THE eighth round of the Old Mutual Grand Prix was held last week and the pace is hotting up for this prestigious individual medal golf competition.
The monthly medal competition has been tight and now only four points separate the three leading golfers.
Duggie Rheeders (15), Johnny de Villiers (13) and Aunty Gay Wormald (11) are the players revving on the front of the grid with a number of players waiting in the wings for a chance to grab some glory.
There are only two more rounds to go and it is not impossible for a jalopy to shoot out of the pack and overtake the leaders. It is sure to be a tight race to the finish and the players will need to hit the ball straight and stay out of the rough.
The past weekend saw Moses Shasha take the winner’s laurels as he shot 74 gross/43 points and take 10 points on the order of merit. Second was Aubrey Ferreira with 40 points as he counted out Don (59 still) Schnehage also on 40 points. Lionel Cronje played well to score 39 points in front of Angela Oosthuizen and Colin Hartley as they made up the top six places.
The two-clubs were as plentiful as falling leaves and Michelle Mitchell 8th, Colin Hartley 8th, Jared Scharneck 8th, Siya Mdingi 8th, Andre Smith 16th and Job Gobizembe 16th all made their birdies.
This weekend is the always popular Rotary-sponsored day and it is sure to be a cracker.
The Rotarians have been hard at work preparing and every player will be assured of a great day’s golf in aid of charity. Join us for a good day of golf and camaraderie.
