The 16 best golfers in Panama will participate in the Tour Championship, which will be played in the match play mode, this weekend at the Santa María Golf Club field and which will define the champion of the season.

The three players agreed that this tournament closes one of the best seasons in this sport, thanks to the support and organization of the members of the Panama Golf Association (APAGOLF), led by Jean Pierre de Roux.

“This is the last tournament of the year and to get to this competition has not been easy, we have had to make an effort, in such a way that many players from other countries already want to come to play here, because they recognize the technical level and the organization” added Tejeira, who has his mind set on closing the year with a flourish.

Ordóñez, meanwhile, has also had a dream year, with great motivations, such as the birth of his second child, and focused on maintaining the rhythm of the game, without neglecting his family, especially in recent months.

The also representative of Panama in the LAAC has had great duels with Tejeira this year and sees him as one of the favorites to be champion. “This tournament I will play hole by hole, the match play should not analyze the keys, you have to play game by game, with a lot of concentration, because if you lose one, you are out, that simple,” he explained.

Lucca González, is 17 years old and is aware of the challenge she faces. “It is not an easy tournament, you cannot recover if you have a bad round, but I have been giving my best to meet my goals, one of them is to win this event,” he added.
