ALBERT VENTER Eastern Province Open, PE Golf Club SCORES: 74-71-63 (208) RUNNER-UP: Jason Viljoen 69-74-67 (210) HOW HE DID IT: A course record 63 in the final round saw the 19-year-old from Centurion overturn a six-shot deficit to score his maiden tournament win. NOTABLE: Venter’s nine-birdie final round broke the PE Golf Club course record by one. It was set by Frenchman Romain Langasque in the third round of the SA Strokeplay in February. DYLAN MOSTERT Central Gauteng Open, Royal J&K (East) SCORES: 71-66-68-71 (276) RUNNERS-UP: Marco Steyn, Cameron Moralee, Philip Kruse, Ruan Conradie (277) HOW HE DID IT: The 17-year-old State Mines member was the only player to break par in all four rounds. He birdied the 72nd hole to edge out four players by one shot for his first tournament win. NOTABLE: Marco Steyn produced arguably the round of the year with a bogey-free 63 in round two over Royal Johannesburg & Kensington’s famed East course. PHILIP KRUSE Harry Oppenheimer Trophy, Maccauvlei SCORES: 67-68-65-72 (272) RUNNER-UP: Herman Loubser 69-71-69-68 (277) HOW HE DID IT: The 20-year-old hadn’t won since the 2011 EP/ Border Strokeplay, but after some timely advice from George Coetzee (see page 38), the Woodhill member romped to a five-shot victory. NOTABLE: Kruse loves Maccauvlei. He was T-5 and second in the last two Oppenheimer Trophies, and second in the 2013 Teams Championship.
