Scott Vincent cards 62 in Jeddah, edges closer to 2024 LIV Golf League ticket 


By Daniel Nhakaniso

Manchester – Zimbabwe golf star Scott Vincent took a big step towards securing his future on the LIV Golf League next season after firing a scintillating eight-under-par 62 in the third round of the LIV Golf Jeddah presented by ROSHN at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club in Saudi Arabia on Saturday.

While most of the attention was on American superstar Brooks Koepka as he stole the show on Saturday with a bogey-free 62 to catapult himself to the top of the leaderboard, Harare-born Vincent provided one of the talking points with an accomplished display.

Vincent, who is part of the Iron Heads GC team, earned his way into the 2023 LIV Golf League season by virtue of his performance last year on the International Series as the Order of Merit leader.

But after his display on Saturday, he’s now one round away from earning his way into the 2024 LIV Golf League season.

Vincent’s eight-under 62 on Saturday at Royal Greens moved him into a tie for fourth with Bryson DeChambeau on the tournament leaderboard.

At eight under for the tournament, he’s four strokes behind leader Koepka.

More importantly the Zimbabwean Olympian is now projected to move into the Top 24 in the season-long points standings. If he stays there after Sunday’s final round, he will finish in the top 24 on the LIV Golf League which guarantees him a spot on the circuit next season.

Despite putting on an impressive display on Saturday, Vincent is however keeping his feet firmly on the ground as he braces for Sunday’s final round with his future in his hands.

“It’s obviously on my mind,” Vincent said, “but it’s something that I can’t really focus on myself. We’ve got one more day of golf. And that’s kind of what I’m focusing on. It’s just about being in the present for me. I’m really grateful to be out here playing and competing with amazing players. And it is going to be an awesome battle tomorrow.”
