Samu claims Pam Golding WP Properties Stroke Play
Gauteng’s Ivanna Samu denied Western Province number one, Ji Sun Kang, a home victory when she cruised to victory in the Pam Golding Properties WGWP Stroke Play Championship on Monday.
The 15-year-old junior from Ruimsig was consistency personified at Somerset West Golf Club as she reeled in the exact number of birdies to counter her bogeys for a pair of 72s.
Samu’s winning score of even-par 144 handed her a one shot victory over Kang, who opened with a 75 but dipped two shots under par for a much improved 70 in round two.
Meanwhile Eastern Province Stroke Play and Match Play champions, Michaela Fletcher and Magda Kruger, shared third on 146.
Fletcher carded rounds of 74 and 72 and Kruger returned two 73s.
Mae Cornforth, who claimed the North West Championship a fortnight ago, took fifth on her own with rounds of 74 and 73.
