With 186 players in the field, it was always going to be well contested. After round 1 Kyle McClatchie from Ekurhuleni shot 65 and had a 1 shot lead over 3 players tied for second. In round 2 McClatchie overcame a triple bogey and a double bogey during his round to finish level for the day, leaving him 4 shots behind tournament leader James du Preez from Pretoria Country Club. However, a 64 in round 3 took McClatchie into a 1 shot lead ahead of du Preez, who had rounds of 66, 67 and 69 to leave him lying 2nd going into the final round. A birdie free final round, shooting 62 and ending with a birdie on the last hole was a fantastic way for McClatchie to end as an amateur, as this was his last amateur tournament before he turns professional.
The GNGU would like to thank all players for their participation and enthusiasm. We would also like to thank Waterkloof’s members, management and executive committee for giving up their course to host this prestigious event.
