International Cup supported by BMW & Rigid Final

Asia & Middle East Claim 1st International Cup in Dramatic Style

Team Middle East & Asia with their Captain, Rajesh Chitti holding the International Cup

Sharjah Golf and Shooting clubs newest event and possibly the most popular event on the calendar the International Cup supported by BMW and Rigid Industries came to a close on Saturday 6th of Feb. The event had four qualifying rounds with all participants hoping to represent their team in the final. Teams of America, Europe and Africa will battle it out against Asia and The Middle East in a twenty-seven hole Ryder Cup-style final. With twenty-four spots in each team up for grabs in the final golfers were delighted to make their respected teams.

With a mixture of members and non-members in both teams and both sides fielding a very strong line up it was almost impossible to name a favorite before the day. Playing 18 holes in the morning the teams played better ball matchplay for their first nine and then on to the tricky foursomes format for the back nine. After the morning 18 it could not be closer both teams won six points each so we were tied going into the afternoon singles. Each player faced nine-hole singles match against their opponents and with twenty-four spots up for grabs, it was certainly all to play for. Half way through the afternoon singles it was looking like it was destined to be a close affair, however, the resilience of Asia and the Middle East pulled through to claim the 1st International Cup by a score of 15.5 versus 10.5.

The event and the final day was highly praised by all golfers who are already eager to make sure they secure their spot for next year’s final. Some great golf was produced on the day and was great to see some real competitiveness but as always played in a wonderful manner.
