Shanella Webster, Mahendra Bhagwandin, Bridgelal Harry and Sunil Loutan seem set
to make strides at the upcoming International Guyana Open this weekend. The quartet produced excellent stroke play to emerge winners in Saturday’s Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) Invitational Tournament.
Ladies category champion Shanella Webster simply gave honor to her coach: “I continue to give God thanks for the fantastic, rigorous and exemplary coaching of ‘His Holiness’ Dr London. He continues to push me to greater expectations and performances. My golfing today was evidence of his excellent coaching.”
Winner of the championship flight, – the 0-9 handicap flight – veteran Sunil Loutan spoke about his performance, “I played a very good game. It was reward for my hard practice almost every day of the past week. Look out for me next week at the Guyana Open.”
Captain Chen Deo was pleased with the performances of all 38 players, and was excited that the local golfers will offer strong competition among themselves and against any visitors in the upcoming international Guyana Open Tournament, this Saturday and Sunday. He felt it was noticeable that Vice President Dr London played an excellent game, stunted primarily by a stroke play of 7 on his penultimate par 3 hole.
‘His Holiness’ Dr London commented: “I clearly had the best game in my category, until a distraction at the end of the game threw me off completely, causing me to utilize some 5 extra strokes above par over the last 2 holes. I was on 32 strokes going into the penultimate hole and ended up with a total of 45, adding some 13 strokes where par would have been only 6 more giving me 38, with a net 59 for the game,”
Last Saturday’s game left one almost breathless with anticipation for the exciting play that would take place this weekend at the Guyana Open. All of the top net scores were 68 or less. All of the winners have been doing excellently each week, some winning more than once in the past two months.
Visiting Canadian player Mo-Shaffie already added the international flare, placing 2nd in his category.
Winners in the various flights and their scores were as follows:
Ladies Flight – Shanella Webster 23/68
19-28 Flight – 1st Mahendra Bhagwandin 27/64, 2nd Dr Philbert London 26/64
