The Copa Airlines inaugural tournament of Saturday last saw Mike Mangal, Ian Gouveia, Imtiaz Subhan, and Shanella London excelling in their individual Flights under excellent weather and ground conditions at the Lusignan Golf Course.
Copa Airline Sales Manager, Nadine Oudkerk, and team comprising Sales Executive, Christopher Ferrell and Counter Agent, Karen Mohamed, were on hand early to observe that the golfers were impressed with Copa and in fact produced very competitive scores in a very cordial atmosphere. At the end of the tournament Ms Oudkerk and Mr Ferrell congratulated the winners and their consensus was that Copa was delighted to be associated with the Lusignan Golf Club, the vision and direction it was moving in under Club President Aleem Hussain, and stated that Copa was very likely to continue supporting the LGC as it moves forward. Each of the representatives was involved in the distribution of prizes to the winners.
In the separate Ladies flight, the winners were: former Guyana Open Ladies champion, Shanella London (67/14) – 1st; Eureka Giddings (69/29) – 2nd; and another former Guyana Open Ladies champion, Dr Joaan Deo (73/15) – 3rd. Curent Guyana Open Ladies champion, Christine Sukhram, and past Ladies Captain, veteran Ms Doreen DeCaires also participated and performed encouragingly.
Specialty prizes of Nearest The Pin was won by George Bulkan, and Longest Drive by Troy Cadogan.
Among the Gentlemen, in the 19-28 flight, winners were: young Imtiaz Subhan (71/19) – 1st;veteran Maurice Solomon (72/26) – 2nd; and veteran Bholawram Deo (74/19) – 3rd. Miguel Oviedo (77/24) and Jordi Pinol (77/27) came fairly close behind the winners.
In the extremely competitive 10 – 18 flight where the bulk of golfers fall, the scores testify to the intense jostle and rivalry for the winning spots. First 3 places went to left-handed championIan Gouveia (65/15) – 1st, who produced a fantastic overal best net score of 65; veteran David Harry (69/14) -2nd; and past President, Hilbert Shields, (72/16) – 3rd. However, 3rd place was obtained out of a tie by 4 persons – so Aasrodeen Shaw (72/13), Patanjilee ‘Pur’ Persaud (72/14) and Rabindranauth Persaud (72/16) were narrowly edged out by Hilbert. Ravi Harry (73/14), George Bulkan (74/16), Guillermo Escarraga (74/18), Andre Cummings (75/14), Rakesh Harry (75/14) and Pope-Emanuel London (75/18) were following very hard on the winners.
In the 0-9 flight, winners were: former Guyana Open champion, Mike Mangal (66/9) – 1st; reigning Guyana Open champion, Avinash Persaud (68/2) – 2nd; and veteran Richard Hanfff (73/9)- 3rd.Missing this flight’s winners row by only one or two strokes were Kassim Khan (74/9), Aleem Hussain (75/9) and Patrick Prashad (79/9). Avinash performed superbly by “parring” the Course, that is, taking 70 strokes to complete playing all 18 holes – a feat that few golfers achieve in their lifetime!
