The 2nd edition of the TAYLORMADE/GRINDROD Boys & Girls U13/U15 Championship took place at Durbanville Golf Club on Monday 8th August. The 64 participants played in superb golfing conditions, barely a breeze, and a golf course that was in great condition.
The under 13 division was keenly contested with Matthew Lotz (Atlantic Beach) scoring a gross 81, closely followed by Cameron Gray (Westlake) and Heinrich Appel (Durbanville) both on 82. It was good to see a total of 32 under 13 players contesting this division.
The U15 defending champion, Sam Simpson (Bellville), finished this time in a tie for 5th position on 78. Tristan Galant, who is down on holiday from the USA, was the winner on a gross 70 closely followed by Luke Pienaar (Somerset West) on 72. In sole 3rd place was Louis Loubser (Durbanville) on 75 – an excellent effort playing off a 7 handicap.
This event was again well attended, like the earlier event played in April.
