First PAT win for Davidowitz


The ‘South Easter’ blew from the first hole until the last. Windy, windy, windy… the field battled against the elements at the Strand Open held on Sunday 18 November 2018.

Playing in his third Premier Amateur Tour (PAT) event, Hermanus’s Tyron Davidowitz came into the tournament with some good form after finishing second at last week’s King David Mowbray Open.

Davidowitz shared the first round lead (+3) with Strand’s Elmo Barnard. However, with an eagle, double bogey, bogey finish, Davidowitz managed to hold off a challenge from KD Mowbray’s Cameron Johnston who moved up the leader board after carding a two-over-par 74, the lowest round of the day, to win his first PAT event 75-76 (151).

Elmo Barnard and Riaan Lewis finished in T3 position on +9, total 153.
