Glenwood House learner, Norman Seton, played exceptional golf at the recent Ernie Els Primary School Championships. Norman scored 73 and 72 in his two rounds to end second to Luke Mayo from Umhlanga.
76 players representing 19 schools, each the winner of their regional competition, participated in the prestigious event.
Norman, who had a top 10 position representing Knysna Primary at the 2011 competition at Ernie Els Copper Leaf in Gauteng, played consistently good golf throughout the competition.
The highlight of the day was his approach to the par 3 11th which, under the scrutiny of the Supergolf cameras, struck the flag.
Norman had a special word of thanks to his coach Adam McKinlay, team manager Roelof Roelofsze and to Leigh Fish at The Golfer's Club who provided the perfect replacement for a damaged putter on the day before the championship.
Norman played in the final 4 ball with the top ranked players of the first 4 schools after the opening round.
Norman and Luke both shot an even par 72 with Alex Pienaar (Anton van Wouw) and Alex Heidl (Dainfern) making up the 4 ball.
