MARCO STEYN

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Amateur Scene -

Prince’s Grant In­vi­ta­tional Scores: 72-71-73-70 (286) Run­ner-up: Luke Mayo 74-68-74-74 (290) How he did it: Steyn ended a lengthy win­ning drought – since the 2016 Free State Open (he also won the 2014 North­ern Open) – by cap­tur­ing this pres­tige ti­tle dur­ing a windy week on the KZN North Coast. The 19-year-old Mod­der­fontein player is soon to be­gin a col­lege schol­ar­ship at Wake For­est in North Carolina. No­table: Mayo (Mount Edge­combe), 18, achieved his best tour­na­ment fin­ish, hang­ing on to Steyn un­til the fi­nal round. He was five shots ahead of third­placed Martin Vorster (Pin­na­cle Point).
