ONE of Alberton’s finest golfers in many years, Keith Horne, showed his class when playing at the recent Alfred Dunhill championship, by finishing in the top half of the field.

Top local golfers and from abroad participated in the internationally famous Dunhill championship, held at Leopard Creek Country Club near Malelane in Mpumalanga from December 1 to 4.

Brandon Stone broke away from his challengers to win the championship by seven shots on Sunday for his second European Tour title.

Stone finished with a 5-under 67 at Leopard Creek for 22-under overall, extending his advantage over the chasers, after going into the final round three shots ahead.

Stone made seven birdies and two bogeys and it was a comfortable victory in the end, for the 23-year-old South African, who followed up on his maiden tour title at the South African Open at the start of the year.

Richard Sterne was second last Sunday, after matching Stone’s 67; and Belgium’s Thomas Detry was third, two shots behind Sterne.

Horne played some of his best golf and ended T11, totaling 278 shots over the four days of play to be 10-under overall.
