Yaaseen wins Clovelly Junior Open

The 2012 Clovelly Junior Open played on the 4th of October produced a RAGA winner; Yaaseen Manuel. The grade 10 student, who played in the B division, scored a gross 79, net 64 to cruise to a 4 shot victory.

Yaaseen, who for the past few months went through a rough patch, has been quietly practicing in his spare time. The famous words of the great Gary Player “The more I practice the luckier I get” seem to hold some truth. With a combination of skills and determination, Yaaseen is proof that positive results will come in time. Well played Yaaseen!
