Five win at golf
Five new winners were crowned last weekend when the Courtesy Garage Monthly Medal tournament for February was contested at the Barbados Golf Club.
An impressive field of 72 players teed-off in the competition, which featured a 1 p.m. shotgun start, and some keen tussles were witnessed in sunny conditions on the challenging Durants course.
At the end of 18 holes, Yogi Lehtinen emerged winner of the seniors division with a net 64 while Bernard Babb took the 13 and over handicap category with a net 71.
Jane Harper topped the women’s division, with a net 70, while Lennox Bourne was the winner among the low handicappers with a net 69.
National junior Iz Hustler shot the day’s best gross score of 69, to win the gross prize for the second straight month.
Monthly medal tournaments are being sponsored by Courtesy Garage for the second year running, through their Nissan and Hyundai brands, and players are being awarded points for top three finishes.
Another 10 medal tournaments are to be contested and the leaders in the four divisions will qualify for a year-end play-off to determine the overall champions for 2017.
