Dubai Golf Trophy 2022

(Dubai, UAE) – On Monday 9th May, Emirates Golf Club hosted the final day of the 23rd Dubai Golf Trophy.  The tournament is formed by 16 of the UAE’s best amateurs against 16 of the UAE’s best professionals. Each team consists of 12 automatic qualifiers from the season-long UAE PGA tournaments and qualifying Emirates Golf Federation events across the UAE, followed by both team captains Michael Major (Professional Team) and Khalid Yousef (Amateur Team) carefully selecting four additional ‘wildcard’ picks.

The event mirrors closely to the format of the Ryder Cup, seeing two teams of 16 battle it out in team matches on Sunday at Dubai Creek followed by 16 matchplay singles on the Majlis course the next day. The competition has built a reputation as one of the biggest events in the UAE’s golfing calendar and the amateurs have been victorious in the last 6 meetings. Looking to reclaim the prestigious trophy, the professional team looked stronger than ever this year following a strong series of results in the UAE PGA events.

After day 1 the professional team were 1 point ahead of the amateurs (8.5 – 7.5). The biggest stand out of the day was a Hole in One by Nathan Kernaghan on Hole 14. The tight lead led to one of the closest and most dramatic final days in Dubai Golf Trophy history. Very early into the matches it looked like the Pros could face a complete whitewash with nearly all amateurs being up in their games. Yet the Pros fought back starting with a birdie down 18 from Sujan Singh to half his match with Max Burrow. Jackson Bell also fought to the end in a tight match with Craig Vance which saw both players awarded a half. Graham Forbes was the first pro to secure a full point on the final day, which also was Grahams third point of the week. Following Grahams win saw the professional team take consecutive points from the amateurs reinstating the points lead the team started the day with. Big wins from Ryan Smith another professional who won all 3 points, Oscar Yeomans and Louis Gaughan was enough to end the long 6 year wait for the professional side to reclaim the Dubai Golf Trophy.

Special congratulations to Toby Bishop and Yash Majmudar for winning all 3 points for the amateur team, Oliva Jackson for being the first female to compete in the Professional and Amateur Match and to Lea Pouillard, Ginger Delacretaz (Professionals), Jamie Rosalyn Camero and Liang Wei Lui (Amateurs) for competing in the Ladies Challenge Match which was halved after both teams earning 2 points each.

DP WORLD TOUR AND EMIRATES GOLF FEDERATION ANNOUNCE LONG-TERM UAE PARTNERSHIP UNTIL 2031

  • Partnership will enhance development of golf at all levels in the United Arab Emirates
  • Agreement includes minimum of two Challenge Tour events per year in the country
  • 30 spots per event will be given to local players to help expand professional golf
  • Tour will also support EGF junior development initiatives

The DP World Tour and the Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) today announced a long-term partnership aimed at developing golf in the United Arab Emirates for at least the next decade.

The two organisations will collaborate across all levels of the sport in the UAE, from grassroots initiatives right through to the professional game, building on the Tour’s long-term association with the region which dates back to 1989.

Today’s announcement includes a commitment to investing in a minimum of two Challenge Tour events in the country annually from 2023. There will be 30 spots in each of those tournaments allocated to the Emirates Golf Federation to help create playing opportunities and provide a pathway for Emirati golfers.

The partnership also includes an expansion of the Tour’s support of junior golf development in the UAE, working together with the Emirates Golf Foundation to help enhance its grassroots and player performance programmes.

The European Tour group, which incorporates the DP World Tour, Challenge Tour and Legends Tour, first visited the UAE in 1989 for the Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates Golf Club.

Since then, the European Tour group has enjoyed a strong and enduring relationship with the UAE, which was underlined last November when DP World, the Dubai-headquartered provider of global smart end-to-end supply chain and logistics solutions, was named as the title sponsor of the group’s main Tour.

Alongside a record total prize fund for 2022 and minimum purses of US$2million for each solely sanctioned DP World Tour event, that announcement also promised an enhanced commitment to grassroots golf, particularly in the UAE, and significant investment in the Challenge Tour.

Tom Phillips, the European Tour group’s Head of Middle East, said: “Our special partnership with the Emirates Golf Foundation not only demonstrates the DP World Tour’s long-term commitment to developing golf in the United Arab Emirates, but also reflects the strength of the many relationships we enjoy in the country.

“We are delighted to confirm this partnership following our four hugely successful weeks in the UAE at the start of the year, delivering on the pledges we made at the launch of the DP World Tour in November.”

General Abdullah Alhashmi, Vice-Chairman of the Emirate Golf Federation, said: “We have been working with the Tour for more than 30 years and with DP World’s involvement now with the Tour, it became even more important for us to work together for the future of golf in this region.

“This partnership will take us to the next level. Having two Challenge Tour events is an important part of this so we can exchange spots with other federations and take our players abroad. That is part of our vision to develop golf here and develop our players to compete in the professional game.

“Hopefully one day we will have a winner on the DP World Tour, but we need the gradual progress, and taking our players step by step through the Challenge Tour first is important. It will provide tournaments in this region to give players from the Arab world the chance to play at a higher level and compete against other players from different countries.”

Ahmad Skaik, the UAE’s Number One player and a product of the Emirates Golf Federation’s junior golf development programme, said: “This is a very important partnership. It is great that the Tour and EGF are working together to give us more opportunities and to inspire the younger generations.

