EKURHULENI SCORES A DOUBLE ‘WHAMMEY’
Our EGU champion, Jayden Schaper and the country’s top ranked junior took the 2017 Dimension Data Junior Open title, played at Fancourt Country Club last week. He edged out two ‘threatening’ players to win by one stroke on an eight-under-par 209.
Jayden admits that this was one of the toughest wins of his career. “I had to hang tough and remain patient and am really pleased that I got the job done.”
Playing in the Dimension U15 Challenge at the Montagu Course, Nash de Klerk carded a final round of one-over-par 73 to celebrate his first victory on the national circuit on a final score of four-under-par 213. Nash also had to dig deep as he faced a strong challenge from a Southern Cape player. After an eagle start, and finishing his round with a birdie, Nash was able to raise the winner’s trophy.
We all join Martin Saaiman, our EGU President in congratulating both Jayden and Nash on their exceptional performances. “We couldn’t be prouder of our boys. They both showed such spirit and character and we are delighted with their respective wins.”
