The stars aligned for Brandon Stone at Royal Cape Golf Club where he won his first professional event at the Lion of Africa Cape Town Open.

The 22-year-old and his father, Kevin, both played in the R1,2-million tournament and made the cut. His dad was the first to congratulate him, which was a superb moment for the youngster.

“I couldn’t ask for anything more. To not only play in the event with him, but to win it and share a hug with him after walking off the 18th is story book. It’s definitely something I’ll remember for the rest of my life,” said Stone Jnr, who earned his European Tour card via the Challenge Tour two weeks earlier.
