Some glorious George weather greeted guests at the KeNako SA World Juniors on Sunday. Not all players and guests had arrived in George by Sunday morning, but guests from many countries of the world were in George and joined the Am-Am and the after golf festivities. For most of the junior players it was a first look at the Kingswood Golf Course and their relaxed practice round would have contributed enormously to their acclimatisation process to George. Some of the players from Europe were coming from freezing conditions and they were immediately exposed to the hot African sun so it must have been something of a shock to their systems!
Local businessmen Peter Moolman and Terry Dimatellis played with Csilla Rozsa, a young lady from Hungary and Samuel Schiff from Switzerland. They were runaway winners of the Fourball Alliance Competition, winning by 6 Stableford points with an excellent score of 95 points. Csilla had flown in from the USA on Saturday and she was understandably jet-lagged, but Samuel has been training at the KeNako Academy for over 2 weeks in preparation for the tournament and his excellent play reflected his first-rate preparation. It is interesting to note that whilst at KeNako Samuel has also been working with KeNako’s education experts to improve his English.
