Teenage Israeli star Laetitia Beck made a triumphant return to the local scene on Monday, leading the second qualifying round of the International Pairs tournament at the Ga'ash Golf Club with partner Dor Hacham. Beck and Hacham, who are both just 16-years-old, finished with a superb score of 45 Stableford points The 12 teams that qualified for the finals had to have scored at least 39 Stableford points in the pairs better-ball Stableford 75% handicap format. Beck, who studies at a golf academy in Miami, excelled and showed her tremendous potential by scoring nine birdies. Other leading scores were Amos Meitar and Doron Ben-Ami and the duo of Brian Cooper and Gideon Drimmer on 43 Stableford points. Nearest to the Pin prizes went to Gil Don and Yuval Harari. Meanwhile, the semifinals of the 2009 Knockout Tournament saw chairman of the Israel Golf Federation, Dr. Cyril Kaufman, beat the ex-chairman of the Israeli Tennis Federation, Dr. Ian Froman on the 19th hole in the "A" Division. And in the second semi Dani Hurwitz beat his good friend Danny Alon to play against Cyril in the final. In the "B" Division the much improved 14-year-old, Tomer Koren, will meet veteran golfer Harry Brodie in the final.
