PwC Silver Salver 2015


Etienne Janse van Rensburg and President of the GNGU, Johan Struwig

Etienne Janse van Rensburg has added his name to the Silver Salver Trophy. He joins the likes of Hugh Baiocchi, Ernie Els and Retief Goosen in lifting this illustrious trophy.

The Akasia member has walked deep steps in the GNGU Junior set-up during 2015 averaging 71.75 on the Domestic Order of Merit. He also received recognition during the GNGU Junior awards dinner for: SA Boys u/19, most tournaments played u/19 and two or more tournament wins (gross).

He was also automatically selected (based on his position on the Domestic Order of Merrit) for the u/19 Inter-Provincial Tournament to be held late in December at Worcester Golf Club

Etienne carded superb rounds of 70 and 67 to end two clear of McLachlan and Sinclair. He was drawn in the dawn patrol spot teeing off first at 06h30.  Not feeling any scoreboard pressure he kept his fellow u/19 IPT team mates in the form of Keegan and Rosswell at bay who ended joint second on 139.

A special mention has to go to our main sponsor PricewaterhouseCoopers for their generous and continued support of the event. PwC has been sponsoring the event for a number of years and the tournament has become synonymous with the brand. This tournament would simply not be possible without their continued support.

James du Preez, for all your assistance and unwavering support to the Gauteng North Golf Union please accept our sincerest gratitude.
