We sat down with outgoing president Karen Olivant to find out more about the highs and lows of her six-year tenure at Womens Golf South Africa. We also found out where her passion for golf administration began and how she plans to spend her 'retirement'.
She might be playing a limited schedule this season, but Menlo Park High School matriculant Danielle du Toit is making every start count. She won the North West Championship in February and on Sunday, the 18-year-old repeated the feat in the ProShop 36-Hole Junior Championship at Country Club Johannesburg.
South Africa’s top ranked Kajal Mistry held her nerve to claim the Sanlam South African Women’s Amateur Stroke Play Championship on Tuesday.
South Africa’s top ranked Kajal Mistry holds all the cards after she opened up a yawning gap on the chasing pack in the second round of the Sanlam South African Women’s Amateur Stroke Play Championship on Monday.
Mistry shared the overnight lead at three under after opening with a 69 at the Wanderers Golf Club, but she underlined her status as Womens Golf South Africa’s 2015/2016 Player of the Year when she pulled five strokes clear on the field.
A near-death experience when Ernie Els was just starting his career certainly gave the four-time Major champion an appreciation for the value of life. And it’s perhaps no surprise that he’s since become one of golf’s most ardent supporters of charity.
Gauteng North’s Danielle du Toit benefitted from extra work with the putter to charge into a three-way tie for the lead in the opening round of the Sanlam South African Amateur Stroke Play Championship on Sunday.
The reigning Nomads SA Girls champion racked up five birdies at The Wanderers Golf Club to join South Africa’s top ranked Kajal Mistry and Woo-Ju Son at three-under-par 69.
In early April, Kaiyuree Moodley threw her name in the hat of prime contenders for this year’s Sanlam South African Women’s Stroke Play Championship when she scored a come-from-behind victory in the prestigious Nomads SA Girls Rose Bowl Championship.
Kajal Mistry. Woo Ju Son. Chiara Contomathios. Danielle du Toit. Kaiyuree Moodley. All juniors and all winners on the Womens Golf South Africa circuit this season. And the odds are good that one of them will step onto the podium in this year’s Sanlam South African Amateur Stroke Play Championship, says defending champion Kaleigh Telfer.
