Proverbs still step ahead
BARBADOS PLAYERS Simon Proverbs and James Johnson are locked in a straight fight for the title going into today’s third and final day of the Sagicor Barbados Open Golf Championship.
At the end of Day 2 at Royal Westmoreland yesterday, Proverbs maintained his slim one-stroke lead over the defending champion and will be forced to show his mettle over the last 18 holes to stave off the Barbados captain.
On a sunny day, with somewhat higher winds, both leaders slipped as they posted three over par 75s but were still clear of the field in the men’s championship flight. After 36 holes, Proverbs posted a gross 146 and Johnson 147.
Trinidadian Johnathan Millien shot the day’s best score of 73, keeping him in third place, four shots behind the leader. Fourth was young Barbados player Xzavier Wiggins with a gross 154. (PR)
