Samuel strikes gold at Atlantic Beach

The promising Samuel Simpson (Bellville) won the Atlantic Beach Junior Open (previously called the David Frost Invitational) with a fine 2 under par 70 on Sunday the 14th August. Rain threatened during the event but fortunately stayed away. All in all fine golfing conditions.

Samuel recorded a fine opening 34 on the 1st nine, further extending to 4 under after 11 holes, but bogeys at the 13th and 15th saw him record a level par last nine.

Ridaah America (Rondebosch) came 2nd with a 71 whilst Luke Pienaar (Somerset West), Deon Germishuys (Strand) and Craig Louw (Atlantic Beach) all tied on 74.

The B division was won by Jordan Rothman (Durbanville) on a fine 80 while Matthew Lotz (Atlantic Beach) continued with his good form by winning the under 13 division with a gross 74.

A full field of 79 players participated.
