THE Barbados Golf Club hosted a major event to coincide with the just concluded 2018 Masters in Augusta, and after 18 holes, Joseph Harris and Claudio Macchi emerged winners.

Eighty players, or 40 teams, contested the Two-Ball/Better-Ball Tournament last Saturday at Durants where Harris and Macchi registered an amazing 50 stableford points.

They were chased by Walter Redman and Collis Lynch, who finished second on 46 points and edged Alberto Martinez and Jeff deCaires (also 46) on the countback system.

Fourth were Graham Turner and Harry Watkins (45 points) and fifth were John Bowman and Jim Wimberley (44 points).

Among other prize winners were Bobby Edghill, Scott Stollmeyer, Helen Foster, Jim Wimberley and Thomas Harris – who all took closest-to-pin prizes on the par 3s.

Coordinated by Barbados captain James Johnson and Barbados Golf Club operations director Carleon Brome Jr, the event in the south of the island was a celebration of the globally recognised Masters Tournament, which has been in existence for more than 80 years in Georgia, United States, and is the first major of the four biggest tournaments in international golf.


Keen competition


Following keen competition for prizes on the fairways and greens, players gathered at the Durants Clubhouse where drinks and chatter flowed into the night as they watched the world’s best players tussle for supremacy on a massive digital screen.

“The players enjoyed it and we were happy to host them for such an enjoyable event at the Barbados Golf Club. We are already looking forward to doing it again in 2019,” said Brome. (PR)
