BARBADOS - golf - Beacon Barbados Open 2006
Compliments of the Nation news by HALLAM HOPE
JAMES JOHNSON won his second Beacon Barbados Open and fifth overall golf title after a gripping final round toe-to-toe tussle with Kittitian Trevor Levine at Durants.
A final day charge at the Barbados Golf Club course by Levine, who sunk three birdies in the first seven holes to none from Johnson, forced the Barbadian to dig deep and pull out a pair of eagles.
Levine won the round by two shots with a five under par 67, but Johnson, who led the solid Kittitian by three strokes at the start of the day, finished three under, the men's championship flight winner by a solitary stroke.
It came down to the final hole, when Johnson hit his approach shot inches into the rough, but recovered with two shots for a par while Levine completed the last of his six birdies for the day.
Johnson shot 36 on the front and 33 on the back for a total of 207 shots with eagles at holes 12 and 15.
Levine's final round 67 comprised 34 on the front and 33 on the back. Sean Edey was third with 216 shots for the three days with one over par on Sunday.
Jamie Hole was the women's champion with a gross 241 for the three days, four less than Claire Jordan. Mary Ince, 15, was fourth and named the Most Improved Player. She shot the second best individual women's score of 77 Saturday which also helped her win the nett prize in the women's championship flight.
Newton Daisley won the men's first flight, Kendrick Haynes outlasted Ricky
Skeete to win the senior men's title, and physician Dr Robert Gaskin was the winner of the super seniors title.
This year's Beacon Barbados Open turned out to be an exciting clash between Levine, the top player in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States, and Johnson, Barbados' best and one of the top performers in the Caribbean.
Levine led Johnson by one stroke with a two under par on the opening day, but Johnson replied with six-under (67) on Saturday to set up a close finish.
Nick Voss won the Junior prize, while another youngster, Dane da Silva, impressed and was third in the men's first flight.
The men's nine and under handicap nett prize went to Dawn Bispham (210), while Simon Proverbs was second with 214 shots and another junior, Maurice Forde, third with 217.
Trinidadian Subash Ranjitsingh (208) won the nett prize in the 10-18 handicap category, with Trenton Weekes (211) second and Andrew Guilfoyle (216) third. Ray Marshall was the winner of the nett prize in the Senior men's division with 222 shots with Robert Piggott third on 223.
Terry Atkinson (213) was the nett prize winner in the men's Super Senior category.
