Golfer Shergo Kurdi has brought his European form to the Middle East by winning the Arab Boys Golf Championships in Cairo, Egypt.
The 13-year-old finished on 219 after three consistent rounds for an incredible winning margin of 14 shots from Amine Haj Nasser of Tunisia, with Othman Berrada of Morocco in third.
Shergo shot rounds of 74, 70 and 75 to clinch the title for Jordan in style, setting a new Arab record in the process. Teammates Mousa Shana’a, nine, finished 18th and was the youngest in the field, while Abduallah Al Otaibi, 15, finished 20th.
The team event saw Jordan finish fifth.
Shergo has enjoyed an incredible summer where he won the Nike Rookie Tour in the UK for the third time in a row featuring some of the best young golfers in England, where he is based.
