It was Tej Chhabra who came out on top by the narrowest of margins, his 39 points was matched by Ed Hesson and Suresh Shewakramani, but Chhabra’s better back six holes won the stableford event and the Luckiest Ball on Earth qualifier.

He will tee up with the other qualifiers from around the region on October 22 over the Fire course, with the winner of that event playing in the DP World Tour Championship Pro-Am on November 20.

The highlight of his round was a birdie two on the 166-yard par 3 fourth hole but the key to his success was a fantastic 21 points over the famous inward half of the Majlis course.
