  • Description

    GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND WON THE 72-HOLE WORLD AMATEUR GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE 'EISENHOWER TROPHY' AT THE RAIN SOAKED OLGIATA COURSE NEAR ROME YESTERDAY (SATURDAY). CANADA WAS SECOND TWO STROKES BEHIND.

    BRITAIN, STARTING THE DAY FIVE STROKES AHEAD OF CANADA, HAD AN AGGREGATE OF 895 STROKES. THE BRITISH GOLFERS PLAYED ATTACKING GOLF AND WITH MICHAEL LUNT SCORING 74, AND RODNEY FOSTER AND DONNIE SHADE BOTH TAKING 75 FOR THE COURSE, BUILT UP A SIX STROKE LEAD ON CANADA AND TEN ON NEW ZEALAND WITH TWO PLAYERS STILL TO FINISH.

    IN A DRAMATIC BID TO FORCE A TIE, CANADA'S KEITH ALEXANDER PLAYED BRILLIANT GOLF IN THE DRIVING RAIN. WITH NINE HOLES TO PLAY HE NEEDED TO COME HOME IN THREE STROKES UNDER THE 33 PAR TO DRAW LEVEL. HE FOUGHT SO GALLANTLY THAT HE REQUIRED ONLY A BIRDIE THREE ON THE LAST HOLE TO ACHIEVE THIS BUT HE MISSED THE GREEN WITH HIS SECOND, FAILED TO CHIP IN, AND HOLED OUT IN FIVE FOR A ROUND OF 74. THIS GAVE CANADA AN AGGREGATE OF 897 AND SECOND PLACE FOR THE SECOND YEAR RUNNING. NEW ZEALAND WERE THIRD ON 900.

    AMERICA'S CHALLENGE QUICKLY FADED AS THEIR PLAYERS CRASHED IN THE LAST ROUND TO TOTAL 908.

    MIN NA HSIEN, A 24 YEAR OLD TAIWAN AIRMAN, WON THE UNOFFICIAL INDIVIDUAL CHAMPIONSHIP WITH A 72 HOLE AGGREGATE OF 294 -- ONE STROKE BETTER ARGENTINIAN RAUL TRAVIESO.
