The drama reached stage 11 of the Professional Golf Ranking, the tournament that was held at the Zibatá Golf Club course, located in Querétaro and was decided in the playoff.

Norman Pearl, from Juriquilla, Querétaro, was the winner, beating the professional from Campestre de Querétaro, Antonio Maldonado, and his teammate, José Guadalupe Rodríguez.

After 18 holes played, Pearl, Maldonado and Rodríguez equalized with a round of 69 shots, 3 under the course which forced them to go to the 18th hole to tie the tie.

Maldonado and Rodriguez “missed” the green on their second shot, which opened the possibility for Pearl, who missed a birdie putt of just over 3 meters and up the hole. Both “Campaña” and Maldonado missed their birdie shots and took par, while Norman Pearl holed his birdie putt and with that he obtained his first title in the Professional Golf Ranking.

“I am very happy, a while ago I was close but the victory did not come. Doing it on a spectacular field, with two players as solid, as good, as Antonio (Maldonado) and Campana (Jose Rodríguez) is a plus. I am very excited and grateful,” said Pearl.

Alternately to the professional contest, a Pro Am was played, in which the coexistence between amateurs and professionals was highlighted, which is always positive for the Ranking, since in this way professionals get closer to their students.

In the Pro Am, the winning duo was that of the professional Armando López Ron and the amateur Oscar Olivares, from La Loma, who finished with 60 shots, 12 under field par, in the low ball format. In the second place of the Pro Am, three couples tied with 61 shots, just one away from the winners.
