Bulkan wins held-over Caricom Day golf tournament
George Bulkan, the son of Minister Ronald Bulkan, executed some fine drives, chips and putts to emerge champion golfer in the Sunday July 14, 2019 held-over Caricom Day tournament.
Course conditions were much improved over Saturday’s wet grounds, as the weather held off from Saturday right into Sunday’s play, much to the delight of those who were using the two-day experience in preparation of the Lusignan Open, scheduled for July 20-21.
The day’s activity also saw both father and son Bulkan participating, but it was the son who shone to bring first in a tournament in almost 10 years of playing.
In addition, many student golfers from the Accountancy Training Centre (ATC), who are normally at the Golf Course for golf tuition and practice on Sundays, were involved, some of them participating also in the presentation ceremony.
Instead of Flights, the tournament was played on a straight Medal Play format involving all the golfers. Prizes for first to fourth Best Net, along with the Longest Drive were awarded to the winners.
1st– George Bulkan (69/15)
2nd– Guillermo Escarraga (72/22)
3rd– Aleem Hussain (72/8)
Hussain also delivered the Longest Drive of the day. Fourth place was won by Mahindranauth Tewari (75/15).
Meanwhile, the Lusignan Open, which was resuscitated in 2018, under President Aleem Hussain after being off the LGC’s annual calendar for several years, is one of the two premier tournaments now held annually at the Club, the other being the two-day Guyana Open, normally held in October/November.
