West-Viru Champions are sorted

Champions : Kaie, Hans, Mart, Kristo and Zenta

The Summer seems to continue and so do various tournaments across the country. Past weekend offered the finals for the Estonian Amateur Open 2014 in Saaremaa and the President Cup at Niitvälja CG. Still there was one more little tournament taking place at Ojasaare Golf over Saturday and Sunday. It was the West-Viru Championship which gathered about 15 players. Never less the Sun was out there to ensure 2 prefect days of golfing and our champions got sorted. From the ladies Kaie Kender took the lead by 28 shots over Zenta Lood on the day1 and claimed the Gold with a result of  82-79. Zenta collected her Silver medal by 110 -115. The best of men was Mart Suursu by 66-71, leaving  our golf commentator Kristo Raudam and Hans Ilves for a sudden-death playoff, from who Hans took the silver.  I must admit the Day 2 was well interesting to follow. Although Mart was leading by comfortable 7 strokes after the first round,  3 golfers after him were sharing places 2-4 , all by 73 ! Unfortunately Kristjan Jaakma dropped from the 2nd position and Alar Palmar remained the 4th but the best game on day2 was played by Hans Ilves who came from the 5th position with 75 strokes to claim the Silver medal.

A special thanx goes to the host of the Championship 2014 Jaan Lipsmäe who has grown his home-made pitch & putt golf course from 4 to 7 holes this year and is likely to bring on the island green by the end of the season. I must say that Ojasaare is the perfect spot of practice for biginners and also for all those golfers who need to learn how to pitch their ball across the waters ;)
