Back to Back Wins for Silva

Tomas Silva, who won back to back Portugal National Amateur Championships, repeated the feat with back to back victories on the Portugal Pro Golf Tour, producing another fine performance to win the Penina Classic, with rounds of 67 and 68 for an 11 under par total and a narrow one-shot win over Sam Locke and European Tour member, Ryan Evans.

At the halfway stage Silva trailed Locke by one shot and lead Evans by one but as the day wore on the positions ebbed and flowed and it was Silva who holed the winning putt.

Silva will now miss the third tournament of the Swing, at Palmares in order to prepare for his next tournaments at Dom Pedro Victoria (twice) and Pinhal, next week.
