Day two of the Constance Hotels Pro-am witnessed the drama of the first-ever international victory for a team from the Seychelles.
As far as the golfers themselves are aware the achievement of the team- Damien Hoarau, Eddie Micock and Jerry Jean-Baptiste, together with second round professional William Wiedner, is unprecedented for Seychelles golf at any level of golfing competition
In round one, they had scored 80 points in the gross competition playing alongside
Lianwei Zhang on the Legend Golf course
It was a total no other team had matched on either of the two golf courses.
They added 79 points on the Links course competing with Wiedner for a two-round total of 159 which earned
them a commanding 9 point victory margin over the field.
Their all-round dominance was proved by the fact that they scored more points than any other team on either course.
For the golfers, it capped an amazing week and they couldn't stop smiling.
Baptiste, the assistant professional at Constance Lemuria, was the star of the show,
making five birdies in round two, whilst Wiedner twice chipped in for birdie.
Hoarau said: “We've loved the week and the courses really suited us.
I'm so glad we made the journey.”
In the net competition Marie-Ange Moreau, Mireille Zerr and Miguel Seik Mamomady combined with professionals Gary Marks and Tim Thelen for a 36-hole total of 179.
