Junior local golfers fly Ekurhuleni’s flag at SA’s

Teagan Lubbe.

They finished fifth and 18th respectively.

The two represented Ekurhuleni at the tournament, which was played over three competitive rounds of stroke play. They were also the runners-up for the best nett team competition.

Quizzed on her fifth placing, Haw commented: “It was kind of okay. I played two of the top girls; it was nerve-racking but I was quite impressed with myself. It was a surreal moment; the experience on its own was amazing!

“It means a lot; moving forward it shows that I have potential with my golf.”

Haw, who is currently lying 17th on the South African Junior Women’s Golf order of merit, was selected for the SA Women’s inter-provincial team in 2014 and was awarded her Ekurhuleni provincial colours. She’s since been selected for the provincial team every year and plans to better her craft.

“I enjoy playing the sport and I want to put a lot more practice in,” she added.

Lubbe has competed in golf tournaments countrywide and has represented Ekurhuleni girls and women’s golf teams on numerous occasions over the past five years.

She had the following to say about her performance and experience at the champs:

“It’s good but I would like it to be a bit better,” she commented about her final placing.

“To be placed top 20 is good for our union (Ekurhuleni).

“It was quite tough because there’s a lot of competition between the girls.”

Much like Haw, Lubbe is passionate about her golf and intends playing the game professionally through the Serengeti Golf Academy. – @SabeloBoksburg
