CG ENGENHEIRO­S CLUB CHAM­PI­ONSHIP

GOLFE - - CLUB NEWS -

The Clube de Golfe dos Engenheiro­s or­ga­nized in Al­garve, on the week­end of 23 and 24 Novem­ber, its most em­blem­atic event: the Club Cham­pi­onship. In the best spirit of the big in­ter­na­tional cir­cuits, the ranks in the dif­fer­ent En­gi­neers’ com­pe­ti­tions were con­verted into points and the Club play­ers went for the Cham­pi­onship with a rank­ing or­der that al­lowed al­most ev­ery­one to still be cham­pi­ons. And so ev­ery­one was in play to dress the cov­eted Blue Jacket, an honor be­stowed on the Club’s an­nual cham­pion. The first day was played in the al­ready fa­mous Match­play Sixes for­mat, at the mag­nif­i­cent Pal­mares course. The big win­ner of the day was the club’s youngest prom­ise, An­tónio de San­ta­maria Gou­veia, who was re­lent­less in win­ning his three matches. Soon af­ter, Joaquim For­tu­nato and Car­los Azevedo showed that the at­mos­phere of the Al­garve’s Barlavento are also good for them.

The stage of the sec­ond day was the Pen­ina Cham­pi­onship Course, that was in sub­lime state. José Salas Pires dom­i­nated the field, com­plet­ing his round with 38 points. He was fol­lowed by Agostinho Silva with 37 points and José Mata with 35 points. Af­ter the two days, the Club Cham­pi­onship was also de­cided. Paulo Lopes, who had en­tered the first day with a slight lead in qual­i­fy­ing, main­tained the con­sis­tency nec­es­sary to have the honor of wear­ing the Blue Jacket. A sixth place on the first day and a fourth on the sec­ond en­sured suc­cess in the cul­mi­na­tion of an­other tremen­dous sport­ing sea­son at the Club.

OClube de Golfe dos Engenheiro­s or­ga­ni­zou no Al­garve, no fim-de-se­m­ana de 23 e 24 de Novem­bro, a sua prova mais em­blemática: o Cam­pe­onato do Clube. No mel­hor espírito dos gran­des cir­cuitos in­ter­na­cionais, as clas­si­fi­cações nas difer­entes provas dos Engenheiro­s foram con­ver­tidas em pon­tos e os jo­gadores do Clube par­ti­ram para o Cam­pe­onato com uma or­de­nação clas­si­fica­tiva que per­mi­tia a quase to­dos ainda serem campeões. E as­sim to­dos es­tavam em jogo para ve­stir o co­biçado Blue Jacket, honra con­ce­dida ao campeão an­ual do Clube.

O primeiro dia foi dis­putado no já famoso for­mato de Match­play Sixes, tendo por palco o mag­ní­fico campo de Pal­mares. O grande vence­dor do dia foi a mais jovem promessa do clube, An­tónio de San­ta­maria Gou­veia, que foi im­placável ao vencer os seus três matches. Logo de seguida, Joaquim For­tu­nato e Car­los Azevedo mostraram que os ares do barlavento al­gar­vio tam­bém lhes são propí­cios. O palco do se­gundo dia foi o Pen­ina Cham­pi­onship Course, campo em es­tado sub­lime. José Salas Pires domi­nou o field, com­ple­tando a sua volta com 38 pon­tos. Seguiram-se Agostinho Silva com 37 pon­tos e José Mata com 35 pon­tos. Feitas as con­tas dos dois dias, o Cam­pe­onato do Clube es­tava tam­bém de­ci­dido. Paulo Lopes, que en­trara no primeiro dia com uma ligeira van­tagem na clas­si­fi­cação, man­teve a con­sistên­cia necessária para ter a honra de ve­stir o Blue Jacket. Um sexto lugar no primeiro dia e um quarto no se­gundo garan­ti­ram o sucesso no cul­mi­nar de mais uma tremenda época de­sportiva do Clube.
