I watch a fair amount of pro golf, and I read about it both on line and in the printed press, but there still comes times when I run across a name I just don’t know anything at all about. I like to learn, so I google’em, and since you might like to learn as well I thought I’d share a few tidbits about Neil Schietakat, who tees off at 6:10 AM at The Open.
- Born 1/31/84 in Harrismith, South Africa.
- Has participated in the Africa swing of the European Tour for the past four years.
- Best finish this year was 2:nd place in the Telkom PGA Championship on the African Tour.
- Ranked 452 in the Offical World Golf Ranking.
- Qualified for The Open by way of a qualifying tournament in South Africa in January.
- Nicknamed “Skietie”.
Keep’em in the short stuff.
