Thomson bags UCT Masters

14 April 2015

Medical gastroenterologist Professor Sandie Thomson (left in picture) won the 25th UCT Master's title at the Royal Cape Golf Club on Sunday 12 April.

Every year retired and current UCT staff vie for the honour of winning Ron's Mug and an opportunity to don the "vile green jacket".

Ron's Mug is a pewter mug from the country club in Dar es Salaam, donated by former staffer Ron Allen who initiated and sponsored the competition in 1991. Professor Jeremy Midgley (biological sciences) added the "vile green jacket" when he won the title in 2007.

Competing for Kate's Jug were spouses, family members and friends associated with UCT. The jug was donated by registrar Hugh Amoore and named after his wife, Kate Brown.

Brown had won the competition 11 times but this year was delighted to present Kate's Jug to Keith Roman (right in picture), husband of the former Dean of Health Sciences, Marian Jacobs.
