Jade Buitendag 11th in SA Strokeplay – now ranked No.7 in South Africa

Jade Buitendag had yet another good finish at the SA Strokeplay tournament played last week at Port Elizabeth GolfClub when he finished 11th.  Jade started poorly with a round of 75 in good conditions but he then showed his ability by shooting rounds of 69 and 66 to bring himself back into the tournament.  In the final round Jade played some solid golf, unfortunately marred by a triple bogey 6 at the par 3 5th hole.  Jade has been steadliy climbing up the South African rankings, having been ranked No.73 in the country when he joined KeNako Academy at the beginning of 2014.  He is now No.8 in South Africa, impressive improvement!
