George Coetzee Witb

George Coetzee claimed his fourth European Tour title and his second Tshwane Open title after finishing two shots clear of 2017 Q-School champion, Sam Horsfield.

It really was win on home soil for the South African at Pretoria Country Club, where he is currently a member and is also where he won the Tshwane Open title three years ago.

The big hitting Titleist brand ambassador finished the week second in the driving distance stats using his 917 D3 driver, averaging 339.3 yards off the tee.

Coetzee also plays the brand’s latest 718 CB irons and Vokey SM7 wedges, but still carries a 712U utility iron that was first released back in 2013.
