Denis Rozhko and Milana Rozhko scored 48 Stableford points to claim the top spot in the 13th Qualifying Round for the International Pairs - Race to Obidos at Arabian Ranches Golf Club, Dubai.

The winner's card consisted of nines of 27 and 21 points.

Having started on hole 14A in the shotgun format with 46 teams competing, their round included thirteen net birdies and two net eagles on the second nine. They managed to complete their round with the only blemish on hole 17 with only a net bogey in the card.
