Hitting a very impressive straight drive and winning the Straightest Drive Challenge was Lateifa Al Jassmey. Humaid Al Suwaidi came in Second Place.

Winning probably the toughest challenge of the day was Shahd Al Suwaidi who during the Flop Shot Challenge hit his ball over an 8-foot wall to two feet from the hole. Sultan Al Jassmey finished at the Runner-up for the Flop Shot Challenge.

“This Skills Challenge is a great team building activity that not only showcases the kids’ development but also gives the kids a fun competitive atmosphere. We wanted to host this activity to not only show our partners DP World and the European Tour that their National Junior Development Program support is still driving UAE golf development but many of the kids are starting to perform with some great skill. We look forward to tracking these players progress and continuing our partnerships while growing the game of golf within the UAE”, said EGF Secretary General Khalid Mubarak Al Shamsi.

The Foundation Squad will be back in competition next month at the March National Monthly Medal at Jebel Ali Golf Resort. In the meantime, these players will continue their weekly lessons at the UAE golf clubs and with the UAE National Junior and Ladies Coach Samir Wallani.
