Two new golf Classic champions
Two new champions are celebrating victories in the RBC Royal Bank Golf Classic after outstanding performances yesterday at the Barbados Golf Club.
Scott Stollmeyer fended off his closest rivals in the men’s championship to post an even par 72 while former Jamaica player Leiza Munn-Blakeley continued her domination of the women’s division and converted an early three-stroke lead into victory.
Stollmeyer, driving solidly off the tee and displaying good touch around the greens, took the championship with a 36-hole gross 145, which was four strokes better than early contender Stephen Layne, of Canada, who shot 77 on the final day to finish on 149.
Barbados Open champion Julian Jordan registered 76 yesterday for a gross 150, which was good enough for third place ahead of former Barbados cricketer Nolan Clarke (152) and Roger Bostic , 154.
