Recently returned to the office of Grounds Superintendent of Lusignan Golf Club, Mike Gayadin, who won his last tournament in 2014 when he was Grounds Superintendent, led the field in fine style on Saturday October 24, as he sought to establish dominance over last weekend’s winner Brian Hackett.
Playing in a very supportive field of some 45 golfers – including 6 from overseas – many ensuring they received good practice for the Guyana Open due this weekend (October 31 – November 1), in the COURTS tournament, Mike won a spectacular victory.
Mike Gayadin (67/15), a veteran golfer of over 15 years and winner of over 20 trophies during his career so far, last won a tournament on Saturday 19, July 2014– the BK Group of Companies Inc. sponsored tournament – when he was Grounds Superintendent; then he grossed 75, and ended with a net 60 – a fantastic score for any golfer, and the same as Brian Hackett returned last week. Prior to that he had won the Maurice Solomon & Associates sponsored Tournament of 11 March 2014. Mike said he simply played a good game and brushed past Hackett.
2nd place winner was M. Shivraj (68/28), while 3rd place winner, Best Gross (70) and Nearest to The Pin was Avinash Persaud (68/2). Avinash, so far five times (2006,2009, 2010, 2012 and 2014) Guyana Open Champion for the Best Gross, parred the Course (as did Imran Khan – himself a previous Guyana Open Champion – last week) with his gross 70, a feat few have achieved and one many hope they could achieve before they finish playing golf.
However, the scores from Saturday’s play were rather encouraging as in the 4th (un-prized) position were three golfers each with a net of 69! Bholawram Deo (69/17) Maurice Solomon (69/24) and Brian Hackett (69/21). These scores augur well for preparation for the Guyana Open.
“COURTS – the household retail giant in Guyana” – Club President Ramroop was careful to note, “has transformed the retail shopping face in Guyana, allowing many householders to receive and enjoy the use of household items on a credit or hire-purchase arrangement, and has also been very supportive of golfing in Guyana for over a decade now.”COURTS’ mission is to give customers total satisfaction and their number one shopping experience every time!
COURTS Guyana has been a tremendous corporate citizen, exemplified in its activities over the last weekend – PeeWee Football at the Thirst Park Ground, the annual Courts Golf Tournament at the Lusignan Golf Club, the Health & Fitness Expo at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, the Elite League Football Tournament & the Polio Walk on Sunday – all in one breath!
COURTS Marketing Manager Purnell Cummings was on hand for the distribution of prizes, and in addition to complimenting the winners, indicated COURTS’ continued support for golf (and so many other sports) in Guyana.
