International Golf News June 2014

Sun, 1st Jun 2014
The Madeira Islands Open this year was tainted by two most unfortunate events. Firstly, the sudden death of the popular caddy Ian McGregor on the ninth hole in the final round of play when caddying for Alastair Forsyth. Under the circumstances opinion is unevenly split as to whether the event should have continued with three players out of the 75 participating withdrawing from play. His good friend Alastair Forsyth for whom Ian McGregor had been working, decided to proceed in his round, stating: '.We felt this was what Mac would have wanted'. Secondly, the play had been reduced to only 36 holes due to the local bad weather conditions. Daniel Brooks won the event which was his first victory on the European Tour.
