Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Amateur Scene -

EP & Bor­der Stroke­play, Fish River Sun Scores: 73-70-68 (211) Run­ner-up: Greg McKay 73-71-68 (212) How he did it: De Beer, 18, a first-year stu­dent at NMMU in Port Elizabeth, en­joyed his first ma­jor win, mak­ing 14 birdies for a 5-un­der to­tal. Ear­lier this year the PEGC mem­ber rep­re­sented SA Ju­niors in a tri­an­gu­lar against Scot­land and the SAGDB, halv­ing his sin­gles against 2016 SA Ama­teur cham­pion Craig Ross. No­table: Fish River was a stiff test, with five golfers un­der par for 54 holes. Third-placed Al­bert Ven­ter also had 14 birdies, but a quadru­ple-bo­gey 8 at No 10 in the sec­ond round cost him a pos­si­ble vic­tory.
