Khalid Yousuf benefited from his vast experience of the Nick Faldo designed course at Emirates Golf Club to fire a gross 73 and 36 stableford points tally to clinch the Dubai Duty Free UAE Nationals Cup.

The consistent star of the UAE National Team started very strongly picking up birdies on the 1st and 3rd holes to see him out in 2-under par. Five straight pars followed form the 10th but a trio of bogeys from the 15th cost him three shots to the course resulting in a gross 73. His closest challengers were Tariq Al Suwadi, Faisal Al Sayegh and Saif Thabet who all carded 34 points. Tariq Al Suwadi clinched runners up place due to a better back nine holes with Faisal Al Sayegh taking third. Saif Thabet’s gross 76 gifted him the prize for the gross section.

Commenting on the UAE Nationals Cup, Salah Tahlak, Senior Vice President – Corporate Communications of Dubai Duty Free said: “The annual Dubai Duty Free UAE Nationals Cup has been running for 19 years and the tournament has grown quite popular with junior Emirati golfers as well. Thanks to my team at Dubai Duty Free and to the Emirates Golf Club, I hope to see you all again for the tournament’s 20th year celebration.”

The junior section witnessed Abdulla Al Qubaisi clinch top prize with a 29 point total. Also on the prize podium were Mohammed Darwish and Ahmed Al Mazrui for their performances on the nearest to the pin and long drive holes respectively.

Next year will see the 20th edition of the DDF UAE Nationals Cup with the sponsors hoping for a record turn out to commemorate two decades of this prestigious event.
