The Groups started off eagerly at 10:00hrs in brilliant sunshine on a spanking looking golf course. Reigning Guyana Open Champion, Avinash Persaud (72), used his experience much to his advantage to be the clear leader of ‘A’ Flight and to be the undisputed Best Gross for the day’s play.
In the ‘B’ Flight, LGC President Aleem Hussain, who is being sponsored by Chetsons Under Armor brand (84), another experienced golfer, emerged Best Gross winner, while Imtiaz Subhan (98) was Best Gross in the ‘C’ Flight.
