Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Amateur Scene -

Western Prov­ince Stroke­play, West­lake GC Scores: 71-67-69 (207) Run­ner-up: Marco Steyn (70-71-68) How he did it: The 20-year-old Cen­tu­rion mem­ber was a sur­prise win­ner. Only once in the past year had Frade fin­ished in the top 40 at a tour­na­ment. Trail­ing 36-hole leader Matt Saulez by two shots go­ing into the fi­nal 9 holes, he came home in 34 to the 39 by Saulez, who is still seek­ing his first win. It was his fourth con­sec­u­tive top-3 fin­ish. No­table: Ju­nior Sa­muel Simp­son, 14, from Bel­lville, was the best WP player (74-69-68), tied fifth with 14 birdies.
