Conradie brothers’ double take


Bill Swailes with Estiaan and Ruan

Estiaan and Ruan Conradie (Wingate Park CC) have won the Randpark Open Foursomes trophy (the larger one) and the Central Gauteng Golf Union Open Foursomes trophy. The two events have been jointly presented for the past two years. The brothers shot rounds of 73 and 71 to win by one from the team of Donovan Pearse and Waylon Kukard from Ekurhuleni Golf Union.

Ruan and Estiaan were both named in the Inter-Provincial team to represent the GNGU at Fishriver Sun from 19 to 23 September. The two other GNGU pairs that were in the field of 32 were Andrew van der Knaap / Marco Loubser (T9th) and Phillip Kruse / Richard Joubert (T13th).

The result bodes well for the team who used the event to fine tune the foursomes pairings ahead of the IPT. They will have another opportunity to cement the pairings at this weekend’s GNGU Closed Foursomes to be played at Woodhill CC.
