North & South Tussle at Senior IPT – Stellenbosch

NORTH & SOUTH TUSSLE AT SENIOR IPT – STELLENBOSCH

If Western Province pulls out all the stops, they could deny Central Gauteng a 5th successive victory, but the Super Senior Lions are already in prime position ahead of Friday’s final round of the 2021 SA Senior A-Division Inter-Provincial at Stellenbosch Golf Club.

SENIORS
Western Province gunned to the summit with comprehensive 7 – 1 victories against KwaZulu-Natal and Boland on day 3 and the side leads the standings with 10 points.

Giles Buchanan led the way with a round of 68 that earned the side 2 games points, and he was well supported by Cameron Johnston and Ralph Fransman, who added another 4 points to their score.

Mark Louw (70), Greg Woodbridge (71), Jonathan Bernard (74) and Deon Brown (74) delivered the other winning punches for Province.

Keith Forde collected KwaZulu-Natal’s only win with a 69 and Francois le Roux’s 69 did the same for Boland. The two teams draw their match 4-all.

Meanwhile 68s from Greg Gleeson and Sean Quigly, a 71 from Craig Kamps, 75 from Jock Wellington and Stephen Johnston’s 78 helped Central Gauteng to a 5 – 3 result against Eastern Province and 9 points overall.

Western Province has the advantage, though, taking 29 games points to Central Gauteng’s 25 into the final round.

Gauteng North, who will be caught in the middle of the battle between the big guns on Friday, won their third round match against Border 4.5 – 3.5, but went down fighting against Southern Cape.

The Garden Route side came out on top, winning the match 5.5 – 2.5 and scoring the same result against Border lifted Southern Cape to third in the log. KwaZulu-Natal is fourth, but also with 6 points and only 1.5 games points behind Southern Cape, so expect another big battle for third when these two sides face off with Eastern Province on Friday.

Boland will take on Border in the final match of the day.

SUPER SENIORS
Central Gauteng’s Super Seniors are in a solid position to lift the title.

Lawrence Franklin and Colin Weinstein both scored for the side and Colin Hayward halved against Peter Hodson to deliver a 2.5 – 1.5 win against Southern Cape, keeping the side unbeaten. The Lions lead on 6 points, with a healthy 2 point clearance over Western Province.

Western Province celebrated a 4 – 0 clean sweep over Border and Herman September, Richard Brooker, Henry Trevena and Brian Mampies will try to do it all over again in their final round three-way clash with the log leaders and KwaZulu-Natal.

However, Gauteng North is not out of the fight just yet.

The Daisies routed KZN 3 – 1 to push their points tally to 4. The side is third on the log but tied with Western Province on points. With only 2.5 games points the difference, it could be a title fight to the end if Richard Nel, Noel Parsonage, Grant Lister-James and Lynton Beckett find an extra gear against Southern Cape and Border in the final round.
