Gulf Weekly Ali to represent Bahrain in Turkey

Syed Ali will represent Bahrain in the finals of a major contest in the Turkish resort city of Antalya after winning the first-ever Bahrain stage of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup Tournament series.

Almost 100 players competed in the recent event held at the Royal Golf Club and computer teacher Ali won the competition with 38 points, ahead of runner-up Abdulrahman Alamar and Stewart Tankard in third place.

The ‘Nearest the Pin’ competition was won by Ali Amji in the men’s section and Hanar Albalooshi in the ladies contest. Hamad Afnan took the lowest gross score prize with 74.

“We would like to thank all of our guests who made the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup here in Bahrain a huge success,” Mehmet Can Taşci, GM of Turkish Airlines Bahrain, said. Ali, a Brit of Bangladishi descent, is an information and communication technologies teacher at St Christopher’s School. Winners of the qualifiers progress to the tournament’s sixth grand finals in Antalya in November, where they will have the chance to secure a place in the Turkish Airlines Open pro-am, and will fly Business Class with Turkish Airlines and stay at the five-star Titanic Golf Deluxe Hotel.

The Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup series has seen more than 8,000 invited guests competing in more than 100 tournaments around the world.
