Eastern Province reigned supreme in the battle for promotion at the 2015 South African Mid-Amateur Inter-Provincial Championship at East London Golf Club on Friday.

The Bay side demolished Free State 10 – 1 and mowed down Mpumalanga 9 – 3 in the final round to celebrate their promotion in style with an unbeaten performance in Buffalo City.

Eastern Province scored a clean sweep in the Foursomes against both teams.

David Konzani – playing at number one – defeated Gino De Crescenzo from Free State 7 & 6 and Mpumalanga’s Eddie Daniel 2 & 1 to set the tone for the Singles and Mzuyanda Zingela, Johan Louis Vorster and Ryno Ferreira piled on the points against both sides.

Johnny Ludick beat Free State’s Desmond van Viegen 2-up and halved against Steve Smit from Free State, while Christian Pienaar downed Nico Reyneke from Mpumalanga 1-up.

Attie Burger beat Roedu du Plessis 3 & 1 to seal the win against Free State and Pienaar halved against Brian Naidoo for the win against Mpumalanga.

Southern Cape took an impressive 8 – 4 victory against Boland, but Border spoiled their chances to catch Eastern Province with a 6-all draw.

The Garden Route side had to settle for second, while the local heroes downed Boland 6.5 – 5.5 to finish in third in the standings.

Mpumalanga downed Free State 7.5 – 4.5 in the final B-Section match to finish fifth behind Boland and Limpopo downed Northern Cape 8 – 4 to avoid the bottom of the log.
