CAPE JUNIORS SHINE
Western Province juniors Deon Germishuys and Freddie Spencer, both 17, won the 54-hole Nomads tournaments. Spencer, from Steenberg in Cape Town, surprised the country’s top juniors by outplaying them in the first tournament of the year, the Nomads Inland at Benoni CC. Rounds of 74-70-70 with 11 birdies gave him a two-shot win over Jayden Schaper and Brandon Geere, with Christo Lamprecht and Luke Mayo three shots back in fourth. Spencer spent four months in America at the end of 2016 attending the Gary Gilchrist Academy in Orlando.
Germishuys, from Strand, had 17 birdies at a windy Royal Durban to win the Nomads Coastal by seven from fellow WP junior Samuel Simpson (Bellville) on nine-under 210, having a 67 in the first round.
