Do­ing it for can­cer

The Rep - - SPORT - By Derek Helm

THE an­nual San­lam Can­cer Chal­lenge was held in sup­port of the fight against all forms of can­cer and the field of 61 golfers from Queen­stown par­tic­i­pated in a well run day.

The com­pe­ti­tion is held in var­i­ous dif­fer­ent hand­i­cap di­vi­sions to en­able more win­ners to have a chance to go through to the re­gional and na­tional com­pe­ti­tions. The A di­vi­sion was won by Mike Ed­kins with a good 38 points ahead of Colin Hart­ley (37) and An­dre Smith (37). The B di­vi­sion went to Ri­aan Coet­zer (42) in front of Brent Smit (37) and Keith Wood (36). Play­ers in the C di­vi­sion were led home by Tim Brit­tian (30) and Wayne Gold­schmidt. The lady golfers also had three di­vi­sions and Elaine Walker (30) was the leader in the A di­vi­sion ahead of Michelle Mitchell (30) and Ana Tag­gart (27). The B di­vi­sion for the ladies was trumped by Sanet Pieterse on a well played 36 points in front of Mare­lize Bekker on 30 points. Michelle Thompson got her maiden vic­tory in the C di­vi­sion.

Only four twoclubs were recorded on Satur­day with Siya Mdingi 5th, Jared Schar­neck 8th and Brent Smit get­ting two on the 11th and 12th holes. This week­end will see a bet­ter­ball Sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion played.

The Kwe­di­nis came back from a suc­cess­ful tour to the Natal South Coast and Cor Oosthuizen was “Top Gun”. At the wrong end of the leader­board, Jared de Bruyn and Morne Roodt en­sured that the steaks were done medium rare.
