Michael Buttacavoli wins DR Open
What a week! With the celebration of the first professional golf tournament hosted in Casa de Campo- the DR Open -it felt as if the entire resort buzzed with golf mania, even more so than usual! Yesterday following an impressive last minute come-back, on hole 72 and a three hole play-off, American Michael Buttacavoli was crowned the champion.
The excitement of the DR Open began last Wednesday May 14th, as the ProAm golf tournament teed off around the Teeth of the Dog with the participation of more than 100 local golfers and professionals. After a very exciting morning and what seems to have been the game of their lives, the Central Romana team of Juan Velasquez, Julio Zeller and Carlixto Gabriel playing with Nelson Ledesma took home the trophy awarded later that evening. Meanwhile also that same evening, Pete Dye, alongside the Casa de Campo resort, Cesar Rivera, Maximo A. Pellerano and Marco Midence “Moñoño” were inducted into the Dominican Golf Hall of Fame.
