Dino Capsalis played fantastic golf, scoring 37 points and thus winning the Masters Cup by 3 points from Tony Philippou. This was Dino’s second major win of the year; he also won the Foundation Trophy in April. Dino has improved a lot since his first win. He is confident and very relaxed so much so that a week before the Masters Cup was played he volunteered a cut to his handicap from 24 to 20. Dino has to be applauded for his actions and serve as an example to others.

The Masters Cup was played last Wednesday 11th September at Canons Brook Golf Club, Harlow Essex. Taking part in the masters were 48 members of the Cypriot Golf Society. This event was sponsored by Lanes New Homes. Congratulations to Dino Capsalis for an excellent win.

Everyone arrived by 11.00am and after breakfast the captain Andrew Savva and his team teed off first. The golf course was in fantastic condition, a good test of golf for all abilities and very enjoyable. Everyone was very impressed. The Captains Charity sweepstakes raised £330.00.
