Sri Lankan veteran golfer Anouk Chitty put up a pleasing performance to claim major honours at the Agora League Matchplay Knock-Out Championship worked off at the Royal Colombo Golf Club (RCGC) Course.

This event was conducted by the RCGC Ladies’ Section in an attempt to encourage female members to enjoy their golf with a flavour of competition and was worked off in two stages.

The first part was a round-robin stage where all the competitors were randomly included into four groups and each player competed against each other in their respective groups.

Thereafter, the points were allocated for a result in this stage, which was followed by the Knock-Out stage and the grand finale which was played on the final day.

The Knock-Out final was the highlight with the four leagues producing the Championship League, Premier League, Legends League and the Warriors League winners in stage two.

Anouk Chitty clinched the Championship League by having the better of Jin Park 3-1 while the Premier League was won by Manori Jayakody who defeated Ruvani Desinghe 2-1.

Meanwhile, the Legends League was won by Ahalya Rajan who overcame Danny Hameed 3-1 and the Warriors League was won by Niranjali Amarasuriya beating Shyama Perera 4-3.

This novel format produced nail-biting finishes in the tense Matchplay Tournament and the event was followed by a ‘knowledge enhancing’ session on the rules of golf presented by professional golfer Anura Rohana.
