Home hero, Tomas Bessa carried on the good form from his win in San Lorenzo with a fine performance in the NAU Morgado Open, scoring an Eleven under par total of 208 to win by 3 shots from the Korean Lady professional, Jung Min Hong.
Just to be clear, Jung Min Hong played off the same tees as the men, which makes her performance even more spectacular.
After a fairly pedestrian first round of level par 73, Bessa improved his position in the second round, scoring a 4 under par 69 to trail the leader, Ollie Read by four shots.
Bessa really put the hammer down in the final round with 9 Birdies and just 2 Bogeys to race through the field and in the end win comfortably from Jung Min Hong who, by the way, is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the ladies game very soon.
The standard of golf played over the 3 days at Morgado was tremendous and the course condition and the hospitality shown to all the players was excellent.
We now move over to Alamos, for the second tournament of Swing 5 and are looking forward to some more exciting golf.
