Play-off decides outcome of SA U13's

03 Oct 2012

Temperatures in the mid 30’s greeted the players on the final day of the NOMADS SA U13 Championship held at Nelspruit Golf Club.

Although it was extremely hot, golf of a high standard was played. It was an eventful day with the lead changing hands on a number of occasions. The joint overnight leader, Reece Els (Southern Cape), fell away with a final round 79 to finish in joint 6th position.

A missed 1.5 meter putt on the final green by Deon Germishuys (SA Kids A) resulted in a 3 way sudden-death play-off with Jayden Schaper (Ekurhuleni) and Christo Lamprecht (Southern Cape). The 1st play-off hole , the 383 meter par 4, saw Christo fall out of contention but a superb 10 meter putt on the 2nd hole clinched it for Jayden. Jayden had the round of the day, a 1 over par 72.

In joint 4th place was Dezen Oosthuizen (Kwazulu Natal) with the leading girl, Catherine Lau (Gauteng North).

The team event was won by Southern Cape (1186), Gauteng North 2nd (1204) and SA Kids A 3rd (1206).

The tournament saw some great golf being played with an abundance of talented junior golfers on display.
