KYLE DE BEER
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.
