SA women golfers receive LET boost

Posted on June 11, 2012 by Ken

South African women’s golf has received a boost with the announcement that the South African Women’s Open will return to the Ladies European Tour (LET) schedule in July.

The likes of 2010 LET Order of Merit winner Lee-Anne Pace and Ashleigh Simon, a three-time SA Open champion and the winner of two LET events, will take on a strong international field at the Selborne Park Golf Club on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast from July 13-15.

Fellow LET campaigner Tandi Cunningham, who won the last South African Women’s Open in 2009, is the defending champion.

The organisers announced on Monday that there will be a field of 84 golfers, including 56 from the LET, who will be playing for 260 000 euro in prizemoney.

  • Thought of the Day

    1 Corinthians 3:3 - "For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?"

    One of my favourite U2 songs is a collaboration with Johnny Cash called The Wanderer, and it features the line "they say they want the kingdom, but they don't want God in it".
    Many people say they believe in God, but they don't experience his loving presence. They may be active in Christian work, but only if they have their way. If they cannot be leaders, they refuse to be involved.
    Because they refuse to allow God to fill their lives with his love, they remain weak and powerless.
    Spiritual maturity means developing a greater love for others.

    "When the love of Christ saturates you, immature attitudes such as pettiness, jealousy and strife are dissolved.
    "It is only when you have an intimate relationship with the Lord that you receive sufficient grace to rise above this immaturity and enjoy the solid food that the Holy Spirit gives you." - Solly Ozrovech, A Shelter From The Storm
