After taking a first-round lead at the Kaanapali Classic Pro-Pro Championship with a 60, Eliot Gouveia and Eric Dugas of Makena Golf & Beach Club fired a 63 on Sunday to take the tournament title and $2,200 purse.

The duo finished the tournament at 19 under, four strokes better than Kevin Carll of Waialae Country Club and Kevin Hayashi of Hilo Municipal Golf Course, who finished at 15 under after shooting a tournament low 59 in the final round at the Kaanapali Royal Course.

“We knew we had to make a lot of birdies this weekend and play aggressive,” Gouveia said. “With the winds low, we knew there would be some low scores out there and we had to capitalize on every birdie opportunity we had — we couldn’t have any bogeys on our card, and we didn’t both days.”

Dugas hit a solid drive off the tee on the sixth hole that landed 165 yards from the flag.

Eric Dugas tees off from the fourth hole.

He went on to make a 15-foot putt for an eagle.

“The greens were rolling great,” Dugas said. “Eliot had just made a good sandy par, so that let me be aggressive and I was able to make the uphill putt –we play well as a team — we had a lot of opportunities this week and we were fortunate to capitalize on them.”

Carll and Hayashi kept the pressure on the winning duo as they continued to play stellar on the course.

“We had good chemistry together,” Carll said. “We fed off each other really well and we are so comfortable as playing partners. That makes for a gun game.”
