Rashid Hamood was victorious after a one-hole play-off as Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) hosted the most represented Emirati golf tournament in the UAE at Abu Dhabi Golf Club on the weekend.
With a field of 72 players, the 2016 President's Cup sponsored by HSBC was the largest Presidents Cup in history. The award ceremony was graced by Shaikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister for Culture and Knowledge Development, along with other dignitaries, including EGF board members.
Hamood shot rounds of 82-73 for an event total of 155, but 36-holes was not enough to decided this year's champion. After a one-hole playoff against Khalid Yousuf, Hamood made an impressive birdie on the 18th Hole (the first playoff hole) to hoist the President's Cup.
"It is an honour to win the President's Cup. To win this event that brings the entire national golfing community together means a lot to me. This is important because it has a strong impact on the development of UAE golf. I really stuck to my game plan this weekend."
