After winning the Kuils River and Bellville Junior Opens earlier in the year a level par 72 in perfect weather conditions was good enough for Marcel Pool, from Parow Golf Club, to win the Strand Junior Open on Sunday the 11th September.
After the 1st nine Marcel was 2 over par – a birdie at the 2nd, bogey at the 9th and a double drop 5 at the short 8th. A final nine of 34 was good enough for the victory.
In joint 2nd on 74 was Francois Cilliers (Strand) and Hoon Jeong (Westlake) on 74. The B division was won by Michael Copeman (Steenberg) on a good score of 79.
A field of 77 players enjoyed a perfect sunny day on a course in great condition.
