Zander Lombard

Lombard-Zander

Zander Lombard returns for his fourth Open Championship in 2022 – and his first at St Andrews.

Zander Lombard returns for his fourth Open Championship in 2022 – and his first at St Andrews.

Lombard reached the final of the 2014 Amateur Championship at Royal Portrush, but his slender 2&1 defeat to Scot Bradley Neil meant he fell one step short of not only the prestigious title, but also invitations to The Open at Hoylake and the following season’s Masters and U.S Open.

Returned to the Northern Ireland links for the 2019 Open, however, as winner of the Southern Africa Order of Merit.

His performances in the previous year including a win at the Vodacom Origins of Golf, a tie for third at the Alfred Dunhill Championship co-sanctioned with the DP World Tour and joint second in the Cape Town Open.

Made his Open debut at Royal Troon in 2016 after a closing birdie enabled him to finish runner-up to fellow South African Haydn Porteous at Joburg Open, where three spots were on offer.

The same applied in November and this time he claimed the second of them after the event was cut to 36 holes because of weather delays and Covid concerns.

Twice represented South Africa in the Eisenhower Trophy world amateur team championship, America winning both times with sides which included Justin Thomas the first time and Bryson DeChambeau on the second occasion.
