The unforgiving nature of match play always dishes up a certain amount of surprises and, so far, this year’s Sanlam SA Amateur Championship has enjoyed it’s fair share of the unexpected.
A field of 144 hopeful amateurs began the chase for the country’s most prestigious amateur title on Sunday. As dusk fell on the third round at Country Club Johannesburg, there just eight left standing and stories of lucky bounces, cruel twists of fate and the tales of dreams unfulfilled.
Unheralded George golfer Andrew Light ended Jovan Rebula’s dream run, while Louis Taylor had the unenviable task of knocking out his twin brother Eddie 2&1 to make the final eight and a collusion course will leave only one Scot the opportunity to claim a much-talked-about hat-trick.
