ROBINSON KUNDA, Lusaka
ZAMBIAN golfer Dayne Moore on Thursday missed the cut for the second time in two weeks after carding seven over 151 at the Sunshine Tour
sanctioned Big East Tour Challenge at Ebotse Links in South Africa.
Moore also failed to make a cut at the just-ended Mopani-Redpath Zambia Open Golf Championship that was held at Nkana Golf Club in Kitwe.
The Ndola-based golfer, who was the sole Zambian representative at the tournament, put up a dismal performance on day one firing a disappointing four over par 76.
He improved by one stroke in the second round and carded a three over par 75.
The cut was placed at six over and despite the second round improvement, Moore still missed the cut by one shot as he finished with seven over 151 after two days.
Moore did relatively well on the front nine in round one signing out with just one bogey on hole six and leveled on the rest but he found it hard at the back, where he posted four bogeys and one and a double bogey to put pressure on himself.
And after failing to make a cut at the Zambia Open last week, South African golfer Breyten Meyer was headed for victory at the Big East Tour and MENA Tour’s South to East as he led with seven under 137.
Meyer carded seven birdies around the tight lay-out.
He said his performance was due to some self-reflection.
“I sat down after my rounds in Zambia and I was kind of disappointed because I knew I was playing well. I knew I had three Big East events coming up and I just had to be patient. It was a matter of time and it paid off today [yesterday], which was nice,” Meyer said.
