7th Westford School of Management Sharjah Cup Press Release


Saturday 1st April 2017





Mr Max Hibbert representing Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club produced the golf of his life over the weekend of Friday 31st March and Saturday 1st April enabling him to be crowned the 7th Westford School of Management Sharjah Cup Champion for 2017. With only 52 golfers able to make the cut and play Day 2 the competition proved fierce as golfers stood in their professional friend’s shoes as they attempted to secure one of the 52 spots.


After day one Max found himself five shots back from the leader Mrs. Elsie Bruce from the Troon Montgomery Dubai who had posted an incredible day one score of 40 Stableford points. As day two’s play developed new leaders came into contention as day one’s leaders got off to a slow start and opened the door. Max’s steady start to the back nine confirmed his place as a serious contender for the 2017 as other competitors faulted under the days increasing heat. Max was able to hold his never and eventually took victory by a margin of 3 Stableford points over Day one’s leader Elsie Bruce. Taking third place in the event with and impressive score of 66 points for the two days was new SGSC member Xu Zi Ang. Xu has recently joined forces with Teaching Professional Chris Dennis at SGSC and will surely be part of many prize presentations in the future. 


The Ladies Champion went to Catherine Geskes (SGSC) a memorable two days in the sun allowed Catherine to walk away with the trophy. The 2017 Gross Champion over the weekend went to Namir Al Naimi (SGSC) who carded gross scores of 30 & 26 to claim the title over a whole host of names. The daily prizes were won by Robert Darrah for Best Net day 1 on a score of 36. Best Net on day 2 was won by Hassan Yazdi with 35 points. In the Gross division Best Gross day 1 was tightly contested and went to Ben Mulvaney with 29 points, day two’s winning score was one better and won by Sinar Suraj on a score of 30 Stableford points.
