Da Silva finishes 4th in Irish Legends

Jun 25, 2023 | Featured, South Africans abroad

A closing one-under-par 71 on Sunday was good enough for Adilson Da Silva to take a share of fourth place in the Legends Tour’s Irish Legends at Seapoint Golf Club in Louth, Ireland.

The reality was no-one was going to catch leader Peter Baker of England, whose second-round 63 broke the tournament open. Baker closed with a three-under 69 to win by seven shots from Argentina’s Ricardo Gonzalez who had a seven-under 65 in the final round – and came nowhere close to wresting the lead from Baker.

Da Silva made two birdies and a bogey in his closing round, and finds himself in second place on the Legends Tour Order of Merit after playing four tournaments. He’s just fractionally behind the leader Baker, and well clear of third-placed Richard Green of Australia.

Keith Horne is in sixth on that Order of Merit after he finished in a share of 12th on Sunday after a closing level-par 72. Chris Williams closed with a 76 for his share of 12th, and is in 27th on the Order of Merit. James Kingston righted the wrongs of his opening two rounds with a closing five-under 67 lifting him to six-over for the tournament and a share of 34th. That puts him 45th on the Order of Merit.
