The Oceanico Algarve Championship, an event on the PGA EuroPro Tour played on the Victoria Course in Vilamoura, was a huge success, in particular for the local players as two of them – old friends Angolan-born Antonio Sobrinho and Ricardo Santos from the Algarve - were in close contention as from the first of the three rounds. With no other challengers appearing from the chasing pack, and with the advantage of local knowledge, Antonio Sobrinho and Ricardo Santos went to the 54th and final hole with the former only one stroke behind on 12 under par. A playoff seemed imminent when Ricardo Santos drove into a fairway bunker but he recovered magnificently and, like his adversary, got up and down for a par to take the crystal-ware and a cheque for €16,250. Ricardo Santos made a strong move by birdying the 11th to 13th holes, and to his credit, Antonio Sobrinho clawed his way back with birdies at the 14th and 17th but just fell short. Northern Ireland's Richard Kilpatrick (Banbridge) finished in third spot at eight under par.

Steve Webster - (England) Portugal Masters Victoria Golf Course - Algarve - Portugal - 18th to 21st October, 2007 English golfer Steve Webster won the inaugural Portugal Masters, his second win on the European Tour, after shooting a Sunday 64 to win by three strokes at the Victoria Clube de Golf in Vilamoura, Portugal. This emotional win - especially in view of the untimely death of his mother five months previously - was only his second win in his 12 years on the European Tour, and projected him from 72nd to 28th on the order of Volvo Order of Merit. As followers of the PGA European Tour will have already learnt, 32-year-old Steve Webster was the worthy winner of the inaugural Portugal Masters played on the Victoria Course at Vilamoura. Although, the course was set up to challenge the players with taller clinging rough and fast greens, the rainfall on the Monday really only meant that the large greens were more receptive for the opening rounds. Combines with the warm sunny weather with little wind the result led to low scoring. In fact, and very happily for golfer Martin Kaymer from Germany, a new course record of 61 on the opening day was registered, whilst Webster's overall winning tally was an impressive 25 under par, and two strokes better than the runner-up, Robert Karlsson. There was a 4-way tie for 4th place on 19 under (Swedes, Peter Hanson and Fredrik Andersson Hed, Lee Westwood and Daniel Vancsik). Lee Westwood was in close contention until the par-5 twelfth hole where he went for the green in two but his ball ended up in the lake flanking the green and led to a bogey, followed by another at the par-three 13th. On these two consecutive holes Steve Webster followed with eagle-birdie and five strokes less than Westwood had scored over the same holes. Steve Webster's courage was to be admired on the par-five 17th hole in the final round. His long tee-shot onto the fairway was out-driven by his fellow competitor Robert Karlsson who at that stage was the only other virtual contender for the title. Steve Webster pulled out his 5-wood to attack the green which is defended by a lake in front and to the right. The gamble came off and he two-putted for birdie to go 26 under par. Robert Karlsson also scored a birdie, but Steve Webster retained his 3-stroke lead and had the luxury of playing safe on the last hole which he bogeyed to win by two strokes.   The national Portuguese players, both José-Filipe Lima and Tiago Cruz passed the cut. Tiago managed this in spite of a 2-stroke penalty in the 2nd round as he dropped his ball in the wrong spot. Lima was well placed in a tie position for 9th on 14 under par going into the final round, but a last round 73 including a lost ball left him in a tie for 21st with nine others, including renown stars such as Retief Goosen, Justin Rose, Nick Dougherty and Andres Romero. The total tickets sold for the entire event was 24,188, including 6,740 on the last day – a record for any golfing event in Portugal. In light of the success the organizers have announced that 2008 prize money will be increased by 25% to four million Euros!

WGC - Algarve World Cup in Portugal Victoria - Algarve - Portugal - 17th to 20th November, 2005 The Welsh Team composed of Stephen Dodd and Bradley Dredge beat both English and Swedish Teams by two strokes. The event had been shortened to just 54 holes due to bad weather. After the opening day better-ball, with England's Luke Donald and David Howell scoring a magnificent 59 - leaving Australia and surprise India team only one stroke behind. The 2nd round, played in the foursomes format (alternate shot), ended in a 3-way tie between Sweden, England and Wales. The Welsh team of Bradley Dredge and Stephen Dodd caught up with birdies on the final four holes, although, England scored three and Sweden two in that home stretch but this finish boosted the Welshmen's confidence. On the third day (which unfortunately turned out to be the last day of play), an eagle two by Bradley Dredge and Stephan Dodd's birdie on the par-five 17th with its semi-island green gave the pair a two shot lead, ahead of England and Sweden. A final round with these three teams battling it out for top spot, followed by a keen chasing pack comprising of France, Denmark, the Netherlands and Argentina, all within a handful of strokes would have been a fitting finale. However, a strong overnight storm that continued until about 11 a.m. on the scheduled last day, plus a poor weather forecast that denied the organizers any chance of a Monday decider. They had to cancel the last round and award the 'World Cup' to the Welsh pair, together with the full prize-money of US$700,000 each and the highest pay cheques they had ever received. Although, also regretting the forced inability to win over the 72 holes they and many other players felt that their victory was well deserved. Among the strong favorites perhaps only Argentina challenged for the leadership. A poor opening round 68 left their team nine strokes behind, but a record-breaking 61 for foursomes play on day two put them into contention only a stroke behind the leaders. Again in the better-ball format they failed to deliver, scoring only 67. Spain (Sergio Garcia and Miguel Angel Jimenez), South Africa (Clark/Immelman), U.S.A (Cink/Z.Johnson), and Australia (Hensby/Lonard) showed only few flashes of their normal brilliance throughout the championship. As the host country Portugal participated with PGA European Tour players, Jose Filipe Lima and Antonio Sobrinho. Their opening rounds of 68 and 72 left them initially trailing badly, but a spirited 3rd round of 63 with six birdies and an eagle in an 8-hole stretch earned them an equal 20th spot and ahead of Colombia and Venezuela.
Tue, 1st Nov 2005
