Monnaf Arjune wins year-end Medal Play golf tournament
In fine style, and more focused on the bragging rights, Monnaf Arjune was delighted as he emerged Net Champion in the Lusignan Golf Club’s end-of-year 18-hole Medal Play Club Tournament last weekend.
Playing at the Lusignan Golf Course, Monnaf scored 69, including a Birdie from a massive 150-yard four-iron hole-in stroke, on Hole Number Seven.
He outdistanced the competitors, including Guyana’s current male National Golf Champion, Avinash Persaud, who, though winning the Best Gross prize with an excellent score of 74, came in third after a tie with veteran player Gavin Todd for a Net score of 71.
In fourth place was Lusignan Golf Club Treasurer, Miguel Yunes, showing great improvement in the use of his Driver, with a net score of 74.
Meanwhile, former Captain, Patrick Prashad brought his experience and skill to bear, winning both the Longest Drive and Nearest-to- the-Pin specialty prizes.
Club Captain Dr. Pope Emanuel London, in expressing congratulations to the winners and thanks to the participants, indicated that the new year promises to have even more exciting and rewarding competitions for the golfers.
