CHRISTINE Sookram played one of her best rounds of golf to win the Universal Airlines-sponsored Shotgun, medal play golf tournament at the Lusignan Golf Club last Saturday.

Sookram, who plays off a 14 handicap, has been working hard at improving her game and she is surely benefiting from her dedication as she also won the closest to the pin on the No.1 par 3 hole and was a close second to Raj Sankar who won the longest drive on the No.4.

Twenty-nine players teed off on a course that was quite fast on the fairways with generous pin placements on forgiving greens. Six players returned scores of par or better. D. Mangal and E. Shamshudin both had 70 while Jack Chin, John Tracey and Lester Alvis tied on 68. After the count-back, Jack Chin was adjudged the runner-up with John Tracey third. Sookram won with net 67.

General Manager Harry Bajan Persaud, vice-president Vishnu Mahadeo and Marketing Executive Mark De Freitas of Universal Airlines were on hand to make the presentations. The club's president, Mike Brassington, was very thankful to Persaud and Universal Airlines for their generosity and assistance in keeping the game alive in Guyana.

In return, Persaud expressed his company's gratitude for being allowed to sponsor the tournament and promised to support the club and the game of golf for as long as they can.
