Undaunted by the early morning heavy showers that did little to prevent the Course from being playable due to the great improvements of drainage and dams now in place, Past Golf Club President Hemraj Kissoon, with some members of his family, was on hand and participated in the tournament when veteran golfer Kalyan Tiwari beat off all competitors to win the coveted Kissoon’s Mega Store Tournament trophy and one of four gift vouchers, on Saturday last at the Lusignan Golf Course.
The winner explained that, “The Course was good, the weather was fine and I had consistently good driver strokes, along with a great short game,” so he was able to produce a net 67. Winning performances for the tournament were Longest Drive – Richard Haniff – 320 yards; Closest to The Pin – Mike Mangal; Best Gross – Mike Mangal – 78; and Net Scores: 4th place – Gavin Todd, 71/19; 3rd place – Mike Mangal 70/8; 2nd place – Shanella Webster, 69/17; and 1st place – Kalyan Tiwari 67/12.
Other notable contenders in the top 10 net performances were Parmanand Persaud 72/11; Aasrodeen Shaw 73/17; Brian Hackett 73/18; Mohanlall Dinanauth 74/6; Roy Cummings 74/11; David Harry 74/12 and Aleem Hussain 74/12.
Mr. Kissoon, in his congratulatory remarks to the winners, again noted the Kissoon Group of Companies delight in assisting the Golf Club via sponsorship and in whatever way they could, and reiterated his support for all the improvements taking place at the Lusignan Golf Club under President Aleem Hussain.
Kissoon’s Furniture Complex – also officially known as Modern Industries Limited – of Lot #3-6 Industrial Site, Ruimveldt, Georgetown, Tel:(592)223-0958/59; Fax: (592)227-5265, is a Guyana Household name with the memorable slogan “never knowingly undersold” as well as being a proud Guyanese Business producing world class furniture. Kissoon’s has been associated with the LGC for some 50 years, and is still a valued and faithful supporter of the LGC.
Mr. Kissoon also commended Shivnarine Chanderpaul, whom he noted was one of Guyana’s greatest sportsmen, for being on hand to observe the day’s play.
Shiv indicated that he was happy to be part of golfing in Guyana, and he was very pleased at the great improvements he saw at the Golf Club compared to his last visit, a while ago. He gave his commitment to having a Celebrity Tournament, in the next few months (August 2018), which would involve many great cricketers who also play golf. He assured those present that once that tournament is a success he would be mindful to have it become an annual feature of the LGC calendar of events.
