Chinhoi cards impressive 64 to share Stella Artois Players Championship lead

Robson Chinhoi

Zimbabwe’s Robson Chinhoi shot an 8-under 64 to tie for the lead after two rounds
of the Stella Artois Players Championship at Dainfern Golf Estate in Johannesburg on Friday.

Chinhoi began the day very well placed on the leaderboard following a 65 on Thursday and he followed it up with a bogey free 64 which included eight birdies to go to 15-under 129 through 36 holes of the 72-hole tournament.

The impressive start ensured Chinhoi ended a difficult run of six consecutive missed cuts in DP World Tour and Challenge Tour co-sanctioned events in South Africa.

The gifted Mutare-born star is seeking his second win on the Sunshine Tour following his breakthrough victory at the Zanaco Masters last year.

He is joined at the top of the Stella Artois Players Championship leaderboard by the South African trio of Heinrich Bruiners and Michael Hollick who both signed for identical rounds of 65, and 2022 champion Jaco Ahlers who shot an incredible 62.
