Inter-Provincial Triangular tournament

Six Paul Roos golfers participated in the annual Triangular Inter-Provincial golf tournament held on 9 May at the scenic Robertson Golf Club. The host union, Boland, Southern Cape and Western Province competed against each other in the various age groups. Due to Covid, the event this year was played as 9 hole individual matchplay (over 5 rounds).

For the 3rd successive year Western Province won the overall event and once again proved to be the strongest over the 4 age groups combined with the final accumulated scores being Western Province 134 vs Boland 118.5 vs Southern Cape 107.5.

In the U/15 age category Western Province’s Andries van der Vyver (Paul Roos Gymnasium) was impressive with a haul of 8 out of a potential 10 points.

The most competitive division, the U17 age group, was a cliff hanger with WP starting the final day two full points behind their opponents. The final putt on the 18th hole decided the outcome with Jack Buchanan, playing in the final pairing, cementing the win for WP. This after his fellow U/17 team mates, Jack Brugman (Paul Roos Gymnasium) and Matthew Lotz, had “pulled a rabbit out of the hat” by winning 4/4 and 3.5/4 of their respective matches on the final day. These 3 combined scored 11.5 out of a possible 12 points for Western Province on the final day – a truly remarkable performance!

Individual Triangular points results for Paul Roos golfers were as follows:

U/15: Andries van der Vyver – 8/10, Nicholas van der Vyver – 7/10
