Two Jacks on top of the Pack
It took 22 holes to finally decide the winner of the SOMERSET WEST Junior Championship on a perfect golfing day at Somerset West Golf Club, yesterday the 14th February.
After regulation play Jack Buchanan (Milnerton) and Jack Brugman (Strand) were tied on 5 under par 67. Both players had 7 birdies and 2 dropped shots in their rounds, with a 3 metre putt on the last hole allowing Jack Buchanan to get into the play-off.
Jack Buchanan is currently 1st on the WP Junior Golf OoM whilst Jack Brugman has moved up to 4th place.
The perfect weather saw some great scoring on the day – Craig Jacobs (Bellville) 68, Liam Adonis (Atlantis) a 69, whilst there were 3 players on 70.
The B division was won by Ethan MacGregor (KD Mowbray) on a respectable gross 79, whilst the C division winner was Mogammed Peterson (Fairview) on 44 points.
In the U13s 9 year old AJ van Emmenis, visiting from the UK, recorded a brilliant 71 with Henru Walters (Durbanville) in close pursuit on 72.
Du Toit Eaton won the U13Bs with 39 points – another 9 year old.
