NOMADS SA Boys U19 Matchplay Final Day

08 Apr 2012

Darin De Smidt, Gerhard Conradie and Thriston Lawrence

Thriston Lawrence walked away as the victor of the NOMADS SA Boys U19 Matchplay at the Katberg Eco Golf Estate after an epic struggle against Darin de Smidt. After the morning 18 holes Darin led by 3 holes and continued to keep ahead with a slender 1 hole lead after 27 holes. The final 9 holes started in great fashion for Thriston with a chip in at the par four 10th. A 3 putt by Darin at the short par three 11th and 2 more birdies for Thriston at the 12th and 13th saw the match take a dramatic turn with Thriston Lawrence taking a 3 hole lead. The par four 14th was birdied by Darin to reduce the margin to 2 holes, with him also winning the difficult par four 15th with a par. The 16th was birdied by Thriston to go to dormie 2. The end came at the 35th hole (17th) where both players had pars, with Thriston winning the title with a 2 & 1 scoreline. The standard of golf was outstanding with the wind at times making conditions extremely difficult.

The play-off for the bronze medal was won by Ernie Els & Fancourt Foundation member Zander Gous by a 5 & 4 margin against Kwazulu Natal’s Clayton Mansfield.
