All in all a great and interesting weekend for sports.
Unfortunately the Springboks lost against Australia in the Tri-nations. But the South African tennis players did a sterling job at dismissing of Denmark in the Davis Cup. Kaizer Chiefs did a great job of holding Manchester United to a draw in Cape Town, which is always an impressive result for us. If our National team can’t do it, at least on a club level we are performing!
Then the British Open has been taking place over the past few days. I love golf and this open have been fortunate enough to watch a few South Africans in the championship. One of whom is a friend of mine!
Here’s how they look at the time of writing this post:
T60 AIKEN, Thomas 18 RSA 75 71 82 68 296 +16
T37 ELS, Ernie 8 RSA 80 69 74 -1 +12
T27 FROST, David 12:05 RSA 75 73 73 Par +11
T15 GOOSEN, Retief 12:55 RSA 71 75 73 Par +9
T27 IMMELMAN, Trevor 12:05 RSA 74 74 73 Par +11
Goosen definitely performing the best so far out of the South African contenders but there is still some time to go and much golf to be played!
There’s also cricket going on between England and The Proteas but I’m really not too sure how that’s going, anyone have an update?
All in all, a sport-filled weekend that kept me very busy!
