The 6,700-yard, par 72 course, wet due to heavy rains, turned to be tricky on both days.

“Winning is always a good feeling. The AVT tour is a brilliant step towards helping us senior amateur golfers play more consistently now for a goal. The senior’s tour has revived the competitive spirit and winning amongst some really talented golfers is a feeling that is worth being cherished,” said Dev.

Pushpendra ended up with a gross score of 143 with rounds of 71 and 72 respectively over 36 holes. David D’Souza, on the other hand, notched a total score of 145 with 75 and 70 respectively in each round, a media release issued here said.
