MEG-STAR SUPPORTS THE 8TH MACAU GOLF MASTERS
Teams and individuals from 17 countries and regions, disputed Individual Skills (Level 1), Best Ball 9-hole Competition (Level 2) and Individual Stroke Play (Level 5) have been played hand in hand with more than 50 local Corporate Players.
Level 1 athletes competed in the Individual Skills Competition which consists of Short Putt, Long Putt, Chip Shot, Pitch Shot, Iron Shot and Wood Shot - and the winner’s trophy - was taken by Natascha Jane Tennent from Australia.
Level 2 – a two-round 9-hole competition was dominated by Harrison Werner and Alexander Pete Hayes.
Level 5 athletes took it up a notch and completed a total three rounds of 18-holes each. After the opening qualifying round there were signs of it being the toughest competition ever. The 2019 Macau Golf Masters saw a Cameron Pollard (AUS) taking the laurels sponsored by Meg-Star, while Lauchland Smith (AUS) and Warren Clark (UK) came in second and third respectively. A female athlete with ID from the Hong Kong – Nathalie Law, became the only the second female athlete ever to enter the top 7 of the Level 5 Competition.
The Macau Golf Masters proved, one more, to be an amazing success on multiple levels, attracting to Caesar’s Golf Macau some of the world’s best golfers with intellectual disability. The continuous growth of this event has generated a tremendous positive response, bringing together the business world and the local society of Macao. On a physical level, to compete with international athletes is key to the ultimate objective of enhancing inclusion through sport, and indeed the athletes performed extremely well: but this event, in particular, is much bigger than a physical ranking - everyone who attended the 2019 Golf Masters can be proud of his/her achievement!
“Once again, this year’s athletes put Macau firmly on the sporting map,” said Paulo A. Azevedo, President of the Charity Association of Macau Business Readers. “We sincerely hope that we can continue to enjoy the support of both private and public institutions and enterprises so that this major event can continue to demonstrate in no uncertain manner how Macau cares about not just some of its citizens but each and every one.”
