I must just skip a few tournaments and just go and work on my game and my approach. I have been doing that. It is just a few tournaments and they are in the past for me now. I do not want to think too much about them. I am just focusing on the next tournament,” the Modderfontein Golf Club player said.

He failed to make cuts at the Sun Carnival City Challenge, Vodacom Origins of Golf Zebula, Sun Wild Coast Sun Challenge and Vodacom Origins of Golf Selborne.

Nethunzwi’s ambition for a strong finish on the Order of Merit at the end of the season which he declared in July, still stands. “The goal is still the same. I want to finish in the top 30 on the Order of Merit,”

The 29-year-old hopes to do well next week in the Vodacom Origins of Golf Parys in the course designed by Cobie Legrange and his team, as he had done before.

“I played Parys before I turned professional,” he recalled. “I turned pro in 2013. I played the golf course as a pro as well. It is a nice golf course. I have played well on that course. I am just going there to do my best and let the results speak for themselves. I am just going there to do the things that I have been doing for the last few months, which was working on my game and the approach as well. I have been playing so well recently. I am looking forward to the tournament,” Nethunzwi said.

He still has a good number of events to play which include the co-sanctioned events of the summer, but Nethunzwi knows he will have to start picking up positive results if he is to make the ascent.
