12-year-old Amilka Bhana (CC Jo­han­nes­burg, right) fol­lowed up his SA U-13 ti­tle in Oc­to­ber last year by win­ning the SA U-15 crown at Gowrie Farm in the KZN Mid­lands, rounds of 72-70-71 edg­ing Jor­dan Du­miny (Pin­na­cle Point) and Carl Mwale (Ea­gle Canyon) by one shot. Mwale, from the Golf Devel­op­ment Board, led by one with two holes to play, but fin­ished bo­gey-bo­gey to Bhana’s two clos­ing pars. Bhana was sur­prised at his vic­tory. “It was my first out­ing at the U-15 champs,” he gushed. “My par­ents and I de­cided I would play to gain ex­pe­ri­ence. We are all a lit­tle stunned that I won.”
