PE’s Titch lands greatest victory in dramatic playoff

PORT Elizabeth’s Titch Moore won the most dramatic Telkom Business PGA Championship in recent history when he beat Ulrich van den Berg in a five-hole playoff at Country Club Johannesburg yesterday.

Moore and Van den Berg finished regulation play tied for the lead on 15 under par. Moore closed with a 67 and Van den Berg with a 68.

But it took five trips back to the par-five 18th before Moore clinched the biggest victory of his career, and after Van den Berg had two clear opportunities to win but missed a two-foot and then four-foot putt for victory on two occasions.

“To my mom who passed away over a year ago, it’s for you,” Moore said as he fought to hold back the tears.
