Gauteng North A (Daisies) picked up the Swiss Team Trophy for the second consecutive year when they won the WGSA 72 Hole Teams Championship played at Langebaan Golf Estate in the Boland this week.

Bertine Strauss and Izel Pieters defied the Cape of Storms today in the first round of the WGSA 72 Hole Teams Championship when they both carded four-over 76 to top the individual leader-board. The event was played in gale force conditions and heavy rain squalls at Langebaan Golf Estate on the banks of the Langebaan lagoon in the Boland. But Gauteng North A leads the team competition.
Pictured above are the 2010 winners Connie Chen, Kim Williams and Henriëtte Frylinck.
However, losing Connie Chen to the professional ranks has not lessened the chances of the Gauteng A team (the DAISIES) successfully defending their WGSA 72 hole teams championship title which they won at Graceland, Mpumalanga in 2010.
Swaziland’s Nobuhle Dlamini has replaced Chen in the Gauteng North team, and with trio currently all playing off +1 handicaps, the girls look good to retain the Swiss Team Trophy
