U19 & U13 - Junior Interclub Winners

The 2nd “Junior Interclub Team Challenge” for 2022 took place at Parow Golf Club – although the weather forecast for the afternoon was light rain, the players were greeted by relatively clear skies but somewhat testing windy conditions.

The 1st “Junior Interclub Team Challenge” for 2022 was held early in February at Kuils River Golf Club – KD Mowbray A was then victorious. They yet again gave a good account of themselves, finishing as runner up. In the end a comprehensive 8 shot margin saw Strand Golf Club being crowned junior club champions.

The Strand Golf Club quartet comprised Nicolas van der Vyver (73), Andries van der Vyver (76), Matthew Arendse (81) and non-counting Canzius Erwee (85). It was the inform van der Vyver’s that provided the sparkle. A solid level par start of 36 by Nicolas, after the 1st nine, set up a firm foundation – a fighting 37 back home saw him grab the individual honours – overall 3 birdies and 4 bogeys. Brother Andries started slowly with drops at his 1st 2 holes and completed his nine in 39 shots, also a fine 37 coming home saw him post a 76.
In the individual stakes the van der Vyver’s were followed by Jungwi Lee (Royal Cape) and Luke-Daniel Pillay (Atlantic Beach), both recording 77s.

The Under 13 division saw Royal Cape win by the same victory margin as in the U19 division – an 8 shot victory with Clovelly finishing 2nd. The Royal Cape pair of Luke Jacobs (78) and Traigh Pathon (85) avenged their tantalizingly close defeat of a single shot, in the 1st “Junior Interclub Team Challenge” that was held in February. In the individual stakes Luke Jacobs finished a clear 3 shots ahead of Clovelly’s Evan Marais.
