The rankings take all the results up to date, including the latest two championships being the Sedibeng Regional Championships (hosted by North West University - Vaal) and the Capricorn Regional Championships (hosted by HTS Tom Naudé).
In such rankings, Mxolisi Lukhele (Amplified Rebellion, Vereeniging), while remaining in second place has closed the gap between himself and top ranked player Gawie Fick (Fakkel School, Sasolburg).
After Fezile Dabi in July 2017, Gawie Fick was ranked in first place with 364 points with Mxolisi Lukhele being ranked in second place on 226.1 points - a difference of 137.9 points.
However, the difference between the two athletes has now been reduced to only 44.3 points.
All eyes will be focused on the next championship in which these two giants participants compete.
Who will win? Will Gawie maintain his position in the rankings, or will Mxolisi snatch the position?
Only time will tell.
Another interesting development is just how quickly Sekele Komape (HTS Tom Naudé) has shot up in the rankings. From being unseeded prior to MSSA's Capricorn Championships, Sekele finds himself ranked as the 7th best player in South Africa.
Local experts predict that Sekele could well find himself ranked in the top 5 of the country after the upcoming 6th Polokwane Championships.
