Stars and Stripes Trophy – results

The Stars and Stripes Trophy, since 1957

Notwithstanding the excessive heat and humidity, sixteen pairs took the field to compete for the Stars and Stripes Trophy, a handsome silver cup which had been presented to the RMGC back in 1957 by the American officers in Malta.

Although a mixed competition, same gender pairs were invited to participate in this Greensomes medal event; however without the possibility of winning the top prizes. Pairs’ handicaps are calculated [60% of lower] + [40% of higher].

The best score was returned by Catherine Milet and Mario Balzan Demajo with a nett 65, followed by Ann Macdonald and Richard Waterhouse with a nett 66.6. They each receive credits of €40 and €25 into their respective Prize wallets.

Catherine receiving the Stars and Stripes Trophy from the RMGC Captain

Victor Satariano and Danny Saliba won the consolation prize, a sleeve of balls each, for the best score coming from a same gender pair.

Catherine & Mario, together with Steve Dodd and Malcolm Keen, also won a sleeve of balls each for a Two on their respective scorecard.

Well played to all.

Victor Denaro, Captain RMGC

Malta v The Rest

With The Rest holding a slender lead over Malta going into Day Three, 16 Singles matches took place with Laurens and William Beck leading the way. William went on to win his match, and it was swings and roundabouts right to the very end, with Malta winning the Sword with a 5 foot putt from JJ Micallef on the 17th and the competition by collecting 16.5 points over The Rest with a total of 15.5, half a point short of retaining the trophy.

Some very good golf, some great friendly rivalry and many thanks to Nigel for refereeing, and thankfully not being overused, Mary Ann for the scoreboard at the back of the 10th green, all the hard work carried out by Phil and his team in preparing the course and of course Laferla Insurance and Dan Jon for sponsoring the event, and supplying a great lunch for the players.
