KZN comes tops in schools golf

2013-10-01 00:00

THE future of golf in this country looks enormously promising, judging by the calibre of play at last week’s SA Schools Golf Tournament, which was held in Durban.

In the team event, KZN A beat defending champions Gauteng Noord by 87 shots after four rounds.

Kearsney College’s James Kennedy (KZN A), who won the KZN Schools championships at Durban Country Club with a final-round 65, led from the first round, taking a slim lead of one stroke into the final round, with Anu Gounden (KZN A) from Phoenix hot on his heels.

Greg McKay (KZN A), also from Kearsney, had an incredible last round, going four under par in the final six holes, which included an eagle on the 18th from off the green to shoot 67 and beat team-mate James Kennedy by one shot. Greg’s final score was three over par for the four rounds of golf.

In the team event, KZN A played superb golf in their own back yard to beat Gauteng Noord, who have won the competition for the past seven years. The boys played 36 holes at Beachwood last Thursday and 36 holes at Durban Country Club last Friday. KZN B won a very credible third place ahead of the other eight teams. The SA Schools team was announced at the prize giving, with the following players awarded SA colours: Greg McKay (KZN A), James Kennedy (KZN A), Anu Gounden (KZN A), E. Nel (Gauteng Noord), J.P. Cooper (Gauteng Noord), D. Kok (Gauteng Noord), M. Saulez (KZN A) and L. Mayo (KZN B).
