Guillermo Escarraga of Macorp seems set to write his name in a prominent place in the upcoming Guyana Open 2019, as he outperformed the field with a superb net 61 off of 21handicap, in the Banks DIH Annual Golf extravaganza on Sunday last at the Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) course.
Representing Banks DIH and congratulate winners whilst handing out prizes on Sunday was Mr. Gavin Todd – a Director of Banks DIH and a veteran golfer – who expressed Banks’ willingness to continue supporting the progress of the LGC.
For the upcoming Guyana Open, new faces could be in the winner’s row in the 19 – 28 Flight as Guillermo’s net 61 – the overall Best Net performance of the day – was way ahead of past Club President Jerome Khan who was second with net 70, off handicap 24.
Other golfers in that Flight followed at a distance: Mauro Remiro and Miguel Oviedo both scoring 78/28, Jordi Pinol (86/28), Lloyd Fung-A-Fat (87/28), Mario Acuna (89/28), Eion Blue (90/28) and Solomon Bannister (96/28).
Noticeably, in the tournament of the day before (Saturday, October 19) Guillermo came in a close second (67/22) behind recently returned Nirmaldeo Sarwan (66/24) who himself could be a keen contender in that category.
Performances in the 10-18 or ‘B’ Flight is generally less predictable as this Flight has the largest group of golfers. On Sunday the winners were Mike Gayadin (64/14) and Mahindranauth Tewari (67/15).
They were followed by Bridgelall Harry (68/16), Lakram Ramsundar (69/18), Rakesh Harry (71/18), Satrohan Tiwari (73/16), Aasrodeen Shaw (74/13), Deoram Dinanath (74/15), Hilbert Shields (74/16), and George Bulkan and Ian Gouveia (75/16) in the range below 76 net.
By comparison, Saturday’s winners were Pur Persaud (64/16), and Satrohan Tiwari (70/16). Sunday’s results in the 0-9 category also intimate possible new faces for the Guyana Open 2019 Winners Row. While 9-times Guyana open champion Avinash Persaud retained the Best Gross score with 73, younger brother and also a previous Guyana Open winner, Avinda Kishore, in producing a gross of 75 seems set on laying a challenge for the title of Champion this year.
In this category the net winners were Avinda Kishore (70/5) and Avinash Persaud (71/2). The performances of Mike Mangal (72/9), Aleem Hussain (73/8), Alfred Mentore (74/9) and Patrick Prashad (75/9) intimates that they too are likely to offer stiff competition for the championship.
In the specialty prize Longest Drive was won by Avinda Kishore, while Nearest The Pin was won by Mahindranauth Tewari.
Banks DIH, which was founded over 175 years ago, has been in support of the Lusignan Golf Club for over four decades, and continues now under the Chairmanship of Mr. Clifford Reis, CCH, to be a major corporate member and partner of the LGC, contributing dependably to its development.
