– breaks Mohamad’s record
The competitiveness at the Lusignan Golf Course continues to be an amazing spectacle. Youthful Joaan Deo, second in the Female category of the Crown Mining tournament of June 7th, winner of the Scotiabank tournament of June 14th, and overall champion of the well-contested LGC Stableford system Club Tournament of June 21st, on last Saturday, August 2nd, emerged overall champion again, this time in the third Vish Trading sponsored Open Medal-play 1‘Golf Tournament.
In the process she bettered Club President David Mohamad’s record of the previous week – Sat, July 26th- by returning a net 62 off of a handicap 21, whereas he had returned a net 62 off of a handicap 23.
Joaan elatedly stated, “I really am improving – gross of 89, 89, 84 and today my best gross ever of 83 – even better than when I won the Club Tournament a few weeks ago! And despite coming out of the wet sand bunker on 4 occasions I was able to sink at least 3 putts over 20 feet! I had a really good game.” Joaan hopes to move her handicap to single digits by the end of this Club year! The 20 minutes rain interruption earlier on seemed to work well as playing out of the dry sand bunker is normally more challenging for her.
In 2nd place was Ground Supervisor, Mike Guyadin – handicap 15 net 66 – who two weeks ago set a record in the BK Inc Tournament (Flight 10 – 18 category) with a net 60, while 3rd place went to youngest Guyana Open champion, (2013 winner), 18-year old Arvinda ‘Ganguly’ Kishore , handicap 3, net 67. A 4th prize was also awarded and the winner was Club Captain, Chatterpaul Deo, handicap 14, net 68.
‘Ganguly’ also won the Best Gross with 70 points, while Nearest to the Pin was won by Bholawram Deo. 34 golfers participated in the Tournament.
Managing Director of Vish Trading, (Guyana’s largest machinery trader,) Mr Nadyal Ramdial indicated that, being a cricket lover, he is likely to consider a shot at golf in the future. Club member Brian Hackett indicated that Vish Trading was keen on annual sponsorship, and would like their tournament to coincide with memorial activities for the late Mr Prabhudial Ramdial, founder of Vish Trading, about December each year.
Meanwhile, at the ¾ handicap Stableford pairs Club Competition of Friday, August 1st, winning pairs were;- 1st – William Walker & Patrick Prashad, 70 points; 2nd Fazil Hanif & Kallian Tiwari, 69 points; 3rd Joaan Deo & Mike Guyadin, 65 points; and 4th Rishi Sukhram & Christine Sukhram, 64 points.
