South Africa beat India in inaugural Golf Test Series


Kolkata: South Africa crushed hosts India 11.5 to 4.5 in the inaugural Golf Test Series which was held at the Royal Calcutta Golf Club.

The score for today stood at 6-2, but the three matches were extremely close affairs and saw South Africa eventually prevailing over India only in the final hole.

An elated team manager Jock Wellington said,”Our boys have played really well, the course is set up quite long which I think is not suitable for the Indian seniors.”

Playing immaculate golf, Gerlou Roux of the South African team scored 5-under in 12 holes, and was the ‘Player of the Day’.

For the Indian team, Simarjeet Singh stood tall winning all his matches, scoring 3 out of the 4.5 points that the Indians garnered during the tournament.

This Test Series is the commencement of an annual reciprocal partnership between the IGU and South Africa Golf Association.
