Almouj Golf Swiss Air Par 3 League Series 2 Final
With the previous 6 weeks of qualifying complete the final 10
assembled for the Series 2 Final of the Almouj Golf Swiss Air Par 3
Following the same format as Series 1, the League had run for 6
weeks with the players all competing over the Academy Par 3 Course
using 25% of their course handicaps, each week after play there was
a buffet served on the Academy Terrace followed by a prize giving.
As the weeks progressed the tournament began to gain moment as we
edged closer to the final, with some solid final rounds bringing
outsiders into the top 10. Once again the pressure mounted as the
two Business Class flights to Dubai courtesy of event sponsors
Swiss Air hung in the balance!
After prequalifying just 8 strokes separated the top 5 golfers,
proving to be a closely fought competition thus far, setting up for
an interesting finale! Regardless of prequalifying scores, all
competitors entered the final on an even keel with equal
opportunity to clinch the title. A three-way tie came in for
the second lowest net with all 3 players posting a net 26.
After careful consideration on the countback of the last 6, 3 and 1
hole nothing there was still nothing between Robert Daniel and
Johan Keyter for third place. The prize was eventually
awarded to Robert Daniel as the two names were drawn from a
hat. A birdie 2 at the 6th hole was responsible
for setting aside the third member in the tie Nick Smith, who took
second place winning on countback over the last 6 holes.
Favourite heading into the final after leading prequalifying, Lee
O'Donoughe did not disappoint as he recorded 8 pars and 1 bogey on
his way to a net 25, taking the honours and business class
On conclusion of play all competitors were treated to a
fantastic buffet served up by Almouj Golf's Head Chef Sadek before
the prizes were distributed, in addition to the Business Class
flights there were also flight covers and golf balls for the top 3
Many thanks to the on-going support of Swiss Air once again, and
look out for this fixture continuing later on in the year.
