HARRADINE MASTERS MEYDAN TO TAKE AGMC MEN’S OPEN TITLE
April 18th, 2017
(Dubai, UAE) – Meydan Golf welcomed some of the region’s leading amateurs to compete for the AGMC Men’s Open, Event 11 on the Emirates Golf Federation Order of Merit schedule.
With perfect conditions on Day 1, with barely a breath of wind in the morning, Michael Harradine broke his own Course Record by shooting 69. This resulted in a 3 shot lead heading into Day 2 from one of the UAE National Teams most promising talents, Ahmad Skaik. Coincidently, Harradine set the previous Course Record at Meydan on Day 1 of the same event back in 2014.
Day 2 commenced nice and early, with the final group starting at 7:50am. The Course was set up to test the field, with Tee Boxes and Pin Positions being amended, however there were opportunities for birdies to be made. The greens were in immaculate condition, something that everybody commended throughout the Tournament.
Harradine put together a solid final round of 72, level par, to finish with a 9 shot victory from current Order of Merit Leader Steven Kelbrick, Nathan Fisher and Ahmad Skaik. In the Net Division, Krishiv Tekchandani finished with a 148 total to claim first place, with Rakesh Shah taking second place after a countback from Ahmad Skaik.
During the Prize Presentation, Phil Dobson (Golf Operations Manager) expressed his appreciation to the Main Event Sponsor AGMC, Prize Sponsors Rivoli Group and Adidas/TaylorMade and Event Sponsors Valiant Clinic and Hartland International School for their support.
