Gauteng North junior Danielle du Toit gave credence to the old adage “when at first you don’t succeed, try and try again” when she seized a runaway victory in the Nomads SA Girls Championship at Orkney Golf Club on Tuesday. In 2014, Ivanna Samu lost the prestigious title in a three-way play-off to Cara Gorlei.
Luca Filippi went through an intense battle of attrition when he wasted an eight shot lead to lose the Dimension Data Junior Open last July, but the young Western Province standout finally got his just deserts when he claimed the St Francis Links Nomads National Order of Merit event on Monday.
The South African Universities team took fourth in the World Universities Golf Championship in France, South Africa’s top ranked Jovan Rebula led the SA pack at the Brabazon Trophy in England and Southern Cape junior Caylum Boon made a great recovery to finish 33rd in Switzerland on Sunday.
