Team Gorospe (Aidan & Lemon) wins the ALiv little BIG with a scorecard playoff against Team Pratt

“Team Gorospe (Aidan & Lemon) wins the Aliv little BIG with a scorecard playoff against Team Pratt (Chemari & Marcus).”

The 2018 Aliv little BIG was an even bigger success than the inaugural event in 2017. This year the event showcased 44 teams for a total of 88 players. BIGs from Freeport and Abaco joined in supporting the cause of the growth of junior golf. Thank you to Aliv for continuously supporting the growth of tournament golf for our young golfers.

This event brought together combos, which included child/parent, godparent/child, family friend/ child, juniors who needed BIGs, and BIGs who were willing to spend time and influence one of our upcoming golfers.

PLAY BY PLAY: 1st place vs 2nd place

Tied for first place, team Gorospe and team Pratt made a great showing. Both are father/child combos, and both juniors are amongst the top golfers in their age divisions. Playing together, the match was as follows:

Hole 1: Team Gorospe makes birdie to go 1 stroke Up

Hole 2: Both teams make Par; Team Gorospe remains 1 stroke Up

Hole 12: Team Pratt makes birdie to bring the match to All Square

Hole 13: Team Pratt makes Eagle to go 2 strokes Up

Hole 14: Both teams make par; Team Pratt stays 2 strokes Up

Hole 15: Team Gorospe makes birdie; Team Pratt goes to 1 stroke Up

Hole 16: Both teams make Par; Team Pratt remains 1Up

Hole 17: Both teams make Par; Team Pratt remains 1Up

Hole 18: Team Gorospe birdies, taking the match to All Square

Scorecard Playoff: Scorecard playoffs compare the scores on the hardest holes on the golf course. The first hole considered is the #1 handicapped hole. Both teams made Par on that hole. The next lowest handicapped hole is hole #15. Team Gorospe made birdie on hole 15, where Team Pratt made Par.

The Flag

Every event, we have tournament flags, which the kids sign. At the end of the event, the low scorer for the event takes home one of the flags, one flag is held for the event sponsor, and the final flag is retained by Fourteen Clubs Golf Academy and The Front 9.

Capturing the Event Flag with a team score of 3 under par is son and father combo, Aidan and Lemon Gorospe.

Our thanks go out to:

· Aliv - Our Title Sponsor for the event

· Sean Cracraft, Andy Deiro, and the staff at Royal Blue Golf Club

· The Junior Division of the Bahamas Golf Federation for partnering with Fourteen Clubs for this event

· Parents and volunteers for making another event a huge success
