Skey Anthony and Marlon George outclassed a star-studded field to claim the top prizes in the Sir Viv Richards Birthday and Charity Tournament held at the Cedar Valley Golf Course on Sunday.

Anthony and George shot 10 under par, 60, to win the championship by a single stroke over multiple times national champion Omorry James and Otis Thomas.

The eventual winners were awarded two Taylor Made Sim 2 Drivers, golf kits, wallets, golf towels and other golf equipment.

For their score of 58, Wilston Charles and Daniel Cadet were declared the overall winners in the Net category, coming home ahead of Kaseba Silcott and Wesley Dyer.

Charles and Cadet collected putters and other prizes.

There were conciliation prizes for Tony Mourgue, Chris O’Boyle, Mike Duval and Garry Foxx for finishing at the back of the pack, while Paul Michael and Akeem Edwards were the longest drive and closest to the pin winners respectively.

The championship, which was organised as a fundraiser for the country’s frontline workers in the fight against Covid-19, saw over 70 players taking part in the 18-hole scramble event.

The tournament was sponsored by Indian businessman Rahul Patil and, during the closing ceremony, it was announced that US $30,000 has been raised from the event.

The money was split evenly between the Emergency Medical Services (EMS), the Antigua and Barbuda Nurses Association (ABNA), and the Antigua and Barbuda Medical Association (ABMA), each of which received US $10,000.
