Zimbabwean amateur golfer Michael Wallace continued his solid run of form this season after finishing in a tie for eight at the Cape Province Open Championship in South Africa on Saturday.
Wallace has been in good form on the local circuit where he won the season opening Dugmore Trophy at Bulawayo Golf Club in January by seven shots.
Last week he showed again that he is able to not just compete locally but also hold his own against the best players in neighbouring South Africa.
The Royal Harare Golf Club rising star carded rounds of 68, 70 and 76 in the 54-hole Cape Province Open Championship at Kingswood Golf Estate for a tournament total of two-under par 214.
Despite his difficult final round Wallace was able to secure a creditable top 10 finish in the competitive field which featured the crème de la crème of South African amateur golf.
Wallace finish 14 shots shy of South African Jordan Duminy, who was simply in a class of his own after firing rounds of 65, 67 and 68 to finish on 16-under par 200.
