Zimbabwe’s leading golfer Scott Vincent has been enjoying some downtime in the popular resort town of Victoria Falls after a successful season on the professional golf circuit.
The 30-year-old golf star has been spending some time at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge with his wife Kelsey and baby daughter Zoe after a very busy year.
It is indeed a deserved break for Vincent, who had a successful season.
“It’s been quite a long year so I needed a break and for me nothing is better than being close to the bush and away, just enjoying the scenery, animals, some fresh air and just kicking back for a little bit … there’s nothing like Zimbabwe,” said Vincent.
Vincent enjoyed a stellar season, winning once each on the Japan Golf Tour and the Asian Tours as well as making his major debut at the Open Championship at St Andrew’s.
The back-to-back wins in the Mizuno Open and International Series England were a turning point for Vincent as they secured him an invitation to feature in the inaugural event on the LIV Invitational Golf Series in London.
He didn’t look back as he went on to feature in all events on the new-look golf circuit, where got the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the world’s finest golfers such as Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson and Cameron Smith just to mention a few.
Vincent also finished top of the Asian Tour International Series Order of Merit which earned playing privileges for the 2023 LIV Golf League season.
Vincent is the country’s highest-ranked player on the Official World Golf Ranking in 91st position and is attempting to follow in the footsteps of Zimbabwe’s all-time greats Nick Price, Mark McNulty, Tony Johnstone and Dennis Watson.
