Moti Sela won the "B" Division in the Ga'ash Golf Club Championships for 2007 on Friday. He had a gross score for two rounds of 176. Right behind him in second place was Itzik Edelman on 177. Steve Cooper won the best net score on 140 followed by Yoram Bernstein on 142.
In order to accommodate the nearly 100 golfers registered for the Annual Club Championships, the "B" Division was played on Thursday and Friday, 30th and 31 August.
This would enable the players to play under more relaxed conditions.
34 "B" Division golfers played in very warm weather conditions but in a more tranquil atmosphere. This Division consists of players with handicaps ranging from 15-22.
Sela, playing off a 16 handicap scored 87 gross on the first day and 89 on Friday. In the net competition, Cooper started off slowly, with a net 73 on Thursday but made great progress to score a net 67 on Friday.
The Wine Center at Ga'ash sponsored the prizes for "Nearest to the Pin" on holes 4 & 9. Hole 4, par 3, 120 meters was Haim Steinfeld was 2.52 meters from the pin. On hole 9, par 3, 160 meters came Moti Sela, 2.42 meters from the pin.
Basil Katz, Ga'ash Club Professional and tournament referee said: "It is obvious that it takes time to warm up.
The scores for the first day for the "B" Division were not great but improved substantially on the second day."
The Club is now looking forward to the completion of the Championships by the end of next week.
