PRO-AM

GOLFE - - SPECIAL REPORT -

The open­ing Pro-Am was at­tended by 128 play­ers (32 teams) rep­re­sent­ing the var­i­ous spon­sors of the tour­na­ment. Among the 32 pro­fes­sion­als were eight Por­tuguese and of the 96 ama­teur guests from all over the coun­try none were miss­ing, which rarely hap­pens. The tour­na­ment took place in hot weather, but the wind that erupted more in­tensely in the early af­ter­noon caused greater dif­fi­cul­ties. The tri­umph be­longed to the Mun­di­ar­roz team led by the Swiss Marco Iten and the am­a­teurs Vi­tor Ro­drigues da Silva, João Es­cud­eiro and João Potier, with 36 un­der par, fol­lowed by the Europ­car team, with Borja Virto, Bar­bara Pol­zot, Sér­gio Gar­cia Leanizbaru­tia and Joaquim Mon­teiro with 34 un­der. In third place was the NAU team Matt Ford, João Figueiredo, Car­los Con­ceição and Valde­mar Afonso with 29 un­der. The prizes were dis­trib­uted dur­ing a cock­tail party in the late af­ter­noon at the host club.

OPro-Am de aber­tura do Open teve a par­tic­i­pação de 128 jo­gadores (32 equipas) em rep­re­sen­tação dos vários pa­troci­nadores do torneio. En­tre os 32 profis­sion­ais es­tiveram oito por­tugue­ses e dos 96 amadores con­vi­da­dos de todo o País nen­hum fal­tou, o que é raro suceder. O torneio decor­reu com tempo quente mas o vento que surgiu com mais in­ten­si­dade ao in­í­cio da tarde cau­sou maiores di­fi­cul­dades. O tri­unfo per­tenceu à equipa da Mun­di­ar­roz lid­er­ada pelo suíço Marco Iten e com os amadores Vi­tor Ro­drigues da Silva, João Es­cud­eiro e João Potier, com 36 abaixo do par, segui­dos pela equipa da Europ­car, com Borja Virto, Bár­bara Pol­zot, Sér­gio Gar­cia Leanizbaru­tia e Joaquim Mon­teiro, com 34. No ter­ceiro lu­gar fi­cou a equipa da NAU (Matt Ford, João Figueiredo, Car­los Con­ceição e Valde­mar Afonso) com 29 abaixo. Os prémios foram dis­tribuí­dos du­rante o cock­tail, ao fim da tarde, no clube an­fitrião.
