Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup names 11th qualifier winner

DUBAI, March 31, 2016

Ghazi Aurangzeb was named the winner of the individual stableford competition at the Grand Finals of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup, held at Emirates Golf Club, Dubai.

The 11th of 101 qualifiers for the global event, which has gone from strength to strength since the inaugural tournament in 2013, featured 80 players, all personally-invited guests of the airline.

Aurangzeb won the competition with a fantastic 45 points, holding off a late challenge from playing partner Hasnain Dar who had to settle for outright second with a creditable 44 points. Aliraza Khimji won a four-way card playoff for third spot whilst Ashok Sindhu took home the Best Gross trophy following his three over par round of 75. Meanwhile, Soumaya Salem and Sandeep Singh won the nearest-the-pin prizes.

Emre Ismailoglu, general manager for Turkish Airlines in Dubai said: “We would like to congratulate everyone who took part in the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup qualifier in Dubai. We are delighted that the tournament is continuing to grow in strength, and hope all our guests enjoyed the Turkish hospitality today. We are looking forward to welcoming Ghazi to Antalya in October.”

The first qualifiers took place in Dar Es Salaam, Mumbai and Doha in February and the 2016 series takes place across the globe, in destinations including Hong Kong, Great Britain, South Korea, Japan, China, Spain, the US, Portugal, Italy, France, Greece, Argentina, Brazil and Turkey.

The overall winners of the Grand Final progress to play in the 2016 Turkish Airlines Open pro-am, while all finalists are to enjoy a seven-night stay in an all-inclusive hotel. -
