On the road to the final there was some spectacular golf that took place over the 12 Regional Qualifying Events. Over 95 000 amateur golfers, across 808 tournaments worldwide, participated this year in the qualifying events for the right to represent their country. The winners of the South African series will be putting on their game-face at the national final, held at Zimbali Golf Club, to compete for the ultimate prize of representing their country in Los Angeles at the World Final.
VPAR, the global leader of live golf scoring, covered all the excitement throughout the series allowing players to follow a real-time leaderboard on handheld scorepads setting up a nail biting finale for those on the course, spectators in the clubhouse and supporters live online.
No more so was this evident than at the Country Club Johannesburg, where all those watching the leaderboards shared the excitement of a hole-in-one by Mr Pao-Yi Fang. His ace on the 4th hole secured him an Audi A3 as well as 5 points which shot him (and partner) to the top of the leaderboard.
Neville Rowe and Phillip Powell, who played off an 11 handicap, also qualified out of Steenberg in the Cape with help from VPAR. With 5 holes to play Neville and Phillip were cruising and heading for an additional 15 points to close their round. However a one pointer on their penultimate hole slowed them down. After checking the live leaderboard on their scorepad, they knew they only needed 3 points on the 18th to go top of leaderboard. A par on the last secured a winning 42 points and a 1 point victory.
VPAR Live Golf Scoring will once again be available at the National Final - everyone who wants to follow their husband, friend or colleague can simply do so by visiting www.facebook.com/VPARsouthafrica and clicking on the leaderboard link.
Good luck to all the players.
