Heljenik, Lee are Sir Charles champs
BRAIN LEE AND TIM HELJENIK emerged winners of the second annual Sir Charles Williams Invitational Golf Tournament which was contested last weekend at the Apes Hill Club.
Lee and Heljenik came through on the final 18 holes of the 36-hole tournament as they posted 72 stableford points, to add to their first day 39, and clinch the championship with 111 points.
They finished one point ahead of Nigel Lynall and Ricky Simpson (110 points), who were also one-point better than third-placed Gary Jones and Steve Newman (109) in the two-ball/ better-ball tournament.
Among other players collecting prizes on Saturday night at the clubhouse were Shane Johnson and Cally Boyea, for nearest to-the-pin tee-shots on Day 1, and Naz Hosein and Yvonne Brewer, for similar performances on Day 2.
Mary Ann Lady Williams and David Henderson were voted the best team on Day 1, with 42 stableford points, while Shane Johnson and Richie Alleyne took Day 2 with 67 points.
The two-day event, organised by PGA professional Ben Hatch and his staff, attracted a field of 48 golfers from England, the United States, Canada and the Caribbean for the Charles Williams Trophy.
It is the club’s most prestigious event and brings together friends, associates and business partners of Sir Charles, who thanked all participants and said he was pleased that they enjoyed the event and the high-end amenities at Apes Hill.
Sir Charles promised that the presentation ceremony for the third Invitational Tournament in 2016 will be held in the brand new clubhouse which is under construction at Apes Hill. (BB)
