XVI MATCH PLAY GOLF LAS AMÉRICAS

 

Hatem Jamil and Per Bruun, Medal Day champions


69 players played the Medal Day of the XVI Match Play Las Americas last Friday [individual strokeplay handicap]. The cut of every category was established at 16.5.

In the First Category, Hatem Jamil Derbah won the Medal Day thanks to having a lower playing handicap (6) than the second classified player, Lucia Blanco (7), who also did a great round (72 strokes). Hatem will be the first player in the 1st category in the playoffs starting this week.  Ángel Francisco Gutiérrez was the third classified (+1).

 

In the Second Category Per Bruun Klausen will be the first one in the Playoffs after signing a 73 scorecard, one more than the runner-up Roberto Cantero and two more than the third classified Alejandro Estevez.

64 players (32 in each category) will go on to the second phase, the Playoffs, that will decide the finalists of this sixteenth Match Play Las Américas, the most exciting tournament in the island's golfing scene. Tomorrow, Tuesday, we will announce the Round of 16.

You can check the ratings through the Private Area for resident players of the Canary Islands.

After the forced stop due to the pandemic, Golf Las Américas has reorganized the 2020 golf tournament calendar. The XVI Match Play Las Américas will be held next Friday, September 25th [Medal day], and the Qualifying rounds during the months of October and November

The names of the two winners [1st and 2nd handicap categories] will be immortalized at the main entrance of the Clubhouse. This is a tournament unlike any other that combines two modalities and a lot of emotion.

In December we will repeat the last year's experience with the Christmas tournament (Eclectic strokeplay). We extend the tournament from the first day of December until Christmas.
