Jason Smith in Eisenhower Trophy team

Jason Smith has been selected to represent South Africa in Japan during the World Amateur Team Championships. The Championships are contested every second year and this year’s edition is scheduled between 9 – 14 September. The three member team is completed by Gauteng North’s Zander Lombard and Gerlou Roux who hails from the Western Province.

Smith has had a sterling year on the domestic amateur tournament scene. He made top 10 finishes in two match-play tournaments (KZN and WP). He had 6 top 10 finishes in stroke play tournaments of which 5 were top 5 finishes. He also won the South African Stroke Play championship on route to becoming the number 4 ranked amateur in the country.

This will mark the third occasion this season that he wil represent South Africa as an amateur golfer.

We wish him and the rest of the team the best of luck.
