KUWAIT: Xerox Cor­po­rate Golf Chal­lenge (XCGC) has con­cluded its 13th quali­fy­ing round at Kuwait’s Sa­hara Golf & Coun­try Club on Satur­day, 31st Oc­to­ber.

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.
