FPG CUP: Victory for Pedro Lencart and Leonor Medeiros

22 March 2021

In their first appearances in the finals of the Portuguese Golf Federation Cup - BPI 2020, Pedro Lencart and Leonor Medeiros did not miss the opportunity to win in the debut, in a 34th edition that took place at the end of October at Montado Hotel & Golf Resort, in Palmela.

The athlete from the Miramar Golf Club, 20 years old, defeated the Azorean Ricardo Garcia, from the Ilha Terceira Golf Club, by 4/3, while the representative of Quinta do Peru imposed herself before Ana da Costa Rodrigues, of Miramar, by 2/1.
For Pedro Lencart (Miramar), the first Cup of his career joins his third Championship won earlier that month at the Porto Golf Club, for a double in 2020 in the two ‘majors’ of the Portuguese amateur calendar.
Like Pedro Lencart in the men's event, Leonor Medeiros won in the Federation Cup - BPI the first time she reached the final, beating Ana da Costa Rodrigues (Miramar), on the 35th hole.
In the 36-hole final, Leonor completed the 18 morning holes 4 up, and by the end of the first 9 holes in the afternoon she was 5 up. But “Aninhas,” under-16 national vice-champion, only 15 years old, made a big recovery and ended up extending the match until the penultimate regulation hole.
