LGC Crown Mining Golf Tournament set for today

…George expects great competition

The Crown Mining Supplies Golf Tournament will kickstart the 2022 golf action at the Lusignan Golf Club today at 12:30 hrs.

LGC VP, Paton George

LGC VP Paton George is expecting an action-packed tournament, and many top golfers participating in the lucrative tournament.
In an interview with this publication, George elaborated on what many can expect today when they turn out. “A number of players are in surprisingly good form early in the season. Committee members like Maxim Mangra, Rabindra Persaud [p/d] and Patanjalee Persaud all looking to have a strong showing. Other informed players include Robert Hanoman and Andre Cummings, to name a few. The course is in great shape for this big tournament, and we are expecting a strong turnout of approximately 45 players. Up to press time, 36 had signed up, and we expect another 8 to sign up.”
If the weather remains dry, the game is likely to be played with some advantages, as the dryness would aid in driving. However, if the rain falls, it would affect the game, as the golfers would have to recalibrate their strategies. Thus sunshine would be beneficial to many, as many have seen in the past what it is like to play at the LGC under beautiful sunshine. The firm, dry conditions would make it easier for players to spin the golf ball with a well-struck shot from short grass. Conversely, when putting greens are soft, they hinder almost any shot, no matter how well it was struck.
The format of the tournament is a Medal play over 18 holes net scores in three flights shotgun start. The three flights are players-9-and under handicap, 10-18 handicap, and 19-36 handicap.
Prizes would be awarded to first position in all three flights. There would be a second-place prize in all three flights, and additional gifts for the tournament. Prizes would also be given for nearest to the flag, longest drive, best net overall (first, second and third), and best gross.
All COVID-19 protocols would be in effect.
