Johnston wins the first SA Mid-Amateur Stroke Play Championship
Cameron Johnston continued his fine run of form when he won the inaugural SA Mid-Amateur Stroke Play Championship at De Zalze Golf Club in Stellenbosch on Sunday.
This Johnston’s fourth win in just over a month after capturing the Cape Province Amateur, the Western Province Amateur Stroke Play and the Western Province Mid-Amateur Stroke Play in quick succession.
Conditions at De Zalze were tough for scoring after heavy rain on Wednesday saw suspension of play during the first round. The next three rounds however were played in calm but cool conditions but scoring was tough as the course play very long because of the wet conditions and the ball not travelling through the heavy air.
Johnston finished on a score of 287 (1 under) par with solid rounds of 71-69-73-74. Stafie Barnard from Southern Cape finished second on 292 followed by Andrew Mackie (WP)and Ramon Rahme (Ekurhuleni) tied on 295.
