Second big win for Gonçalo Pinto in 2011 and first national victory for Susana Mendes Ribeiro, at the Aroeira II course at Fonte da Telha.

Gonçalo Pinto wins Portuguese Golf Federation (FPG) Cup

Six months after becoming the 2011 Portuguese Amateur Champion, Gonçalo Pinto also won the FPG Cup after beating Tomás Silva, the 2009 winner, in the final. In the ladies division, Susana Mendes Ribeiro from Estela G.C. defeated fellow club member Mariana Martins to achieve her first nationwide win.

Gonçalo Pinto's recent was a rare feat: becoming the amateur champion and winning the FPG Cup - the two major amateur titles - in the same year. The talented Vilamoura G.C. player won the Championship in Oporto in April, and now followed it up with the FPG Cup at Aroeira II. His opponent in the 36-hole match-play final was Estoril member Tomás Silva, who lost to Pinto after going two down at the final hole.

Susana Mendes Ribeiro's maiden win against Mariana Martins was by 4 & 2.
