Bill Mallett from Claremont showed a spirited display of skill at the Cape Town regional qualifier of the 21st World Amateur Golfers Championship and secured his place in the South African final.

The third and final round of the regional qualifier was filled with excitement as amateur golfers prepared for a competitive time at the Mowbray Golf Club.

Mallett made his mark on the day by finishing in a well-deserved second place in the 16-20 handicap group on an impressive 75 nett score.

His sights will now be set on the national final on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast this week.

The event promises to be an invigorating two-day challenge as all the regional winners from Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town come together to battle it out for ultimate glory.

The competition will be fierce, as each golfer will be looking to claim that coveted Team SA blazer and win an all expenses paid trip to the 21st World final in Turkey next month.

“Golfers arrived at the Cape Town qualifier fired-up for the final round in the elimination process for this year’s Team SA selection. This is a fantastic opportunity for amateur golfers to showcase their talent in the world’s largest amateur golf tournament. We are looking forward to the SA national final to see who will be representing South Africa as the defending champion at the World final from 27 November to 5 December,” says Arthur Mzimela of World Golf Events SA and Team SA captain.
