Altin van der Merwe wins 2016 Parow Open

PAROW: Altin van der Merwe (Bellville) took full advantage of the perfect autumn weather to win the Parow Open on Sunday.

With back to back 4-under-par rounds, Altin van der Merwe secured a one shot victory on a score of 8-under-par 136 (68,68) for the 36 hole Premier Amateur Tour event, sponsored by The Foschini Group.

With a haul of thirteen birdies over the two rounds, van der Merwe was hoping to set a course record in the afternoon session, had it not been for dropped shots on the 4th, 5th and 18th holes.

However, the chasing pack did not let van der Merwe seperate himself from the field. Elton James (Westlake) finished RunnerUp one shot back on 137 after signing for rounds of 69 and 68.

Three shots back and in solo third place was Michael Sheriff (Bellville) on 140 (72, 68). Whilst Ternce Couthino (Strand) closed on a score of 143 (72, 71). Completing the top 5 was Carlo O'Reilly (Atlantic Beach) who finished on 144 (71,73).

The field of 66 players were treated to Parow Golf course in very good condition with greens that were challenging but fair.
