The ‘littlies’ shine at SA Girls.

14-year old Boland star Bianca Theron leads the Nomads SA Girls’ Championship by two strokes from Western Province’s Kelly Erasmus. Bianca carded another 74 to retain the lead on 148 while Lara Weinstein, co-overnight leader, returned a disappointing 79 to fall back to seventh position.

One stroke back from Bianca, and tied in third position are Ji Sun Kang (Western Province) and Izel Pieters (Mpumalaga).

KZN’s Michaela Fletcher returned the low score of the day – 73 – to move to tied fifth with another 14-year old, Carrie Park from Gauteng North.

The 10 – 18 Division is headed by 10-year old Catherine Lau who carded a 79 today to finish on 162, three strokes ahead of over-night leader Zanele Mazibuko. Another 10-year old, Woo Ju Son, playing in the A Division returned a 77 and is in 14th position in the Championship Division.

The D Division provided the most comment and ‘how cute’ utterances when nine-year old Caitlyn MacNab headed the D Stableford Division on 36 points. Only ‘two bricks and tickey high’, Caitlin, playing off a 26 handicap, proved that golf is an easy game as long as you start young and have only positive thoughts.

The C Stableford Division is headed by two Rustenburg Golf Club juniors, Jhanelle Strydom and Jenny Botha, both on 41 points. Jacolynne Rabe is two back on 39 and another stroke back is 10-year old Kaiyuree Moodley, off a 23 handicap and also ‘two bricks and tickey high’, on 38.

The weather was a little kinder today, although the early players teed off in thick frost and found difficulty in locating their wayward white golf balls – keeping rules officials Molly Whitaker and Sally Greasley on the hop.

Final rounds will be played tomorrow, Tuesday and players head home after breakfast on Wednesday morning after another fabulous Nomads SA Girls Championship.
