Fourteen-year-old Shergo Kurdi has proved himself as one of the top 10 Arab golfers by finishing ninth in the 37th Arab Golf Championships held on the Ayla Course in Aqaba.
Shergo, the youngest player in the field, shot rounds of 73, 72, 75 and 77 for a four-round total of 297, impressive considering he was struggling with a sore back for the final two rounds.
The tournament ended in dramatic fashion with Morocco’s Dahmane Soufiane and Omar Ayoub both shooting brilliant final rounds of 66, but the former took the title from his fellow countryman.
Issa Abu Al Ella of Egypt finished third. The winner shot an impressive total of six-under-par, 282.
Not surprisingly, Morocco took the team event with Tunisia in second and Egypt in third. Jordan finished eighth from 11 nations taking part.
