Experience to count when the province’s top Mid-Amateur players compete at the Mid-Amateur IPT at the Rustenburg Golf Club, North West Province from 10-14 October 2016.
The WP Team:
Captain, Cameron Johnston, Elton James, Werner Theart, Weyers Janse van Rensburg, Stefan Blommaert, Riaan Lewis, Brent Kirstein and Gerlou Roux.
The team will be managed by former Mid-Am IPT player, Ludwig Schreuder. Newcomer to the Mid-Amateurs is Bellville’s Werner Theart. He will bring a wealth of experience to the team.
Theart missed out on selection to the Premier IPT this year, but will make up for it in this team. Werner has competed in the Premier IPT nine times and was captain for seven of those years.
Brent Kirstein will also be making his debut in the team. A member at Westlake, Brent won the WP Mid-Amateur Championships held earlier in September at Royal Cape.
Bellville’s Gerlou Roux, is the current SA Mid-Am Champion. He had an outstanding 2015 season with winning the SA Mid-Am Championship together with five provincial tournaments.
Western Province were victorius in 2013 when the tournament was held at Durban Country Club. KZn are the defending champions, winning in 2015 at East London Golf Club.
