Gibson & Kennedy Rise to the Challenge in Qualifier

Gerry Gibson & Rob Kennedy triumphed by 6 shots in the World Corporate Golf Challenge UAE Qualifier held at the Links on Friday 17th of February after posting a credible 64 points in the pairs combined stableford event.


Despite a methodical start to their round, Gibson & Kennedy relished the fact they were the favourites for the event, with their round gaining momentum from hole 5 onwards after a timely net birdie from Kennedy.


From that moment on the pair dovetailed to perfection, with a plethora of timely birdies being offset by net pars to keep a stranglehold on the field until they could finally relax in the sanctum of the Clubhouse knowing that they had succeeded through to the Grand Final in April.


The battle for second and third had to be decided courtesy of a card count back, with the pairing of Phil Madin and Alister Barker prevailing over Jeff Glasgow and Mike Sherman. Special Events on the day were won by the following players, Dr. Jey, Phil Madin and Ian Mansell whom all walked away with some lovely prizes courtesy of our generous Sponsors.
