It was another great day of the Golf sporting event of the 2021 Deaflympics!  Final matches were played at the Caxias do Sul Golf Club.   The fans were nervous watching the competition.

Allen JOHN (Germany) captured his 2nd gold medal beating Russell BOWIER (Canada) in the final match.  What an awesome bronze match play that was won by Isaac MAKOKHA (Kenya).

Diksha DAGAR (India) managed to hold onto her lead all the way through the match and finally won her gold medal beating Ashlyn JOHNSON (USA). Yet, JOHNSON is just 15 years old and satisfied with her silver medal. Another young competitor, Margaux BREJO, 14 years old (France) was tied with Andrea HJELLEGJERDE (Norway) after 18 holes, and then they were forced to continue playing to break the tie. BREJO made an important putt at 21st hole and won the bronze medal.

Congratulations to the winners!
