Kaylah Williams wins at Bellville
WP Women’s Amateur Championships – Bellville 21-23 March 2018
It’s not over till the final hole!
Ekurhuleni’s Caitlin McNab took a slender two shot lead from Kaylah Williams into her second round at the WP Women’s Amateur Championships; she took her lead to three with an early birdie, and when Williams fell back further when she opened her final round with a bogey and double bogey, McNab was now in the lead by six.
The chasing pack of Danille du Toit (76/77 – 153), Woo-Ju Son (74/82 – 156) and Zethu Myeki (75/83 – 158) were battling with the windy conditions and were unable to close the gap on McNab.
When McNab stood on the 17th tee box she could not forsee the drama that was to unfold. A double bogey on the par 5, 17th put a dent into her lead; after signing for a quadruple bogey on the par 4, 322metre, 18th her chance to win the championship was over.
It was Kaylah Williams’s (73/78 – 181) second provincial win, after her win at the 2016 Ackerman Championships.
Westlake’s Alison Bourne won the Executive Trophy in the Silver Division, and Bellville’s Ems Hepburn won the Bronze division.
