Congratulations to Eliot Gouveia and Eric Dugas for winning the Kaanapali Classic Pro-Pro Championship this weekend! The duo finish with a 19 under to take the title. Runners up Kevin Carll and Kevin Hayashi finished 4 strokes behind with a 15 under.
The duo went into the classic with a plan of playing aggressive and making a lot of birdies. With winds remaining low throughout the weekend, they knew their competition would be strong. They remained focused on both days of play, enabling them to win the title!
Congratulations to you both again for winning the championship!
