Matthew Warner won the Ladbrokes Trophy last month on the fifth Med Golf tournament of 2017.

A total of 59 players took part in the tournament on the Alcaidesa Links Course in a brisk south westerly breeze to sharpen up everyone’s golf.

Matthew won the trophy with a very fine score of 40 Stableford points, one of four scores better than par. He also won two green fees on the San Roque Club Old course and scored many valuable points in the Jyske Bank order of merit.

The best performer on all the par 3 holes was Roger Griffiths with a gross score of 1 over par. The best team pairing by a wide margin were father and son pairing of George and Sebastian Desoiza with a combined score of 76 Stableford points. Sebastian also collected the longest drive trophy.

The best senior prize went to Dermot Keelan with a score of 35 points.

There were three contenders for the best gross trophy, for which every hole must be scored. Sebastian scored a very fine gross 79 but was beaten by his father George and John Hunter both of whom had excellent scores of 77 points. George took the trophy with a higher handicap than John.

The runner up in the Best Guest category was George Desoiza with a score of 37 points. The winner with 39 points was his ten year old son Sebastian who is showing real promise of becoming a force in the golfing world. Both George and Sebastian won a sleeve of balls and a year’s free membership of Med Golf.
