Bianca takes top honours at Ernie Els & Fancourt Foundation Awards

15 year old Bianca Theron proved that there is time for both golf and academics when she secured the prestigious Dr Hasso Plattner Award at the Ernie Els & Fancourt Foundation’s Annual Awards Dinner held earlier this month at the Ernie Els Winery. Bianca, who is enjoying her first year at the EEFF, attained the award with an average of 86% at school. She is a Grade 10 scholar at Stellenberg High in Durbanville and did very well in subjects like Information Technology (95%), Mathematics (96%) and Physical Science (90%). At the end of 2011, Bianca was ranked 15th on the WGSA Senior Player Rankings. She has shown during the year that her golf talents are undeniably equal to her academic talents, and finished the year ranked number 6 on the Senior Rankings.

The event was sponsored by Gideon du Plessis and Old Mutual. Gideon du Plessis, who was also the guest speaker, said in his highly motivational speech that if you believe in yourself everything is possible. He reminded the members how very fortunate they were to have a person like Ernie Els being involved in their lives.
