KYLE MCCLATCHIE

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Amateur Scene -

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.
