Gavin van Aswegen wins at the Vaal

20 May 2011

After an indifferent Senior Interprovincial in April, and a relatively lean run of form, Royal Johannesburg’s Gavin van Aswegen bounced back to record his seventh Senior Title with a two shot victory in the Vaal Senior Amateur Open at Maccauvlei GC.

A very strong field of 93 players contested the two day event – predominantly made up of Seniors from the Highveld.

 Randpark’s Schalk Naude held a two shot lead after Saturday’s first round with a level par 72. Another six players were on 74 overnight.

The course was in immaculate condition, quite long after the wet summer, and the greens were running fast which made scoring difficult.

After holing from off the green on the first hole in the second round, Gavin continued to play solid golf, and despite dropping shots at 10 and 11, he birdied 16 and 18 to record a level 72 on Sunday, and win by two shots from Tim Hewan and Mike Lekhuleni.
