Kistensamy claims Nomads North & South Junior Nomads event of the season. Now I can go back to the books, knowing I got the job done.” Kistensamy has been trending towards a big win throughout the season. He won two club championships – first at Umhlali Country Club and then at his home course – and racked up a handful of top five finishes on the local provincial circuit.

waZulu-Natal junior Kyle Kistensamy celebrated his first national success when he scored a runaway victory in the Nomads North and South Junior Championship at Pecanwood CC at the end of August. The 17-year-old Prince’s Grant golfer had set himself the target of winning on the national circuit this season, and he duly delivered on the final day. After a bogey start in the final round, he dropped two more shots on the third, but Kistensamy turned things around with seven birdies and an eagle on the par five 12th for a sizzling 66 to close out a six-shot victory on six-under 210. “I’m super stoked about this win,” said the Curro Mount Ridgemore matriculant. “I really had to dig deep after that start, but I pulled it back and went on the attack. It’s really cool to land the big one in the final

“The timing is perfect, really. My goal this season was to win one of the Nomads titles and now, with the final exams coming up, the pressure is off. I’m hoping for a good matric result, because I want to study a B.Com degree. “I’m looking at some colleges in the United States, but I might just stay at home and study through Varsity College. Either way, I’ll be playing a lot of golf so I can keep on improving my game.”
