Algarve Golf News November 2013

Fri, 1st Nov 2013
The Portugal Masters held on the Victoria Course in Vilamoura enjoyed good weather but with some wind gusts over the weekend. The winner was David Lynn from England with a one stroke lead from Justin Walters from South Africa. On the last day he came from six stokes behind to snatch the win from a bunched up pack of several players all within reach of victory. Lying in equal third place was Stephen Gallacher, Paul Waring and Bernd Wiesberger just a stroke behind from Justin Walters. From the starting field of the six golfers in the Top 50 in the World Ranking only Jamie Donaldson from Wales was in the finishing top 10 at equal 6th place. On the Saturday Scott Jamieson from Scotland was just beaten in his magnificent round attempting to be the first player to break the magical 60 stroke mark on the Tour by scoring a worthy 60 on this third round. Unfortunately for the local Portuguese golfers not one of them managed to make the cut. The possible exception was the Spanish player Alvaro Quiros who is a previously winner of the Portugal Masters and has now taken up position of being the resident pro for the Victoria Course. He finished in a competitive 22nd position by unfortunately dropping shots on his last day. The Quinta do Lago North Course will be closing as from the 18th of November for a period of about 12 months whilst some reconstruction and improvements in maintenance are implemented. The Quinta do Lago South Course will continue operating as normal.
