One, two combo! Mellette does it again.

Mellette Hendrikse has won the KZN Senior Open. The Kwazulu Natal swing included two tournaments scheduled between the 4th and 8th of September.

The first was the KZN Senior Spring Classic hosted by the spectacular Durban Country Club. Mellette was relegated to second place by the eventual winner Morgan Phillips, a Maritzburg Golf Club resident, in what was loosely termed “testing” conditions.

The second tournament, the KZN Senior Open was hosted by Cotswold Downs Golf Club. Mellette was able to exact a swift revenge by beating Morgan Phillips, Kevin Curren and Rahme Ramon by two strokes.

He has improved his season’s record to 9 tournaments, 7 top 10 finishes and 4 wins. His ranking points with the SAGA is 81.72 with his nearest competitor on 66.50.
