Pearmain breaks trophy drought


Golf sensation Leroy Pearmain made a strong come back by claiming his third Puma Energy Central Open Championship held over the weekend in Selebi-Phikwe. The golfer has not won a single tournament in a year.

Pearmain told Mmegi Sport that many people had written him off, after he experienced a rough patch and lost form.  The young golfer said his family had extended support towards him and offered him the encouragement he needed to win the championship for the third time in a row.  “I appreciate the support I got from Gabriel Tjitjo and Sean Sheils for the last minute advice regarding the swing that I found effective. I had no pressure and I have realised that the only golfer I fear is me,” he said.

Pearmain established a huge lead in his first round and extended it further the in the second one.
