George Fitchet Claims his first SGSC Major Title
On the 4th of September Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club hosted its oldest major championship the 15th edition of the Summer Open Golf Championship. This year the event had a very welcomed new sponsor in the form of Gargash Autos who put up some fantastic prizes. A full field battled it out to be this years champion playing from the tricky black and blue tees in an individual stableford format. It was SGSC member George Fitchet who finally got his name on SGSC honours board by posting a very impressive forty stableford points. George found some form in a round that included two gross twos and a further six net birdies. George was delighted to walk away with a brand new Titleist TSi driver as well as generous vouchers from Gargash Autos. George won by a single points over Benjamin Lee who posted a score of thirty nine points and was unlucky not to be this years champion. Benjamin however still walked away with a Ping Golf bag and Gargash Auto vouchers. Winning a Titleist Duffle bag and Gargash Auto vouchers was SGSC past captain Mukti Rai with a solid score of thirty eight points. The gross division was won by Chris Cornwall on a gross score of thirty three stableford points, winning a ping putter and Gargash Auto Vouchers for his efforts.
As well as the main prizes there were several on course prizes provided by our sponsors, Nearest the Pin hole three and twelve was won by Mansour Almaazmi, our champion George Fitchet claimed nearest the pin on hole eight and seventeen. Satnam Kaur took home the prize on offer for straightest drive on hole four and thirteen.
