Hilton College Golfer astounds at SA Amateur Champs
Chris Woollam has provided us with a wonderful sporting highlight and possibly our performance of the year. This

Chris Woollam

young man, who has worked exceptionally hard at his sport, golf, produced two incredible rounds (65 and 64) at the SA Amateur Championships at the Humewood Golf Course on Sunday and Monday.

In so doing he beat an international field of men to win the stroke play title and, with it, one of the oldest trophies in SA golf, the Proudfoot Trophy. Having been tied, at the end of regulation play, at 15 under par with Briton and UK Amateur Champion, Dan Brown, he held his nerve throughout the sudden-death play-off and on the 4th play-off hole he struck his approach to within a foot of the pin to leave him with a simple putt for the victory. He must be one of the youngest players to have won a trophy of this importance. Well Done Chris – you have made Hilton College so proud!
