The WGSA rankings for both senior and junior players has just been released and we are so proud of our Gauteng golfers. Ivanna Samu is number one in South Africa on both the junior and senior rankings. Seven of our junior golfers are in the South African Top 10, I think is the first time ever that we have had so many girls in the Top 10. Kaleigh Telfer is number two, Woo-Ju Son is number three, Shawnelle De Lange is number five, Eleonora Galletti number six, Natahsa Carlsson is number seven and Chiara Contomathios is number eight.
In the senior rankings we have five in the Top 10. As I mentioned earlier, Ivanna is number one, Shawnelle De Lange is number six, Kaliegh Telfer is number seven, Eleonora Galletti number 9 and Lara Weinstein number ten.
