Top 2 Southern Cape Golfers Tie at KJSOOM at Kingswood

Cameron Moralee wins count back and also shows that he is back!
The Southern Cape’s current number one and number two ranked junior golfers, Caylum Boon and Cameron Moralee, tied with scores of 73 in the KeNako Junior Series (KJS) Southern Cape Order of Merit tournament played at Kingswood on 8th June.  The KJSOOM tournaments are not decided by a play-off and Cameron Moralee won the first prize on a count out.

Cameron had got off to a slow start, turning in 3 over par 40, but he came back strongly on the tough back nine with a 2 under par 33 for his gross 73.  Caylum on the other hand got off to a flying start, scoring 5 under par 32 on the front nine before enduring a very tough back nine, which included a triple bogey 7 at the 14th hole where his tee shot ended in one of the many pot bunkers that make Kingswood such a challenging course and he failed to exit the bunker at his first attempt.  It is good to see Cameron back, not only playing but contending again after his recent setback and extended lay-off with his shoulder injury.  Cameron’s recent shoulder injury had literally happened overnight and related to an old shoulder injury that he had sustained a few years ago whilst still playing rugby at his previous school.

Another KeNako student, Eric Park from Korea, showed that he is starting to become a serious contender and featured in the prizes for the second consecutive SCJOOM tournament, winning the Best Nett prize in the A Division.  Eric had also started very well, turning in 4 under par 33, but on the back nine he experienced a few difficulties and apparently some bad luck to fall out of contention for the gross prize.  Eric ended up scoring 74.

Yet, another two KeNako students, Charnay Williams and young Devon Whitaker, tied for the gross prize in the B Division and Charnay won the count out.  It will not be long before Charnay moves up to compete in the A Division – she has become a very consistent performer.  Devon joined the academy program as a 13 year old at the start of the year and he is making steady progress.  He is as yet unable to reach some of the tough par 4’s at Kingswood in two shots but his strength is growing and we look forward to monitoring and reporting on his progress in the coming years.

Other prize winners included Franco Gericke winning the C Division and Hanco Rudolph winning the U13 Division, which is played off the Ladies tees, with a gross 79.  All in all it was another beautiful day in George.  The players had some wind to contend with but this is pretty much par for the course for golf in the Garden Route!  Thanks as always are due to Kingswood for their continued support of KeNako Academy and junior golf in the Southern Cape.
