Guyana Open female golf champion of 2013, Shanella Webster, displayed some fine performances as she rose to the top spot in Saturday’s medal-play Club Tournament at the Lusignan Golf Club. Fulfilling her promise to win last week’s competition, Webster delivered a gross 91, resulting in a net 66 from her handicap of 25.
The mental approach and encouragement from club Vice President, Dr Philbert London, inspired and encouraged her to succeed. ‘I will win next week,” she had said at the end of the previous competition, on Saturday August 9, even though she did not place among the winners then! But her prophetic words came to pass! Webster’s most recent victory was on Saturday, March 29, 2014 when she won the Torginol Paints sponsored medal-play tournament with a net 64, then edging out veteran player Kalyan Tiwari on a back-nine count since he also fielded a net 64 then! Meanwhile, the previous week’s second place winner, Juliet Prince, who also gave credit to Vice President Dr London’s mental coaching and encouragement, indicated that it was a 5 bogey at one particular hole that forced her in to second, as she too was determined to take the top honours. Prince returned a gross of 103, which gave her a net 67 from her 36 handicap.
Other winners in last Saturday’s tournament were;- 3rd place – Fazil Haniff, handicap 11, net 72; 4th place and Best Gross – Mohanlall ‘Santo’ Dinanauth, handicap 3, gross 75, net 72; and Nearest To the Pin – Patrick Prashad.
Vice President Dr Philbert London, in congratulating the winners, expressed his encouragement that all players would maintain their enthusiasm and continue to compete and produce even better performances.
