Sharp Magazine Middle East (English) - - Man About Town | Dubai -

Ama­teur golfers across the UAE are rel­ish­ing the re­turn of the 2018 DP World Tour Cham­pi­onship ‘Luck­i­est Ball on Earth’ com­pe­ti­tion which gets un­der­way in Septem­ber. The in­no­va­tive series gives lo­cal play­ers the chance of a ‘once in a life­time’ golf­ing ex­pe­ri­ence along­side the Euro­pean Tour’s very best at the Race to Dubai’s grand fi­nale, which will be cel­e­brat­ing its 10th an­niver­sary in Novem­ber.

Last year’s win­ner Ghazi Au­rangzeb’s last minute de­ci­sion to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion paid off af­ter com­ing through the qual­i­fier and win­ning the Grand Fi­nal he teed off with France’s Mike Lorenzo-vera at Jumeirah Golf Es­tates. “I en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion on a whim and now I’m the cham­pion,” said Au­rangzeb. “I think it’s such a great series and in terms of be­ing an ama­teur golfer I think this is as good as it gets.”
