Gentleman Jack Wins South African Amateur

Sensational 64 pips Grehan to the title

Jack Hume won all four of the boys provincial championships in 2010 but while he claimed the West of Ireland title in 2014, his CV was lacking a major international win until this week.

It was fitting, therefore, that the flawless, eight under par 64 to claim the South African Stroke Play Championship by a stroke from compatriot Stuart Grehan and South Africa’s Jason Smith was described by Lali Stander for the South African Golf Association as “one of the classiest performances of the week.”

A Walker Cup winner last year, the 22-year old from Naas Golf Club closed with a 65 to snatch third place in the Liberty Gauteng North Open, to give his rivals this week fair warning. 

He was very much an outsider for the title when he went into the final round six strokes adrift of Smith and Scotland’s Ewen Ferguson, he wasn’t quite done.

With the help of a faithful local caddie, he went out in 32, picked up a fifth birdie at the 13th and then birdied the last three holes to clinch a thrilling one stroke victory — the second by an Irishman in this event since Dunfanaghy’s Ciaran McMonagle won at East London Golf Club in 2000.
