SA Open inspires school children



The success of South African golf has always been the ability of one generation to inspire the next. At the South African Open on Tuesday, learners from two Ekurhuleni schools met with a few Sunshine Tour stars as part of the championship’s development drive in the Ekurhuleni region.

A total of 54 learners from the Sedibeng Primary School in Thembisa and Laerskool Birchleigh in Kempton Park were given an inside look at the running of a major professional golf tournament and toured the facilities, including the media centre, clubhouse, putting green, driving range, and they were given a glimpse of the prestigious SA Open trophy.

The learners also met with Titleist staff players Tyrone Mordt, Justin Harding and Charl Coetzee, as well as Bulls rugby star and Titleist brand ambassador Werner Kruger.

“It was amazing just to be able to share some experiences with these kids. Success in this game is all about having positive role models. We all had them, and hopefully now these kids have some good role models as well,” said Mordt.
