10 August 2013Back

PGA Championship

With the unseasonably pleasant weather continuing and the mercury barely breaking 30 degrees the small field of players took to the Championship Course for a front 9 medal, on returning to the Academy Club House they each drew a player by lot who's back 9 score from Oak Hill on Friday was added to the front 9 score from Almouj Golf to give an 18 hole total.

Although the field was smaller than usual due to many of the Almouj Golf Members leaving Muscat because of the lengthy public holiday there were no less than 5 previous Monthly Medal winners competing, all keen to add one more win to their tally.

Playing in the first group of the day was the in-form Keith Harvey, Keith had previously put together a series of good results over the summer starting with a win in the 36 Hole Summer Open held at Almouj Golf in July. Despite dropping shots on both the par 5's on the front 9 Harvey's score of net 38 playing off a handicap of 13 was not to be beaten securing him yet another summer title.

When drawing players by lot from the second days play at Oak Hill it was Lee Matthews who benefitted the most by selecting Sergio Garcia who's back 9 score of 34 was added to Matthew's front 9 of net 39 to give him a winning total of 73.
