Stiff competition expected in Agro Services-Amazon Planx Golf Tournament on Sunday 21/2
The Lusignan Golf Club, having hosted a most interesting tournament just under a month ago, is hosting the Agro Services-Amazon Planx Golf Tournament on Sunday, 21st instant from 09:00 hrs.
This Open tournament would be contested in the medal play format, which would see an individual golfer recording each of his shots in an attempt to finish the round using the lowest number of strokes.
Most people regard stroke play as the traditional way of playing golf, as it is the one most often seen on television, notably in tournaments held by the PGA Tour and its international equivalents.
In terms of Gross, the golfer who has posted the lowest round wins, and in terms of Net, the golfer who has posted the lowest round net of his handicap wins.
In Sunday’s competition, prizes would be awarded to the top four best net finishers, best gross, nearest-to-the-pin, and the longest drive. A total of 40 players are expected to compete, among whom would expectedly be Max Persaud, Patanjilee Persaud, Avinash Persaud, Troy Cadogan, Ravi Persaud, Brian Hackett and the veteran Maurice Solomon.
