Linton, Tehro win on greens
It was?fun and keen rivalry with the aim of making it to the 2013 Irish Open when the inaugural Digicel Paddy’s Pitch Hole-in-One and Stableford Golf Competition came off last Sunday at the Barbados Golf Club (GGC).
No player was lucky enough to register a hole-in-one but Harriett Linton defied all comers to win the nine-hole Stableford competition with 25 points.
For the attractive prize of a trip for two to the Irish Open, 60 players tried their best tee-shots from the 10th hole to the 9th green which was a distance of 165 yards over water. In the end, Jukka Tehro took the Waves closest to the pin prize, as he finished six feet, seven inches from the hole.
The event coincided with St Patrick’s Day celebrations and following action on the course, players, friends and supporters all enjoyed a “Nine and Nine” party at the clubhouse.
“It was our first Paddy’s Pitch event in Barbados and it was a great day, with a mix of visiting and local players. It is an event for the entire family and we are working to make it bigger and better next year,” said BGC director Roddy Carr. (PR)
