Escarraga storms to victory in Genuine Auto Spares and Tools golf tournament


Chief Executive Officer of MACORP Guillermo Escarraga returned to winning ways on Saturday by copping the top prize in the Genuine Auto Spares and Tools golf tournament at the Lusignan Golf Course, East Coast Demerara.

Not only did Escarraga return to the top podium sport after a long hiatus, but he did so in grand style, recording the lowest net score (64) for the year.

Escarraga had a net of 32 on the front nine, and a similar score on the back nine, which was incidentally the best net score for that phase of the competition.

With that Escarraga bested a strong field, which included a resurgent performance from second place finisher Aasrodeen Shaw, who carded a respectable net score of 66. Shaw’s score would have won on most days, but Saturday belonged to Escarraga.

The third and fourth place finishers are two gentlemen who are in top form in 2022- Miguel Oveido in third followed by the winner of the previous competition, Bholawram Deo.

Genuine Auto Spares and Tools Managing Director, Amrit Prashad, gave the closing remarks, thanking the Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) for hosting a fantastic tournament.

He expressed great satisfaction that his company has chosen a great partner in the LGC and continues to sponsor annual tournaments to support the club’s vision of growing the game of golf and expanding the game to anyone wishing to learn.

Vice-President Paton George thanked the Genuine Auto Spares and Tools team for their second year sponsorship and their commitment to future partnerships with the LGC.

“We are proud to be en route to realising one of our goals: opening the grounds to the public and beginning the search for talent. On Saturday April 16th, the Lusignan Club will host our inaugural kids fun day event, which will feature a drive, chip and putt kids from 5-15 competition,” George said.

“There will be lots of treats and fun prizes for the kids, including membership packages to the LGC. This will be a first for the club and our hope is that parents take the opportunity to sign up for this event. You never know Guyana might be the birthplace of the next Tiger Woods. And Genuine Auto and all our sponsors play an important role in that search.”
