WGSA announces team to Annika Invitational

WGSA announced this week that top ranked juniors Lara Weinstein and Izel Pieters will represent South Africa at the third Annika Invitational tournament to be played at the Reunion Resort, Independence (Watson) course, Reunion, Florida USA from 18 to 21 February 2011. The manager is WGSA President Erica Lefson.

The Annika Invitational is an event organised by the American Junior Golf Association and entry is by invitation only. All participants are required to join the AJGA and abide by its strict rules and code of conduct. The 54-hole tournament will be preceded by a banquet on Friday 18 February.

No caddies or motorised carts are allowed and this year the AJGA Cares for the Course programme will give all players a small sand bottle prior to each round to fill divots on the course. In addition, a Care for the Course Party will take place directly following the second round for players to care for the practice facilities.

In preparation for the event, Izel & Lara will be included in the Development of Sport and Recreation sponsored training weekend on the 21st, 22nd & 23rd January, including playing in the Gauteng North Junior Championships on 23rd.
