Rupert Kaminski wins Silver Vase double
Central Gauteng junior Rupert Kaminski won the 2013 Silver Vase and Junior Silver Vase which was played over both courses at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club. The Parkview club champion started with a 67 over the tough East Course along with other CGGU junior Marco Steyn.
A great follow up afternoon round of 69 was good enough to win both titles by one shot over Steyn and Bryce McCabe.
Pictured here is Rupert with both Silver Vase and Junior Silver Vase trophies.
Gauteng North and Spacey win at International Teams
Maccauvlei Golf Club was once again the the host for the season ending International Teams event. This event follows the Harry Oppenheimer and is always an honour to play in.
This year the spoils went to Gauteng North B, who were all part of the victorious Premier IPT side who won at Rustenburg earlier this year.
The top individual for the event was Central Gauteng's Matthew Spacey who was the only player to be under par in every round and finished only one shot ahead of Russell Franz and Phiilip Kruse.Pictured here from left are: Hendrikus Stoop, Russell Franz, Kevin O'Hare (chairman Maccauvlei), Phillip Kruse and Teaghan Gauche.
Central Gauteng's Louis Taylor leading amateur at SA Open
CCJ member and CGGU IPT captain, Louis Taylor does not play too often with the pros, but when he does, he's shown quite capable of upstaging them.
Taylor was one of a handful of amateurs who enjoyed automatic exemption from the custodians of the South African Open Championship, the South African Golf Association, to play in the 103rd edition at Glendower.
After rounds of 71 and 70, he is tied for 40th on three-under-par and the only amateur left standing after the cut eliminated SA number one Christiaan Bezuidenhout, Zander Lombard, NJ Arnoldi and reigning Sanlam SA Amateur champion Thriston Lawrence.
Armandt wins Vaal Double
Paarl Golf Club's Armandt Scholtz won the "Vaal Double" when he won both the Vaal Amateur and Harry Oppenheimer Trophy at Maccauvlei Golf Club.
The Vaal Amateur title is awarded for the player with the lowest 36 hole score whilst the Harry Oppenheimer Trophy goes to the best score after 72 holes.
The Boland golfer achived the first half of the double by carding scores of 66 & 68 to be ahead by 2 shots from Gauteng North's Philip Kruse.
.Unfortunatley the weather had the final say as the event was reduced to 54 holes with Armandt carding a 3rd round 71 to clince the Harry Oppenheimer title by 3 shots over Kruse and Eduard van den Berg.
