Doha Golf Club holds second Infiniti Monthly Open
Doha Golf Club held its second Infiniti Monthly Open on May 12. This month’s open was a Players Championship theme with an exciting floating green challenge after play for all participants.
The event was another great success with 124 golfers taking part, following on from last month’s equally successful Infiniti Masters Tournament.
Some excellent scoring was on show despite some tough pin positions and breezy conditions.
The Ladies Division was won by Jinok Kim with a wonderful nett 67 playing off a handicap of 36. Her round included four pars including one at the difficult 15th hole. Jinok finished six shots ahead of second place Beth San Jose.
In Mens Division 3, Andrew Muirhead came out on top with a nett 69 playing off a handicap of 22, including a 2 on the par 3 17th, which most of the players at TPC Sawgrass often struggle to do! Andrew finished 2 shots clear of a five way tie for second place.
Division 2 saw some exceptional scores, with the entire top 10 players finishing below their handicap. It was 16 handicap Su-Ung Jang who was victorious with a stunning 63 nett. Jang finished four shots clear of Peter Hope who will be disappointed not to have won with a great score of nett 67.
Division 1 was a much closer affair with only two players breaking par. The in form Ben Coleman was victorious with a gross 75 nett 70 to take a one shot victory over Arnav Jain. Ben’s win was his second in 7 days. All winners took home a Ping-Infiniti Golf Bag.
Following play all of the golfers had the option of taking part in the Infiniti floating green challenge. The target was a boat in the lake between holes 9 and 18 sitting 155 yards away. Dinesh Kumar managed to land his second ball in the boat with a 6 iron to take the spoils in an exciting challenge that will be back again in the future.
The organises thanked Infiniti and Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana group for their continued support and for another hugely successful event.
