Vitor is a Victor in the 5th Messinia Pro-Am2 min read


Posted on: 27th Nov 2021

PGA of Portugal and European Tour Professional, Vitor Lopes, birdied the last two holes on the International Olympic Academy Golf Course at Costa Navarino to claim a narrow 1-stroke victory in the 5th Messinia Pro-Am.

After first and second rounds of 66 and 70 on the Bay and Dunes courses respectively, Lopes was positioned nicely at the top of a strong international field in Greece that comprised of 75 PGA Members from multiple CPG Member Countries including Sweden, Germany, Italy and Portugal.

“It is always a good feeling when you win a golf tournament” Lopes commented. “The double bogey on hole seven certainly placed some pressure on my score today but I trusted in my approach and my game. To then go on and make birdies on the final two holes was just amazing and a great way to finish off an incredibly well-organised event.

“Myself and my team enjoyed such a fantastic environment here at Costa Navarino, both on and off the golf course. The new International Olympic Academy Golf Course at Navarino Hills opened for the tournament and it is unbelievable. It is certainly challenging but it combines a great layout with amazing views to make a great golf course. We cannot wait to come back next year.”

In solo second was Georg Schultes (PGA of Austria), who finished on a total of 206 for the tournament with scores of 67, 69 and 70 to fall just short of the 205 three-round score set by Lopes, with third position held by Turkish Professional, Ulas Karatas, on 209 (-5).

In the Pro-Am team event, Team Dooley (represented by PGA of Austria Professional Steve Dooley and amateurs Claudia Stritecky, Gerhard Komarek and Julian Komarek) also claimed a marginal victory, winning by 1-point with a strong final round finish on the Bay course to reach an unassailable total of 262 points for the tournament.
