Marcel strikes gold again
The day started with a persistent drizzle but turned out to be glorious golfing weather. This is what the juniors experienced on the 31st March at the Bellville Junior Open.
A nice turn-out of 92 boys and girls participated in the final WPGU junior event for the April school holidays.
Following up on his success two days earlier, Marcel Pool put another title behind his name. A fine 4 under par 68, which included 3 birdies and an eagle, saw him home.
Playing the 1st nine Marcel had 8 straight pars and then birdied the 9th. The 2nd nine saw birdies at the 10th (a par 4) and 15th (a par 5) and an eagle at the par 5 17th. Marcel’s only drop was at the short par 3 16th.
For the second tournament in a row, Ridaah America finished 2nd, this time posting a 71 with Jurgen Saunders a shot further back on 72.
