Ivanna Samu, Kaleigh Telfer and Woo-Ju Son lived up to their star billing when they sealed back-to-back success for Gauteng in the Swiss Teams Trophy in the 72-Hole Teams Championship on Wednesday.

 

It was Kajal Mistry (70) and Chiara Contomathios (73) from the B-team that got Gauteng’s title defence underway at Middelburg Country Club on Monday, while the country’s top ranked seniors Samu and Telfer from Gauteng A opened with 149 to finish six shots off the pace.

But Samu and number one ranked junior Son stepped it up in round two with a total of 145 to grab a share of the lead at 294 with Gauteng North A.

Samu and Telfer gained control for Gauteng A with a third round 141. Poised in pole position at 435 with a nine stroke lead over Gauteng North A, the pair combined once again for a final round 146 to lock down a 13 stroke victory for Gauteng A on 581.

Meanwhile Mistry and Contomathios produced further rounds of 152, 153 and 146 to claim a one-two finish for Gauteng for a second year running.

Gauteng North A took third on 596, while Border finished a credible fourth on 602 in their Swiss Team Trophy debut.

Not surprisingly, Samu and Telfer also dominated the Individual Competition on the last day.

Samu overhauled Ekurhuleni’s Casandra Hall with birdies at four and nine to take the early lead, while Telfer reeled in birdies at two, three, six and seven to get within striking distance, but catastrophe struck after the turn.

Samu dropped shots at 10, 11 and 12 and suffered a triple bogey at the par three 13th, while Telfer also bogeyed the first three holes and dropped another shot at 16. Samu rallied with back-to-back birdies at 16 and 17 and parred the final hole for a 74. She successfully defended the title she shared with Eleonora Galletti in last year’s edition, while Telfer signed for a 72 to share the runner-up spot with Mistry, who closed with a 71.
