STRONG SHOWING FROM SHERGO IN BAHRAIN
Nov 21, 2016
Jordan’s young teenage golfer Shergo Kurdi performed well with the big guns at the weekend’s King Hamad Trophy in Bahrain.
The 13-year-old shot an excellent opening round of 75 and followed it up with an even better 74 on day two to become the first Jordanian to make it to the final day of the competition.
He recovered from a disappointing opening seven holes on the final day to card a respectable 81 to finish among the top 20 amateur players.
“I felt proud to be the first Jordanian to reach the final day of the competition,” said Shergo.
Andrew Marshall from the UK won for the fifth time with a spectacular score of 14 under par. Kammalas Namuangrak from Thailand came second and topped the Amateurs division after shooting an amazing nine-under.
