Defending champ Nash wins Bridge title at The Wanderers

Defending champion Nash de Klerk recorded 6 birdies at The Wanderers Golf Club to win the Bridge Fund Managers Junior Series title on Sunday 3 November 2019.

A bogey at the 1st was not an ideal way to start but Nash, a member of Pecanwood Golf & Country Club,  bounced back immediately with a birdie at the 2nd followed by another at the 5th on his way to a 69 which was good enough for a two shot win over Christopher Bagnall of State Mines CC.

Carl Mwale of Eagle Canyon GC was in contention with 4 holes to play but he came unstuck on the 14th and 17th and fell back into a tie for third with Kian Rose of Royal Johannesburg and Kensington GC on level par 72.

Nash, who won in a play-off over Rorisang Nkosi at The Wanderers last season, has been a loyal supporter of the #BridgeJuniorSeries winning the first of his 3 Series titles at Silver Lakes in March 2018.

With his latest win, Nash qualifies for the Bridge Junior Series regional final, where he will compete for the ultimate prize – an all-expenses paid trip to the North and South Junior Championship at Pinehurst, USA in July 2020.

“It is wonderful to Nash qualify for the regional finals of the Bridge Junior Series for the third straight year,” said Paul Stewart, Chief Executive at Bridge Fund Managers. “Hopefully he can reproduce his form at the finals in April 2020 and win the trip to Pinehurst.”

Launched in 2017, the Bridge Junior Series is managed by the SA Golf Development Board and endorsed by GolfRSA. Open to boys and girls in the U13 and U19 divisions, the Series is played across 18 tournaments hosted by leading courses.
