30 Apr

Fourteen-year old Barbadian Emily Odwin created history after being the first female in eighteen years to win the overall championship honours in the Sir Garry Sobers Festival of Golf which ended Sunday.

The defending ladies champion posted a final day gross score of one-over-par 73 to finish the four days aggregate on 300, an amazing 41 strokes better than her nearest ladies rival Julia Stephenson whose 83 ended her four days on 341, seven better than Pauline Raynor.

Another Barbadian teenager, Iz Hustler won the men's championship title, shooting one under par 71 on the final day to close on 304, five strokes better than Bobby Edghill whose best final-day gross of 70 still left him five behind eighteen-year old Hustler.

Elvis Medford rounded off the top three with 78 for 313 aggregate overall.

Adrian Sampson beat Bill Weir by two strokes to win the senior men's title while Tony Reid was a runaway winner in the super seniors over Tyrone Leong.
