Gupta Dominates Ladies Division As Mogire Comes Back To Win The Junior Division

(Dubai, UAE) – On May 4th – 5th, 2018 the Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) held the 2018 EGF Order of Merit Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates. With over 55 elite amateur golfers in the field, there was a storyline for each of the three divisions.

The EGF Order of Merit Championship had representing divisions for Men, Ladies, and Juniors. The Championship was played over a two day, 36-hole, Strokeplay format, on the Earth Course of Jumeirah Golf Estates. A fitting end to the EGF Season to host the final event on the same course where the European Tour hosts its final event. The field was composed of the top amateur golfers in each division that supported and competed in the 2017 – 2018 EGF Order of Merit Season.

The Men’s Division ended in a thrilling fashion as Nathan Fisher and Arjun Guptan had to battle it out in a two-hole playoff. After both players scrambled for a bogey (6) on the daunting Par 5, 18th Hole, for the first playoff hole, Fisher bounced back for the second playoff hole, again on the Par 5, 18th Hole, to find himself with an easy tap in par for the victory. Fisher shot a 78 – 70 for a championship total of 148.
