A cold south-easter wind tested the players to the fullest at the third in a series of 4 events, called the 2022 Clovelly Junior Winter Series, that took place at the Clovelly Country Club – these events are to promote golf amongst the Under 13 and Under 15 age groups. The Clovelly Junior Winter Series was a club initiative that started back in 2018.
In the Under 13 division local member 12 year old Evan Marais repeated his win from last month – on this occasion a fine 75 in the icy conditions. Evan has finished 2nd 1st and 1st in the 3 events held – with improving scores of 79, 76 and 75 respectively. It was the usual tight affair at the top of the leaderboard with Arman Patel (Steenberg) 2nd on 76 and Luke Jacobs (Royal Cape) 3rd on 79.
The Under 13B division was won by 11 year old Luke Pearce (Steenberg) on 37 individual points – after a count-out with Codi Ruiters (Kuils River). The Under 13Cs saw 10 year old Luciahno Smith (Kuils River) win with 31 points
In the Under 15 age group Francois Steyn (Atlantic Beach Links) repeated his win from the 1st event – on this occasion recording a 78 to pip Alex Utterson (Steenberg) by a single shot. Noah Musikanth (KD Mowbray) finished 3rd on 80. The final Clovelly Junior Winter Series event for 2022 takes place on the 14th August.
