Farmsup, as its mantra states, DELIVERS. And did it ever! The largest assembly of top golfers in Guyana, both of national and international pedigree. With one golfer we all know well making a strong statement in this lead-up tournament with just 5 weeks of play remaining before the GT&T Guyana Open.
Avinash Persaud beat the tough par-70 LGC course by 3-shots with an inspiring gross score of 67, playing off a zero handicap. He also deservingly won the first best Net to carve off 10 points in the points chase to the GT&T Guyana Open championship, scheduled for October 30th and 31st.”
The LGC has noted that players who participate in tournaments from September 18 to October 25 would be eligible for consideration for free entry as a player into the Guyana Open Tournament via a competition format.
The points for free entry will be for the first 10 best net scores for each tournament; also, points will be awarded to the top five players of the day, based on their net scores. The player who accumulates the most points at the end of the exercise will be declared the winner, and can participate in the Guyana Open without having to pay the tournament fee.
