Young talent led the way this year!
One of the members came up to me after an incredibly well-played event by the younger members and said, “I think it’s time for a Senior Division”. Tony, you may be right! This year, our Champion, Constantin Unger and runner-up, Pieter Zietsman, both attempted to get their tour cards last month. That didn’t scare our 13-year-old, Shaun Viljoen! Shaun opened with 69 and followed with 74 to finish two off the lead. Constantin, playing off Plus-6, showed his class by coming back from an opening 73, with 68 on Sunday. Pieter Zietsman was steady and nearly holed out on the last to force a playoff. Izzy had all the ladies around the 18th to welcome her in. Her rounds of 78 and 79 were the best ever in Club Champs for the ladies. What impressed me most was the way she rebounded from a messy triple bogey, 7, on the 9th, shooting 38 on the closing nine for the victory.
Golf is a game for a lifetime because all players establish a playing handicap. This allows a higher-handicap player to compete with a lower-handicap player.
The best of the men was Alan Kynoch who will see his name on the Board as this year’s overall Nett Champion. His 73-66 Nett bettered Steve Dent by two. Steve was three under par gross through 15 on the final before the water at 18 stopped his train. His Nett was 74-67 off 4. Chrisna Chalmers had her best-ever round of golf on Saturday when she fired Nett 63. She held on to the Overall Nett prize with a Nett 75 on Sunday. She finished five ahead.
The story continues around the youth. 9-year-old Micah van Eyssen contused to show his dad how to play by firing 91 and 84 from the forward tees. 10-year-old, Hannes Lourens, made 38 points on both days to win the Men’s IPS! Shaun Viljoen at 13 proved he will be around for a long time!
Another highlight came on Sunday, when Adam Buckham aced the 17th, playing in the final group. check out the video…thanks, Dad for signing the bill.