“It’s very good for the region and I am very excited about the future. For me, I am going to try to take every opportunity possible and play as many events as I can to get better and better.”

Rafa Cabrera Bello, the Ryder Cup player and four-time DP World Tour winner, added: “I’ve been living in Dubai for more than six years now and I’ve been collaborating with the EGF on a number of different things to help to grow the game in the region. My door is always open to help.

“Over the last 15 years since I’ve been coming to the UAE with the Tour, I’ve seen the courses get better and better, the events get bigger and bigger with more and more top names playing in them. So, we are getting it right and it’s just a matter of time before we see a top player come from the UAE. They have all the facilities and infrastructure, and golf is becoming more and more popular with the kids.

“The EGF is trying to support that rise as much as possible and to have this partnership with the DP World Tour can only be a good thing and it will help grow golf in the region.”

This year, the DP World Tour will play five tournaments in the UAE in 2022, including three out of the five Rolex Series events.

Thomas Pieters and Viktor Hovland triumphed in the first two of these, winning the $8million Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and Slync.io Dubai Desert Classic respectively, before two consecutive events at Al Hamra Golf Club in Ras Al Khaimah – the Ras Al Khaimah Championship, won by Nicolai Højgaard, and the Ras Al Khaimah Classic, won by Ryan Fox – marked the Tour’s first visit to that Emirate, building on the Challenge Tour events held there from 2016-2018.

The 2022 season will conclude in Dubai from November 17-20 with the final Rolex Series event of the year, the DP World Tour Championship, which will become the Tour’s first event outside the Majors and WGCs to feature a US$10million prize fund.

Whirlwind Whittaker Storms to Faldo Series Middle East Title

(Al Ain, UAE) – Al Ain’s own Peter Whittaker saved the best golf of the week for the third and final round of the 2022 Championship with a stunning 61 gross (-9) taking him to an overall total of 200 (-10) and the overall winner’s prize. 

Boys under 18 & Overall Winner – Peter Whittaker

Peter started with 3 straight pars, followed by birdies on the 4th, 5th, and 8th and an eagle 3 on the par 5, 7th hole seeing him turn in 30. A par followed on the 10th, before an amazing run of seven straight 3’s to take him to -9 for the day, and with 2 holes to play a chance of joining the exclusive 59 club. Unfortunately, he could only close out his game with par’s on the 17th and 18th, but still, a fantastic round, and enough to lead the overall field and land the Boys under 18 division, and an invite back to the European Grand Final at the AESGC later in the year. 

The 2022 Champion had this to say after his victory “I felt I played really solid on day 1 but the wind made it tricky, but I was happy with my 71 total, the second day the wind dropped which made it easier, but I had to rely on my short game to get me out of trouble and scrambled well around the greens so I was very pleased to finish on 2 under for the day and stay in contention. Even though I didn’t feel my game was at its very best in the first 2 days, I was still going out today to try and take the overall prize, and felt in a great rhythm on the front 9 and hold some good putts to go out in 30. When I got to 7 under for the day after 12, I really wanted to keep it going and after birdies on 14 and 16, I even had a small thought of breaking 60 but it wasn’t to be, but still really happy with my 61 and to win the whole event. Looking forward to playing in the Grand Final in November and hopefully coming out on top again” 

Raghav Gulati (Dubai Creek), who lead on day 1, finished the event with a 1 over par 71 for his 208 total (-2) which kept him in the top spot in the Boys Under 16 division ahead of Victor Kofod-Olsen (Emirates Golf Club) with his total of 214 (+4) 

The Boys under 21 division had to be settled by a play-off, with overnight joint leader Jake Wiltshire (Els Club Dubai) and Edoardo Scialanga (Emirates Golf Club) ending up level with their 3 round totals of 207 (-3). Jake’s par on the 3rd extra hole was enough to win the division after Edoardo couldn’t manage to get up and down on the par 3 to keep the playoff alive.  

Girls under 16 Winner – Lara El Chaib

Lara El Chaib (Abu Dhabi Golf Club) kept control in the Girls under 16 category, from start to finish after closing out with a level par 70 to go with her previous rounds of 69 and 70 for her 209 total (-1). Second place in the division went to Jamie Roslyn Camero (Els Club Dubai) with her total of 218 after her final round of 72 

Not to be outdone by Peter, fellow Al Ain Equestrian Shooting & Golf Club member, Sakura Kawakami took the top prize in the Girls under 21 division and the runner-up spot in the overall standings with her total of 206 (-4). Her closing round of 66, combined with her opening rounds of 72 and 68 saw her improving as the event went on. Moving up 2 spots from her 4th place standing after 2 rounds, Lisa Wahlquist (Doha Golf Club), claimed second place in the division behind Sakura with her final total of 222. 

“There was some great golf played throughout the event, as the standard of golf here in the UAE continues to impress” Matthew Faldo, Director of the Faldo Series commented. He went on to say “Congratulations to Peter on winning this week with a fantastic score today of 61. Peter along with the other 4 category winners will be invited to the European Grand Final to compete in that, as well as meet Sir Nick here in Al Ain in November. I would also like to thank the whole team at Al Ain for this week, and it is great that the AESGC will continue to host our Middle East Qualifier and the European Grand Final up until 2027”

Excellent to have another strong field of over 60 players, representing 23 different nationalities, including the highest number of Emiratis we have ever had competing with 15 in total, which is a testament to the hard work of the Emirates Golf Federation.
