Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO SPORT - Richard Springo­rum

RICHARDS Bay golfer Jac­ques Swartz found the ‘sweet’ spot on all of his clubs when com­pet­ing in the Satur­day Monthly Mug com­pe­ti­tion at the Richards Bay Coun­try Club over the week­end, which re­sulted in him tak­ing the A Di­vi­sion crown.

Swartz posted a num­ber of birdies and pars, card­ing a 66 nett and 75 gross.

Ro-Juan Hills stamped her mark in the women’s com­pe­ti­tion, end­ing as run­ner-up with a 67 nett and won the IPS sec­tion with 40 points.

Hills, who played with Gerry Gib­son, Kathy de Gasperi and Tracy van Zyl on Satur­day thor­oughly en­joyed the play­ing con­di­tions.

Tracy Coet­zer chipped her way to the women’s ti­tle when she carded a 66 nett, with Frank van Niek­erk (69 nett) and Ernest van Bal­le­gooyen (71 nett) tak­ing the men’s B and C di­vi­sions re­spec­tively.

Fo­cus will now shift to this week­end when club mem­bers com­pete in the Club Cham­pi­onships on Satur­day and Sun­day.
