Jose Luis Adarraga Gomez imposes himself in the “II Golden Cup of Galicia” final.
The final day of the “II Copa de Oro de Galicia”, had been played during the whole day, in the “Club de Golf de la Coruña”. The bad weather had caused the game to slow down in some of the 18 holes of the local field.
Sometimes the field of la “Zapateira” was covered by fog and the rain was also a companion of the finalists for some time. The first group commenced at 12.30 pm. From that time onwards, every 8 minutes and in groups of three, went starting all and each of all the seventy two finalists which started the competition. The three players with best results on Friday were the last ones to start: Miguel Diaz, Jose Luis Adarraga and Joaquin Nieves.
The emotion to triumph in this second edition was maintained until the last hole. Finally, the great favourite, Jose Luis Adarraga of La Coruña, triumphed after overcoming the 2 strokes of disadvantage with which he commenced on his Saturday play. He did not have it easy because Miguel Diaz of Asturias, from the “Club de Golf Castiello”, did not slack off at any time. At the end, Jose Luis won by two strokes.
The concluding play, followed by a great number of spectators, finished almost in darkness, which demonstrates the concentration with which the favourites had to play, taking almost 6 hours to cover the 18 holes of the La Coruña field.
With today’s victory Jose Luis Adarraga (A Coruña 1983) made good all the
predictions y won the “Copa de Oro de Galicia. According to the
