North West Open, Lost City Scores: 64-68-69 (201) Runner-up: Clayton Mansfield 66-71-65 (202)
How he did it: It was a first win of the year for Serengeti’s McClatchie, who had four in 2016. He had an exciting final-round duel with Durban CC’s Mansfield, who closed with 65 and had 19 birdies to McClatchie’s 18 over the three rounds.
Notable: McClatchie finished 10 clear of third-placed Matt Saulez. Lost City yielded many birdies and eagles – 13 at No 18, but there were also several double-figure holes. N J van der Walt (Hartswater) recovered from a 10 at the seventh in the first round to finish T-14.
