MOSSEL BAY, Southern Cape (14 July 2013) – Cyril Botha recovered from a three-putt bogey at the first and went on to sign for a four-under-par 68 to win the A Division of the Louis Oosthuizen Tournament on the Glacier by Sanlam Junior Series at Mossel Bay Golf Club on Sunday.

The scratch golfer won by a single stroke over Arno Muller on a cold day at the home club of 2010 Open champion Oosthuizen.

“It’s my first win on the series so I’m really pleased about this,” said Botha, who after his opening bogey went on to make five birdies and no further drops.

The highlight of his round was the birdie on the par-four 14th, where Botha hit a three iron and then an eight iron to within seven feet and holed the putt.
