Blaauw wins SA Stroke Play title
PAARL (8 February 2008) - A birdie on the 72nd hole handed Jacques Blaauw (pictured on the right) the SA Amateur Stroke Play title by a shot over Leon-Brink Knoll at the Pearl Valley Golf Estates on Friday.
"Wow I'm speechless," said the Bolander, who will have his name engraved on the trophy alongside the likes of Ernie Els, Trevor Immelman and Richard Sterne.
The Paarl Golf Club player carded a three-over-par 75 to finish the tournament on a four-round total of four-over-par 292, one better than Knoll, who also signed for a 75 and a total of 293. A stroke further back was Victor Dubuisson, who shot a final round five-over-par 77 for 294. [More]
