Fresh from his top 5 performance at Pecanwood Golf and Country Club, in the NOMADS North and South Championship, local member 15 year old Nicolas van der Vyver continued with his fine run of form by winning the STRAND Junior Championship.

The NOMADS North and South Championship was held at the beginning of September with WP representatives Jack Buchanan (68,70&72=210) finishing runner up, and Nicolas van der Vyver (71,71&73=215) finishing in 5th place. This was not the only recent standout performance of Nicolas – he was a member of the victorious Paul Roos High School side that captured the SA High Schools Championship at Humewood Golf Club during August – together with his twin brother, Andries, Gerard Hartman, and Jack Brugman.

To quote Mike Tyson – β€œConfidence breeds success and success breeds confidence…” – currently Nicolas has this in abundance. A near faultless performance besides a bogey at the final hole – 16 pars, a birdie at the par 4 7th and the final hole drop. A fine level par 72 in testing conditions – a persistent biting cold breeze during the day. It was not all plain sailing – 13 year old Henru Walters (Durbanville) finishing a shot behind with Craig Jacobs (Atlantic Beach Links) and Bjorn Nord (Milnerton) completing the top 4 with 74s.

It was a case of being so close for 15 year old Bjorn Nord. Playing the final hole, and being level par at this stage, Bjorn recorded a double par 7 at this testing hole. In fact not a single birdie was recorded on this par 5 hole during the event. Bjorn is reaping the benefits of dedicated hard work and this has been translated in some great performances of late.

The B division was won by Jayden Hendricks (Fairview) on a gross 86 with Luke Jacobs (Royal Cape) winning the Under 13A division title on a gross 81. The U13B division saw Kazio de Leeuw (Atlantis) leading the pack on 32 points.
