The 1st Drive Challenge Madeira Circuit Tournament took place this Sunday at Porto Santo Golfe, with the participation of 24 young athletes from the Region’s golf schools.


The Palheiro Golf Club was present with 10 athletes and returned home with 9 medals.


Rodrigo Abreu, in the Under 18 category, had an excellent performance, being the second best classified strokeplay with +6 strokes, five holes at par, two bogey and two doubles.


In the Under 14’s category, André Gonçalves showed that he is a talented young man and won with +6 strokes, after having played four holes with par, four with one stroke up and one double. Also surprising was Maria Câmara’s second place, with +7 strokes and a birdie on hole 6, which she did in four shots.


In the Under 12’s category, Salvador Rodrigues once again showed that he is a young man with great skills. Besides winning his category, with +3 strokes, he made a birdie at hole 9, a par 3, which he did in two strokes. He also played five holes at par, two bogeys and a double.


Finally, in the Under 10’s, Qais Khayali and Matilde Câmara filled (respectively) the 2nd and 3rd positions in the strokeplay classification podium.


We would like to thank all the parents who make it possible for our young athletes to participate in these competitions away from home.


A special thanks goes also to PXO Golf Club and Porto Santo Golfe for, once again, having welcomed us in this sportive weekend.
