Somerset West golfer wins on Glacier Series



Somerset West junior golfer Konrad Luc Zeelie booked his place in the National Final of the 2013 Glacier by Sanlam Junior Series when he won the A Division of the Jean Hugo Tournament at Stellenbosch Golf Club last Sunday.

The 16-year-old Zeelie produced a solid round of 71 to win by a single stroke in the third tournament on this year’s series.

The Glacier Junior Series is the country’s premier junior golf series featuring 25 tournaments played around the country, with the winners in each of the A, B and C Divisions qualifying for the National Final later this year. The winner here qualifies for an all-expenses paid trip to compete against some of the world’s top juniors in the Orange Bowl Junior Invitational in America.

Zeelie beat off the challenge of HP van der Merwe, one of Boland golf’s top juniors, and another young star in Deniz Palanduz to claim his place in the National Final. It’s the second time Zeelie has qualified for the National Final on this series, the last being in 2010.
