THERE ARE TWO NEW CHAMPIONS of golf in Barbados.

National player Carlsen Leacock slammed the contenders to win the men’s title in the Massy United Insurance Barbados Open, while Leiza Munn-Blakeley took the women’s equivalent at the Royal Westmoreland Club.

Going into the final day yesterday, Leacock held a convincing five-stroke lead after the first 36 holes and produced another impressive round to stave off his rivals on a rainy and pressure-filled day.

The champion, who previously won the Barbados Open in the 1980s, posted a three-over-par 75 yesterday to finish with a three-day gross 226, which was six strokes better than second-placed Roger Bostic, who shot 76 yesterday for a gross 232.

Third was Scott Stollmeyer with a 54-hole gross 233 and fourth was defending champion Julian Jordan, who shot 77 for a gross 234. (BB)
