Garry Sobers Golf Championships 2010 23rd to 25th April - Media Report Day Three Sunday

Sat, 2010-04-24 17:00

The young Bajan lions triumphed when the curtain came down on the 2010 Garry Sobers Golf Championships Sunday afternoon in Barbados. James Johnson fiercely defended his mens’ title while teenager Mary Ince posted the narrowest of finishes to take her first lien on the title.
 
Barbados based English Pro Alex Sandeman, holder of the Guinness Book of Records title for most birdies in a single day’s play, blasted a nine shot victory over the professionals, beating Antigua’s Ulric Francis and Chris Richards of Trinidad and Tobago. Sandeman posted the day’s joint low gross 69 to finish with the best championship aggregate of 210, nine better than Francis and thirteen better than Richards.
 
The hottest action was in the ladies and men’s championships which literally went down to the final hole and in which two of the leading men hit into the lake at the 18th green to close a remarkable day and weekend. Nineteen year old Miss Ince scored 76 on the day, Englishwoman Becky Dowell posted 79 and defending ladies champion Lynn deCambra-McLeod hit 80 to leave all three on 233. On the count back system, Ince’s low 76 today saw her home, by a whisker.
 
James Johnson’s joint low gross 69 placed him at 216 aggregate – one better than Marcus Clarke who, like Johnson, went into the 18th hole lake. Clarke’s aggregate was one better that Adrian Norford who shared the low gross 69 but that placed him on 218, one behind Clarke.
 
In the other divisions, Barbadians Freddie Jackman, Mark Evelyn and Michael Smith won the men’s’ first, second and third flights respectively: Trinidad’s Michael Commissiong edged Ricky Skeete for the seniors title while defending champion Richie Alleyne had little trouble ending with a run a way win in the super seniors.
