VORSTER WINS UN­DER-15 CROWN IN BIRDIE FEST

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Amateur Scene -

Two fu­ture stars emerged at the Nomads SA Un­der-15 championship when Martin Vorster (Pin­na­cle Point) edged Casey Jarvis (State Mines) in a re­mark­able 54-hole David and Goliath duel at Koro Creek.

Vorster, who turned 15 later in Jan­uary, shot 67-66-69 (202) against the 68-66-69 (203) of 13-year-old Jarvis as they tore the Lim­popo course apart. Vorster, who is 1.85 me­tres tall and drives the ball 300 me­tres, had 14 birdies and two ea­gles, while 1.5-me­tre tall Jarvis made 15 birdies. Re­mark­ably, Jarvis only had two bo­geys.

Jarvis has al­ready tasted in­ter­na­tional suc­cess, hav­ing won the Boys 11-13 di­vi­sion at the IMG Ju­nior Golf Tour Florida Chal­lenge over 54 holes in the United States in De­cem­ber.

Third-placed Liam van Deven­ter (Benoni Lake) was 12 shots fur­ther back on 215 at Koro Creek, with Kieron van Wyk (Ruim­sig) fourth on 217.
