▶ Teaghan Gauche and Matthew Spacey learned a harsh les­son rep­re­sent­ing South Africa in the bi­en­nial Spirit In­ter­na­tional teams event in Texas, when they were dis­qual­i­fied in the first round for sign­ing an in­cor­rect score­card in the bet­ter­ball. The DQ also af­fected the two SA women, Ivanna Samu and Kaleigh Telfer, in the over­all stand­ings, al­though they were still able to com­pete in the women’s cham­pi­onship.
