Andre Nel and Jade Buitendag Joint Leaders at Northern Amateur Open

Andre Nel and Jade Buitendag both got off to excellent starts in the 72 hole Northern Amateur Open being played at Randpark Golf Club.  Andre and Jade both scored 5 under par 67’s in the first round played on Sunday.  Andre didn’t start well, dropping a shot at the par 5 first hole, but he played solid golf thereafter with 6 birdies and no further dropped shots.  The highlight of Jade’s round was an eagle 2 at the par 4 fifth hole.  He also had 4 birdies and dropped his only shot of the day at the par 3 eighth hole.  It is fantastic to see 2 KeNako students sharing the lead at a major amateur tournament.  We wish both Andre and Jade good golf for the rest of the week!
