1958 - SA Open Championship

Played at Bloemfontein
Winner: A A Stewart *
Runner Up: A D Locke
Score: 281

Coming to Bloemfontein as defending SA Amateur champion A A Stewart went home as SA Open champion notwithstanding the presence of both Bobby Locke and Gary Player in the field. Stewart's score of 281 was enough to finish one shot ahead of Locke (282) and two shots ahead of Player (283). This was the first time that Locke had played and been beaten for the SA Open title. He was destined never to win again.
