Dawn Bispham and Cardinal Burnett are having a Merry Christmas after winning the 2017 President's Putter at the Royal Westmoreland golf club on Sunday (Dec.10).
Playing among a field of 80 players, made up of 40 two-ball teams, the winners carded 62 over 18 holes to win the better-ball tournament which was the Barbados Golf Association's (BGA) annual year-ending competition.
National player Bispham steered the way for the champions with a number of crucial birdies that pushed them two strokes clear of second-placed finishers Horace Cobham and Eric Layne.
Cobham and Layne posted 64 and narrowly edged Tony Reid and Chris Ballard on the count-back system. Reid and Ballard also shot 64 but were adjudged third as they registered 33 strokes on the back nine, compared to 32 by their rivals.
