Van Rooyen in a heated moment.

Hole 17, par3 yesterday was set by the Organizing Committee with a length of 223 yards. The penultimate “A” of the course – Ocean has a lake stretching from the beginning of the hole to the end of the green. It covers the right part of the pit area and two deep sand areas occupy the left side.

After entering the hole, Van Rooyen’s ball landed on the rough grass, bounced to the right and fell into the lake. Unable to contain his frustration, he twice hit the head of the iron on the tee marker. It only withstands the first hit and “booms” after the second. The weapon also flies to the head.
