This weekend golf challenge!
Roger Beale who is preparing for the Canadian Club Professionals Championship, a tournament that he won two years ago.
James Johnson who is preparing for the Central American & Caribbean Games in Mexico. The CAC Games is the gateway to the Pan Am Games which is the only conduit that Barbados has to get a golfer in to the Olympics.
James appointed coach in the CAC Games, Denny Foster has initiated this match to create some pressure golf as part of their preparation to represent Barbados in their respective international events. To add punch and pressure to the match the players play for a purse! The purse, therefore, is BDS$500.00 per day funded by the BGA ($500) and private sponsors ($1,000). The grand prize will be raised through an increased pot fee during the week at Royal Westmoreland and Barbados Golf Club. The aim is to raise another $1,000. Whatever Roger wins as a professional he keeps to finance his trip.The BGA is the beneficiary of whatever James wins.
The tee times are as follows:
Friday, Oct 31: The Country Club, 1:20
Saturday, Nov 1: Royal Westmoreland, 1:10
Sunday, Nov 2: Royal Westmoreland, 1:30
It’s going to be really good preparation for Roger and James and should be good fun to watch on Sunday afternoon, in particular.
