Cape Town - Veteran former golfer Tony Johnstone has expressed his shock at the news of death of Wayne Westner.
According to police reports, Westner took his own life after a hostage drama involving his wife at his home on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast on Wednesday morning.

So shocked to hear of the death of Wayne Westner, double former winner of SA Open and winner of Dubai Desert Classic. RIP Westy, Johnstone wrote.
