Western Province player heads Junior Rankings
With Lara Weinstein joining the “senior” ranks, the jostle for the top spot on the WGSA Junior Player Rankings has begun in earnest. Cara Gorlei from Milnerton Golf Club now heads the rankings. She moved to the top with a total of 149 points after coming second in the Boland Junior Championship and 5th in the WP Junior Championship. Michaela Fletcher from Maritzburg Golf Club in KZN is in second place with 133.5 points after her win at the Boland Junior Championships, and hot on her heals on 131 is Devonvale Golf Club player Bianca Theron, the Western Province Junior Champion. Magda Kruger from Centurion Golf Club in Gauteng North, who has yet to kick off her local golfing year as she is participating in the Annika Invitational in the United States, is in 4th place. Kelly Erasmus from Durbanville Golf Club in Western Province, who ended 2012 in 7th position, has climbed to 5th after her 3rd place finish at the Western Province Junior Championships.
All eyes will be on the Gauteng North Junior Championships scheduled for the end of January and the Eastern Cape and Border Championships in February.
