May 25 marked the launch of The Bahamas Professional Golf Tour (BPGT) Series of Professional Signature Golf Classics. The excitement and tremendous energy that has been reinvigorated in The Bahamas for golf is definitely a positive step in the continued development of our local Bahamian golf community.
We return to the Royal Blue Golf Course tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. to close off the 2018 BPGT Series of Professional Golf tournament play.
The BPGT, through their monthly tournaments, were able to not only showcase their golf skills and talent but also had the opportunity to improve upon their craft through competitive and professional quality tournament play.
Greg Maycock, a seasoned golf professional, enthusiast and coach, heads into the tournament as the number one Seated Pro on the tour with a score of 2,300 points. He is also poised to take home the money leader prize. He hails from our second city of Freeport, Grand Bahama and commends the BPGT on their first year of professional tournaments. Maycock will return for the 2019 BPGT Series and we look forward to Greg hitting that Million Dollar Hole in One prize next year.
BPGT Chief Executive Officer and Director Riccardo Davis is seated at number two on the BPGT pro. He is close behind Maycock with a score of 1,700 on the BPGT leaderboard. Depending on Sunday’s tournament play, the outcome of the leaderboard pro championship can go one of three ways.
Coach Jim “Swing Doctor” Duncombe made an impressive showing on the BPGT 2018 Tour. After a disappointing pro second place finish in the fourth BPGT Classic featured at the Ocean Club Golf Course – the tie breaking showdown with Lemon Gorospe fueled a newfound spirit for Duncombe. He dug in and captured the first place pro division prize in the BPGT Halloween Classic on October 26 at the Royal Blue Golf Course at Baha Mar.
He heads into the Championship Tournament tied with Davis at 1,700.
Topping the amateur division BPGT leaderboard is Richard Gibson with 1,200 points. He was also the BPGT amateur division winner in the BPGT Halloween Pro/Am Classic. Peter McIntosh is following at a close 1,100 and is determined to bridge that gap tomorrow in a three-way race for the number one BPGT 2018 Amateur Championship spot.
Ryan Major is following closely in third place with 900 points and is sure to put out an impressive showing on Sunday. This amateur trio has truly showcased great golf skills and finesse on the greens during this 2018 BPGT Series and we look forward to more fine moments from the pros and amateurs on the 2019 BPGT Series of Professional tournament play.
