Mail received after KeNako SA World Juniors 2013
I had the good fortune of being able to watch my son Sean compete in the KeNako World Junior Champs last week. I would like to bring your attention to a few things that I saw and experienced during my stay. I have been a professional golfer for 27 years and 17 of those playing the SA and Asian tours. The organization and set up of your event was reminiscent of a professional tournament. From the first day that your team collected the players from the airport to the transport from the hotel to the course every day was outstanding. I was also lucky enough to be at the course to watch some golf and all I can say is "wow" from the live scoring to leader boards that the last few groups had was great; just another bit of attention to detail that only a pro event would have. This is the only amateur event I have ever been to that looks, feels and runs like a pro event . The boys and girls got their first taste of what it would feel like to be a pro. Having TV coverage as well and being able to see themselves on Supersport was fantastic and exciting for them. To top it all off the prize giving and dinner function was out of this world. Congratulations to both of you and your team and especially Sally for all the many hours of hard work that was dedicated to making your event a very special one. I wish you all the best for the future and I know your tournament will grow to be one of the best junior tournaments in the world if it is not there already.
