Rookie Eion Blue pulled out all the stops to produce a magnificent gross 92 giving him a net 64 off 28 handicap to emerge champion. Blue stated, “I had a really good game today, My play all around was just good.”
Dewar Whiskeys first individual sponsorship of Saturday November 9, was met with resounding success as the golfers took to the course early to enjoy the good grounds and fine weather under a staggered start system.
Teeing off at 09:00am were Eion Blue, Patanjilee Persaud, Bholawram Deo and Paton George. It seemed as if the cool start caused Eion to excel as he outperformed his group and set the days winning score. Other groups began at 11:00am with the rest of players teeing off between 12:00 and 12:30pm. The staggered start allowed for very good performances as golfers played at their own unhindered quick paces.
In the 0-9 Flight, former Guyana Open champion Alfred Mentore forged ahead of the other champions in his group. Winners were: 1st Alfred Mentore (68/9); 2nd Patrick Prashad (70/8); and 3rd Mike Mangal (72/8). They were closely followed by Jaipaul Suknanan (73/9), Kassim Khan (73.8) and Monnaf Arjune (75/9).

In the 19-28 flight, winners were: 1st- (with the tournaments Best Net score and therefore automatically the tournament Champion) Eion Blue (64/28); 2nd Guillermo Escarraga (70/19); and 3rd Bholawram Deo (71/19) the better of a tie with Videsh Persaud (71/28). Other notable performances in this flight came from Jordi Pinol (73/28), Maurice Solomon (73/26), and Sarwan (73/20).
