Erwee and Kim in the pink as Randpark’s 2020 Club Champions

Equity Trader Erwee Botha’s shares continue to go through the roof. But in this instance we’re not talking the JSE, you understand. Rather, it’s his fast growing stature as a golfer at Randpark.
The former Central Gauteng provincial golfer has won the men’s Club Championships for what is believed to be a record sixth time following a gross round of 73 at Firethorn on Sunday and a 71 at Bushwillow on Saturday. That gave him a level-par 36-hole 144 aggregate …

WHEN Wilco Nienaber hits a golf ball, it stays hit. So, if you don’t follow professional golf too closely, who is Wilco Nienaber anyway? Well, he’s a tall, wiry 20-year-old South African from Bloemfontein who turned professional last year after winning the SA Amateur. In fact he won no less than 21 titles as an amateur.
