BORG WITH ZAGAYDAK WIN THE MGA GENERATION CUP 2018
Eileen Borg playing with her adopted junior player Zhofrey Sagaydak won the eighth edition of the MGA Generation Cup sponsored by NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto which was played at the Royal Malta Golf Club on Sunday, 29th April 2018.
A total of 40 players played in the main tournament whilst another 20 participated in the concurrent 9-hole competition organised for the very young players. Both categories were played as stroke play Stableford with the points from each of the two team players aggregated towards the team score.
The 9-hole competition was won by Laine Tutane and her son Thomas with a score of 33 points. Second place was claimed by Erik Akkerhuis who adopted Luigi Gatt returning a score of 26 points just one ahead of Patrick Baldacchino who played with his daughter Carla.
Out of the twenty pairs in the main competition, only three managed to play to an aggregate equivalent to their handicap or better with the junior team members all playing a significant role in the scoring. Ricky Reeves with son Sam placed third with an aggregate of 74 points – 42 of which returned from young Sam playing off a handicap of 9. Irwin Gratil playing with his son Noah placed second with an aggregate score of 75 points – 40 of which returned from young Noah playing off a handicap of 34. Both very good scores considering the weather conditions on the day. But there was no denying Eileen and Zhofrey who, playing off handicaps 26 and 36 respectively – returned individual scores of 43 and 41 for an aggregate of 84.
The prizes for the tournament were presented to the winners by Gabriella Galea Gusman (Product Manager at NESTLÉ Malta) in the presence of Vincent Portelli (RMGC Club Captain) and William Beck (MGA President).
