Former Barbados Badminton champion Argyle Maynard has traded his racquets for golf clubs and is making it to the podium.

Maynard was the dominant player last weekend when the Courtesy Garage March Medal tournament was contested at the Barbados Golf Club.

He fought off intermittent showers and a competitive field to register the day’s best gross score of four-over-par 76 and grabbed two prizes in the process.

Along with the day’s best gross, Maynard also copped the best nett score of 68 among players with 0-12 handicaps. He was one stroke better than Roger Bryan, who shot 69.

Allison Rimple was winner of the women’s division with a nett 76, three strokes better than Mannie Newell (79).

Among other division winners were Algie Leacock, who shot a nett 68 to clinch the 13 and over handicap category, and Eric Layne who took the seniors’ division with a nett 68.

Layne edged Barbados player Birchmore Griffith on the count-back system, as both finished with a nett 68. Consistent veteran Denzil Hall was a stroke back on 69.

All winners, and other players among the top three in their divisions, collected vital points in the race towards the year-end championship play-off.

Around 50 players contested the 18-hole tournament that featured an 8mm shotgun start on the challenging Durants course.

Monthly medal tournaments are being sponsored by Courtesy Garage for the third year running, through their Nissan and Hyundai brands, and Tournament Director Mike Jackman disclosed that another nine competitions are scheduled this year. (PR)
