But, as the prize sponsor of the event, Marie passed her prize to the next best player on the scorelist, and that was Pierre van der Wouwer! Pierre is then the first oficial Tintin au Balaia Champion with a score of 22 points and received the big prize from the Beeckman’s and Balaia Golf Manager Maria José Pinto! Congratulations!!!
