The race for the title of 2018 Annual Club Champion continued at the Lusignan Golf Club this past weekend and saw a new contender making waves as Wayne Chan defied the rain and wind to take top Best Net honours spot with a score of 69.
Pur Persaud continued to make a statement as he shot a net 72 to come in second and Guillermo Escarraga made his return to the course felt with a net 74 to finish in third position.
In the Best Gross category, it was Club President Aleem Hussain taking the first place with 2-time Guyana Open Champion Mike Mangal in second and Pur Persaud challenging for the third spot.
The winner of the annual points competition gets a variety of prizes along with a full year of bragging rights and the competition was keenly contested in the early stages but after winning the first four events, the Best Net Champion Title looks to be a shoo-in for the newly elected Club President Aleem Hussain who has performed extremely well this year. There is still a battle for the Best Gross Title as Mike Mangal refuses to quit and with just two matches left to play, it will come down to very end.
