Coetzee and Grace remain in form
George Coetzee and Branden Grace remain the inform players with their victories in the last few weeks.
Following on his SA Amateur Stroke play victory and subsequent selection to the SA Zone VI side Branden Grace earned exemption into the British Amateur Championship courtesy of his 2 shot victory over Jbe Kruger in the Boland Open. This he followed with a tied third place, 5 shots off the pace in the Western Province Amateur Stroke Play.
