Ally/Watkins team up to win Independence Day golf
The pair of Anasha Ally and Tom Watkins teamed on Wednesday (May 26) last to win the Lusignan Golf Club’s Independence Day 2021 Open tournament.
The competition was intended to be an 18-hole showdown, but inclement weather forced a shortened nine-hole tournament.
Ally and Watkins, playing off a nine handicap, had a Gross of 39 and Net 30, staving off a challenge from the next two pairs, who had to be separated on a countback.
Pope London and Shanella London, playing off a seven handicap, finished second with Gross 38 and Net 31, while the pair of Patrick Prashad and Andrew Cummings, playing off a handicap of six, took third with Gross 37 and Net 31.
Fourth place went to Mike Mangal/Rohan Albert (handicap nine), who recorded Gross 41, Net 32.
“There were 42 players, but the persistent rain made it difficult to have a full day. The greens were extremely wet, which made putting a challenge. Other than that it was a day of fun and relaxation for all members and visitors,” the Club said.
The prizes, which included bottles of wine, key ring golf balls, golf balls, umbrellas, towels and golf clothing, were contributed by the Executive Committee of the Lusignan Golf Club.
Meanwhile, the Hallmark and C&L Construction Inc. Open, scheduled for Saturday (May 29), is postponed until further notice.
“This postponement is necessary due to the wet course caused by persistent rainfall,” the Club reported on Friday.
