His son, Rudi Koertzen Jr told South Africa’s Algoa FM News that his father died on impact.
“He went on a golf tournament with some of his friends, and they were expected to come back on Monday, but it seems they decided to play another round of golf,” Koertzen Jr said.
Rudi Koertzen has officiated 331 matches as an umpire in International cricket. (NewsWire)
