ZIMBABWEAN top professional golfer Scott Vincent continued with his fine form after he finished tied on position 18 at the LIV Golf Washington DC at Trump National Golf Club, USA, on Sunday.
Vincent was part of the field that teed off last Friday and has for the third time managed to make the cut.
The Zimbabwean had rounds of 69, 72 and 69 for a total three-under-par 283 to make it in the money zone of the tournament.
Vincent was tied on 18th with Graeme McDowell, Eugenio Chacarra, Luarie Canter and Pat Perez as they shared US$250 000 for their efforts.
Harold Varner III made a short birdie putt at the 18th hole to win the LIV Golf event.
The American prevailed with a final-round 68 which brought him to 12-under for the week, staving off Branden Grace.
Varner III was ahead of South African Grace as Mito Pereira of Chile, the leader entering Sunday, settled for third at 10 under after a 71.
Varner III, 32, won his first tournament since the Saudi International in February 2022.
For his efforts, Varner took home the top prize of $4 million, bringing his earnings on the year to $7,565,666.
Branden Grace finished a shot back from his second win on the Saudi Arabia-backed circuit and got $2.13 million, while Mito Pereira earned $1.5 million for his third-place finish.
Meanwhile in-form professional golfer Robson Chinhoi managed to make the cut at the Kit Kat Cash and Carry pro-am at Irene Country Club at the weekend. Chinhoi is enjoying his time in the Sunshine Tour after he recorded his first tournament win at the Zanaco Masters last week.
The Royal Harare based professional had rounds of 76, 67, 75 and 74 for a total four-under-par 292.
The tournament was won by Loius Albertse who finished in style by sinking a 30ft putt for birdie on the 18th hole, completing an impressive four-under 68 in the final round, and a total of 23-under-par for the R2 million event, well clear of Kyle Barker in second place on 19-under.
But both playing partners Malcolm Mitchell and Barker had put Albertse under pressure through the final day.
The South African managed to pocket R320 000.
