Marcopoto wins Golden Spitoon by two strokes - Morgan & Banks, Reader's Digest/MEDIA Open

Turner Broadcasting chairman Steve Marcopoto has won the 2000 MEDIA

Open, pipping Morgan & Banks boss Russell Yeomans and Cedric Marginedes

of Star TV by two strokes.



The event, jointly sponsored by Morgan & Banks and Reader's Digest,

attracted a record field of 75 golfers who revelled in the winter

sunshine at the Discovery Bay Course in Hong Kong.



It was a bittersweet day for Russell Yeomans. As co-sponsor, he was

instrumental in organising one of the most successful MEDIA Golf days

yet, and as a player he won the best net prize on the day with a round

of 74.



But a double bogey on the last hole robbed him of the chance for what

would have been a dramatic playoff against Steve Marcopoto, and Russell

had to settle for joint second place with Cedric Marginedes.



The other sponsor, Peter Jeffery of Reader's Digest, was also in with a

show but had to settle for joint third with five other golfers after a

messy finish.



The MEDIA Open has been an annual event since 1988 and was one of the

few industry events which had never been won by Steve Marcopoto. Now,

however, he can add the prestigious Golden Spitoon to his trophy

cabinet.
