Pam Golding's grandson leads SA’s hockey team at the Commonwealth Games
- The late Pam Golding's grandson, Tim Drummond, captains the South African men's hockey team.
- He scored a goal in the team's first match at the Commonwealth Games.
- Off the field, Drummond is a pilot.
Three days after his grandmother Pam Golding passed away, Tim Drummond, who captains the South African men's hockey team, scored a goal in the Commonwealth Games against Scotland.
In a nail-biting thriller of a match, Drummond took to the field at the Commonwealth Games in Australia's Gold Cost.
Drummond scored the team’s second goal of the match, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to overcome Scotland (rank 23rd). South Africa (rank 15th) lost 4-2.
The men face even tougher opposition in their pool with Australia (rank 1st), New Zealand (rank 9th) and Canada (rank 11th) still to play.
Drummond, a pilot by profession, started playing hockey when he was just five years old. He matriculated from Hilton College in 2006.
