David Drysdale made a valiant push toward the winner's circle but settled for second place at the Alfred Dunhill Championship after a 5-under-par 32-35=67 to end his week on 12-under 276, two shots behind the winner David Lipsky.
The Scot was entering the week fresh off a WD at the South African Open due to an arm injury. At the same time we knew he was comfortable at Leopard Creek as he said this in 2016, "It’s a fantastic golf course – one of my favourites. It’s one of the first events I pencil in for my season every year. I love coming down here. The course is amazing. It’s such a good golf course, I think every aspect of your game is tested." Despite the renovations, Drysdale still appears to be fond of Leopard Creek. He capped off his week with just seven bogeys and nothing worse (19 birdies). Drysdale added that 19th birdie at the closing hole to apply some extra pressure to Lipsky who still had two holes to play at the time and was just coming off a double bogey at the 16th. In 471 career starts, Drysdale now has nine podium finishes, three of them being runner-up finishes. He may be taking the scenic route but the 43-year-old is still searching for his way to the winner's circle.
come on David all at Eyemouth Golf Club are shouting for you.
