The third and final round of the prestigious KHG Funds Senior Open golf tournament – which has MBL Financial as principal sponsor – takes place this Thursday [September 4] at Ramsey Golf Club. The Island’s premier Seniors event comprises three rounds – the first was held at Douglas Golf Course in July, and the second at Rowany in August. His Excellency Lieutenant Governor Mr Adam Wood will play in the final round which will be followed by a buffet and prize presentation.
Going into the final round, John Fenlon is the overall leader on 79 points, with Calvin Quayle second on 78, and Jim Cringle third on 77 – but in total there are 15 players who are still in contention for the overall victory. In the race for the overall ladies prize, Gwen Tuck is the current leader with 68 points, but she only has a one point advantage over Jackie Kinrade and Rosemary Corrin.
The 18th hole will also be used for a ‘beat the pro’ competition which will raise funds for Hospice Isle of Man. For every player whose shot beats the pro’s effort, Creechurch Capital – KHG Funds investment manager – will donate £100. Similar competitions were held in the first two rounds and £900 has so far been raised for Hospice. Mary Doyle, PR and Marketing Manager for Hospice Isle of Man, thanked KHG Funds and MBL Financial and all those taking part in the tournament for their continuing support and efforts to raise funds for the charity.
