Keelan van Wyk wins NOMADS SA Boys U15 Championship

05 Jan 2013

Keelan van Wyk

After some windless days at the NOMADS SA Boys U15 Championship the players were greeted today by overcast skies and a bit of wind. This made the golf at the beautiful Centurion Country Club a little tricky with the best score of the day being recorded by Emilio Pera (Central Gauteng) with a 1 under par 71, to finally end in 4th position.

The leaders started somewhat jittery today with the overnight leader Keelan van Wyk (Central Gauteng) having two double drops on the first 6 holes, at the par 3 3rd and par 4 6th. A fighting 35 on the homeward nine allowed him to finish on 75, a clear winner by 3 shots. His return of 6 under par 282 shows that he is a player to watch for the future.

The runner-up, Jonathan Whitehouse (Central Gauteng), could not take advantage of Keelan’s earlier mistakes, also having two double drops on the first 6 holes, at the par 4 2nd and the par 4 6th. He finished the day with a round of 76.  

The joint 1st round leader, Dylan Naidoo (Central Gauteng), had a final round 78 which included an 8 at the par 4 9th – this after having an eagle 2 here yesterday! The 5th position was filled by Dylan Mostert (Ekurhuleni) who had a well played 73.

The team event was won by Central Gauteng A with Central Gauteng B 2nd and Gauteng North 3rd.
