FLAWLESS HERATY WINS AT SAHARA KUWAIT
With thoughts of his ailing father occupying his mind, Joe Heraty kept his composure to win the inaugural Sahara Kuwait Championship to win his maiden MENA Tour title. The 25-year-old Englishman closed with a bogey-free fiveunder 65 to finish at 13-under par, two clear of his compatriot Daniel Owen. But it was Heraty, whose father was diagnosed with a brain tumor last week, who took centre-stage with a flawless round to win his maiden title. “This is for you, Dad,” said an emotional Heraty. “It feels just unbelievable at the moment to what I have achieved. It was a tough week, but I managed to keep my emotions in check, made lots of birdies and didn’t hit any disastrous shots.” The MENA Golf Tour travels to Oman next week for the Ghala Open, to be held in Muscat from October 24 to 26.
