JACOBSEN & GRATIL WIN THE MGA GENERATION CUP 2019
The RMGC Captain, Thomas Jacobsen, and his adopted partner Finley Gratil won the ninth edition of the MGA Generation Cup sponsored by NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto.
Jacobsen and Gratil returned an aggregate Stabelford score of 72 points, four points clear of Laine Tutane who played with her daughter Cherlyn and Gernot Schmid who adopted Filippa Schulze Doering as his partner. These scores were to be much-admired given the continuous downpour of rain that prevailed for two hours whilst the competition was being played on Sunday, 7th April.
In all, twenty teams played in the main competition whilst another five teams played in the nine-hole competition aimed for the younger legs to have fun. This was played in a foursomes stableford format with the additional twist that the seniors always teed off.
Sophia and her son Sixten Ekmark as well as Edward and his grandson Marcus Sullivan were awarded consolation prizes by the kind sponsor for their spirit to play given the weather.
Eric Akkerhuis with his adopted partner Luigi Gatt placed third whilst Maria Camilleri with her adopted partner Carla Baldacchino placed second. The veritable winners were Johann and his son Ganni Camilleri who returned a score of 25 points.
The prizes for the tournament were presented to the winners by Ms Gabrielle Galea Gusman (Nestle Malta Brand Manager Dolce Gusto).
