Double delight for Abend and Frith on final day of World Senior Golf Championships

Title delight: Team Bermuda members Vincent Frith, Jim Ferguson, Max Abend, Ed Faries and Geza Wolf.

Bermuda’s Max Abend and Vincent Frith savoured glory on the final day of the World Senior Golf Championships at the Silverado Country Club in Napa, California yesterday.

The pair won the finals of their respective matchplay events to cap a fruitful campaign for the Bermuda Senior Golfers Society team which was also made up by Ed Faries, Geza Wolf and Jim Ferguson.

Twelfth-seed Abend caused a shock, upstaging second seed Chip Burr, of the United States, 3 and 2 to claim victory in the CL Tutt Flight.

Not to be outdone by his compatriot, fifth-seed Frith then completed the island’s impressive double, securing another surprise success by prevailing 2 and 1 over third-seed Juan Ernesto Champsaur, of Panama, to claim victory in the Brinton Flight.

Meanwhile, Wolf and Ferguson were also in action yesterday competing in the 2 and 4 Ball Net events.

Ferguson and Alex Daryanani, of Panama, placed third in the 2 Ball Net event with a five-over, 77.

Wolf also competed in the 2 Ball Net event where he, and Joe Crouch, of the United States, placed sixth overall with a 16-over, 88.

Ferguson, Daryanani and R.A. “Tone” Lester and Ralph Hamm, of the United States, placed an impressive second in the 4 Ball Net event with an even par, 72.

Wolf, Crouch, Fisher Yu, of Taiwan, and Takayoshi “Jimmy” Kajioka, of Japan, finished three shots back in third with a three over, 75.

Anthony Scaggs and Steve Yelton, of the United States, won the 2 Ball Net event with a one under, 71.

Steve Reid, Edward Shobe, Steve Yelton and Anthony Scaggs won the 4 Ball Net event with a three under, 69 to complete the double for Team USA.

Earlier this week, the Bermuda Senior Golfers Society team placed second in the net division of the team event to earn the Japan Trophy, with Frith claiming the low net daily prize and Abend the second place low net in his age group.

Paraguay proved the overall winners of the Stableford event.

The two-day tournament, which has been contested in various US cities since 1958, featured more than 80 players representing Japan, Taiwan, Argentina, Panama, Canada and Bermuda.
