Kim Williams wins by 10 strokes in icy conditions
South Africa’s top-ranked Kim Williams claimed the Gauteng North Women’s 54 hole stroke play championship by a massive 10 shots after carding a brilliant three-under 69 in what can only be described as miserable conditions at Centurion County Club yesterday.
Team-mates Henriette Frylinck and Gina Switala topped the leader-board after round one, but Kim took control in round two to lead by four strokes from Nobuhle Dlamini and subsequently walked away with the trophy after her final round of 69.
Conditions deteriorated during the tournament and the photos below seem to indicate that the players were competing in winter snow sports rather than a golf championship! The only sub-par rounds were returned in round three by Williams (69) and Bertine Strauss, Izel Pieters and Iliska Verwey – all carding 71.
The best overall net was won by Gauteng’s 12-year old Eleonora Galletti on 222 (72, 75, 75) and Valda Ford, also from Gauteng, won the B Division on 271 (90-, 90, 91) while Eastern Cape’s Jamie-Lee Daniels was runner-up on 276 (97, 88, 91).
Best nett in Round 1 was won by Eastern Cape’s Ilse Brits, Round 2 by local junior, Catherine Lau and Round 3, Mpumalanga’s Izel Pieters.
