BARBADOS - The Beacon Insurance Barbados Open.

Compliments of the Barbados Advocate

It's looking much like a final day confrontation between Barbados Hoerman Cup captain, James Johnson and the Irishman David Houlihan as the curtain comes down on the 22nd The Beacon Insurance Barbados Open.

Johnson shot a second-day high of three under par 69 on Saturday to draw level with the 23-year-old Houlihan on an overall gross 139.
"I putted well today, but generally it has been two days of consistent golf, " said Johnson, who had the day's lowest score.

Splendid weather, excellent fairways and fast greens at Royal Westmoreland Golf course, greeted the players Saturday.
While Johnson improved on his two under par of Saturday, Houlihan had a couple glitches in his short game, which was immaculate on the opening day. He shot 36 on either side of the course while Johnson shot 35 on the front and one better on the back.

Defending Champion Trevor Levine and Barbadian Carlsen Leacock recorded second-day declines. Levine, who shot two under on the opening day, struggled a bit for a five over par 77 , the same as Leacock. Leacock drove and putted well but did not reproduce the consistent form that landed him the St. Lucia Open recently. So Levine is third with a Gross 147, eight shots behind the leaders and two better than Leacock.

Nick Voss, a Hoerman Cup hopeful, shot 35 and 38 for a decent 73 .
Sean Edey did not have a good day, unlike last year s Beacon Open when he took on the seniors in a big way. Newton Daisley held his lead in the Men s First Flight with a Gross 90 or 172 over the two days. He is five better than St. Michael s School teenager Robert McGuire and Dawn Bispham (177 for the two days).

Robert Piggott eclipsed Cally Boyea by one stroke, shooting a pair of 40s for an overall Gross 156. Ricky Skeete was third with 41 and 45 , six shots behind Piggott.

While Claire Jordan opened a first-day lead of four shots in the womens championship flight, the Super Seniors proved far more competitive.
Goslin Griffith, the Barbados national player, stretched his lead in the Men s Super Seniors category to seven shots over Peter Whitehead with 44 and 37 which gave him 160 overall. Whitehead has 167 shots for the two days, while Tyrone Mapp, Jerry Castanheiro, Dr. Oscar Jordan and Dr. Robert Gaskin are in a group with either 182 or 183 shots overall.
Barbados player Jaime Hole came into her own with 76, which put her seven shots ahead of the field. Claire Jordan, a former Barbados player, shot 87 for an overall 165, one stroke better than third-placed Rae Muffin Johnson.

Jordan held a four-stroke lead on the first day.
