Lambros & Peterson secure win in Xerox Golf Challenge’s Kuwait qualifier
KUWAIT: Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge (XCGC) has concluded its 13th qualifying round at Kuwait’s Sahara Golf & Country Club on Saturday, 31st October.
From a full field of participants, George Lambros and Dave Peterson emerged as the winners. Joon Ho Bae and Ki Won Yoo took second place, while Wael Al Welayti and Fadia Emadi came in at third. All three teams finished the qualifying round with a score of 43, and the winners were selected by ‘Countback’ (a standardised method of deciding the winner of a tied game by awarding it to the participant with the better score in the later part. In this method, scores in the ‘Back 9’ then ‘Back 6’ holes were considered).
On-course competitions included Aramex’s Hole 8 Nearest the Pin, claimed by Mike Hewlett, Ecco’s Hole 14 Nearest the Pin, won by Meong Ok Cha, Crystal Gallery’s Hole 9 longest drive won by Sunny Kim and PWS’s Hole 13 Longest Drive claimed by Hyon Kyung.
The top three teams from the Kuwait qualifier join other finalists in the Grand Final which will be held in Ras Al Khaimah at the end of 2015.
