Ritchie continues streak of success

Stewart Ritchie continues his bright streak of success with another smashing win to take the "A" Classic and the handsome Nations Trust Bank Trophy. Heather was overjoyed, moved over the moon and popped the cork of a bottle of Don Perignon with a few friends to celebrate his success adding a few juicy American sirloins towards the fun of the evening under candlelight.

Brilliant Gehan

Gehan Siribaddana was in smashing form from the first tee. Steady and superbly controlled off the tee he got exceptional when he reached the greens. He never was really in trouble at any time and appeared absolutely thrilled with his almost unmatchable 41 points. He won the "B" Division Classic and also the special award for the overall winner. He celebrated handsomely. Harin Udeshi who has been playing good golf these days came behind with 38 points beating Richard Abdeen in the count back. Srimath Perera, Kushal Perera and the newly elected popular President "the merry man" Ferrin Careem played hell happily.

Damindra stuns

The man on the flying machine Damindra Fernando came good again with an excellent collection of 37 points. Despite spells of turbulence he was sound and got past A.V. Rajendra who is still a raw rookie. Young Christo Dias was rocketing superbly and then got chaotic and untidy and had to move down the line to 3rd place. Ajith Goonewardena, H. Herath, P.A. Virasinghe and Kapila de Silva I understand are trying hard to forget their performance.


Ranjit Thabrew came back again after slight drought to entertain himself with an excellent score of 38 points. There was shock to his system but he quickly steadied his nerves passing through the 19th. Popular winner he got ahead of "Blackstone" Kalugalgedera by one point. Mohan Wickramanayake and Joe Perera were recorded in the "missing list".


Eighteen Ladies supported the Nations Trust Bank with Kumari Herath and Yvonne Abhayartne the "Duchess of Shady Grove" held together on 34 points, but Kumari's back division was more good looking and she was judged the winner. Sharma Perera, D. de Silva and Manori Jayakody strayed like hell and never found their way to safety. It was a great tournament superbly sponsored by Nations Trust Bank.
