Month: September 2012
Last year’s winners, Korea, shot up the leader board on Day 2 of the 2012 Women’s World Amateur Teams Championship in Turkey, finishing on 8-under-par.
Brandon Stone, Haydn Porteous and Zander Lombard are geared up to launch their bid to become the first South African team to lift the prestigious Eisenhower Trophy since the World Amateur Team Championship launched in 1958. And the country’s leading three amateurs will carry some red hot form into the 2012 edition of the world’s most prestigious biennial team competition, which tees off at the Antalya Club in Turkey from 4-7 October.
What looked to be the Western Province’s 17th triumph turned into a glorious moment for Boland and for the first time in 52-year history of the country’s most prestigious amateur teams competition, two teams will share the South African Inter-Provincial title.
The Western Province and Central Gauteng will face off in Friday’s final round of the South African Inter-Provincial what promises to be an epic battle for supremacy but, while the big dogs fight about the bone, Boland could sneak in the back door.
There are still two rounds left and lots of golf to be played, but a resurgent Boland and gritty Western Province side threw the 52nd South African Inter-Provincial Championship wide open on Wednesday. Central Gauteng had plotted a course for their title defence with positive results against Limpopo and KwaZulu-Natal over the first two days, while Gauteng North stayed close behind. But now the tournament has developed a distinct three-way split and is heading for an almighty showdown.
