Lirio’s tremendous display lights up OMA Emirates Medal

Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club: Joy Lirio fired a superb Net score on her back 9 of 31 to win on a countback over fellow lady member Hyeonji Kang in the second OMA EMIRATES Medal Championship.

Division A

In Division A, one shot separated the top two, the winner being the in-form Ishwar Jodha after a fine score of 72 whilst Jamal Saab was awarded the runner-up prize. Division B was equally as closely contested with Paul Rebeiro scoring a brilliant 71 to beat the runner-up Qais Qureshi by a single shot.

Best Gross

The best gross prize of the day was unsurprisingly awarded to +1 handicapper Michael McGinley after his five over par round of 76. In the Seniors Division it was Navneet Chopra who claimed the top prize for the second month in a row after producing an impressive two under par Net score of 69, whilst Hyeonji Kang, who missed out on the overall prize on a countback of the back 9, was awarded the first prize in the Ladies Division.
