Taylor breaks through at Northern Amateur

South Africa's number four ranked amateur Louis Taylor erased the disappointment of having a brilliant run at the Sanlam SA Amateur cut short with his first podium finish at the Northern Amateur Match Play on Friday. Taylor, who defeated fellow Springbok Tertius van den Berg 2&1 in the 36-hole final at Randpark Golf Club, was thrilled to lay his hands on his first piece of silverware.

“This really makes up for the disappointment of the Sanlam SA Amateur,” the Harrismith golfer gushed. “It felt good to win and to do it here in my home union made it extra special. I’ve worked really hard on my consistency over the last 12 months. It’s great to see it finally pay off.”
