WP and Boland teams showcase SAGDB players

Nine SAGDB players turned out for the respective provincial teams at the recent Western Province versus Boland u/12 and u/14 Junior Challenge. The competition was contested over two weekends in February, the first at Somerset West Golf Club and the second at King David Golf Club.

At the first outing at Somerset West, Dylan Scholtz was the best performer in the WP u/14 Invitational team, and tied for the second best u/14 player overall. His round of 75 included a back nine of two-under par 34.

In the u/12 event, Tristan Galant tied for the second best Western Province player on show, with a round of 75. His provincial team mate Hilmi Mallick carded a 77.

Riaan Rooi was the best Boland u/12 player with an 18-hole score of 76. Jamie Joseph carded an 81, while Crystal Beukes came in with a 93.

A week later Dylan Scholtz maintained his top form, once again recording the second best score in the u/14 event with a round of 76. Meanwhile, Clint Jansen's 81 was the third best score by any player in the Boland u/14 team.

Tristan Galant, Hilmi Mallick and Riaan Rooi also did well in the u/12 event once again. They all shot rounds of 75 to tie for the third best scores by u/12 players. Jamie Josephs was one shot back. Crystal Beukes also impressed with a round of 84.
