Karan Seth and Vidur Sethi took the plaudits at the Indian Golfers Society’s ‘The Showdown on Earth’ at Jumeirah Golf Estates Earth course.

The Society's recent December fixture attracted a big field of 104 players, who competed in a Pairs Better-Ball format.

Seth (11) and Sethi (12) returned a 10 under-par net score of 62, with Seth scoring the equivalent of a net 72 and Sethi a net 70.

Highlights of their round included a gross birdie – net eagle by Sethi on hole 2, and his gross birdie with a shot on 16 for another net eagle.

Nines of 32 and 30 saw them take the top prize by three shots from Anand Lakhiani (15) and Vipen Sethi (10) who shot a net 65.

There was a three-way tie for third on net 66, with 14 teams all breaking net 70.

Guest of honour Indian LIV golfer and Dubai-resident, Anirban Lahiri, hosted a Q&A and assisted in presenting the prizes.

This was the number two qualifying event of four on the Race to Stratilia where the top 2 players qualify for an all-expenses trip to Scotland.
