Young golfer Gabrielle Venter claims victory at Standard Bank Ladies Open

Posted : 16 March 2024

At just 19 years old, Gabrielle Venter showcased her immense talent and composure by clinching victory at the Standard Bank Ladies Open in a thrilling showdown against experienced golfer Kylie Henry at Royal Cape Golf Club. Venter's triumph comes on the heels of promising performances earlier in the season on the Sunshine Ladies Tour, where she secured fifth place in the Dimension Data Ladies Pro-Am and second place in the SuperSport Ladies Challenge.


With a superb four-under 70, Venter finished the tournament at nine-under-par, overtaking the seasoned Henry, a two-time Ladies European Tour winner, who led after the first two rounds but faltered with a level-par 74 on the final day, settling at eight-under. Despite her remarkable achievement, Venter admitted she didn't anticipate her maiden professional win until she reached the 18th green, emphasizing her focus on her own game rather than the scoreboard throughout the competition.


The final day witnessed an exceptional battle between Venter and Henry, characterized by lead changes and intense competition. Despite facing challenges on the back nine, Venter displayed remarkable resilience and showcased her prowess on the greens, securing crucial putts to clinch victory.


Her victory not only propels her into contention for the Investec Order of Merit but also instills confidence as she prepares for upcoming co-sanctioned events such as the SA Open and the Joburg Open, highlighting the Sunshine Ladies Tour as a valuable platform for aspiring golfers to compete and excel on an international stage.
