Monday, 15 July 2019

We want wish women for women’s day next Wed, 9th August!

It is all about the putting, and Durbanville’s Adrian Ford did just that. Ford putted his way to victory at the Premier Amateur Tour – Strand Open held on Sunday.

At the halfway mark, Adrian was lying in sixth position on two-under-par 70, with the joint leaders, Stellenbosch’s MJ Steyn and Bellville’s Gerlou Roux on four-under-par 68.

However, Ford had clearly figured out the greens in the morning round, and holed out for eight birdies in the afternoon to finish two shots clear 70-65 (135) from MJ Steyn.

This is the second time Ford has signed for an afternoon round of 65. Both Ford and Elmo Barnard carded 65s at the PAT – Parow Open held in May.

With two consistent rounds of 68-69 (137) MJ Steyn could only manage to finish is second position.

Gerlou Roux got off to a flyer in his second round with three birdies in four holes, but lost ground after a triple bogey on the 6th and a further three double drops to finish with 68-78 (144).

Strand’s, Deon Germishuys was third on four-under-par 69-71 (140) - the current WP Junior Strokeplay & Matchplay champion, Francois Cilliers finished T16 on four-over-par total148 (78-70).

Most Advice

Barbara Nicklaus discovered that is not easy being the wife of The Golden Bear, during the Tour Wife’s Championship.

At the end of the 9-hole event, her ears were ringing.

She didn't win anything but her overly helpful husband/caddy won the "Most Advice" award.

He told her 165 things in those nine holes.

Please Remember To Fill YOUR Divots & Repair YOUR Pitch Marks!
There’s no question that for a beginner,
golf can be an intimidating game, especially 400
yards out from the hole.

But there is so much fun to be had from just
40 yards. No one said you have to start at 400 yards.

Most women who take up the game discover fun for life,
and friends for life.
