Tough times ahead in Tunisia

The UAE enjoyed a marginally better day at the Citrus Golf Course but are still way off the pace going into the final round of the Arab Championship.

The UAE enjoyed a marginally better day at the Citrus Golf Course in Hammamet in Tunisia yesterday but are still way off the pace going into the final round of the Arab Championship today.

Ahmed al Musharrekh shot the best round with a 76, Khalid Yousuf carded a 78 while Hassan al Musharrekh and Ahmed al Musharrekh signed for a 79. The top three scores count towards a team's score. The UAE team carded a combined 237 on Friday.

Hole in one caps a fine performance 

The Mixed Season Opener at Emirates Golf Club on Friday produced some fine golf over the Majlis course with the highlight a hole in one on the 120-yard 11th hole from Amarjeet Radia. 

It was her first hole in one and she was delighted to 'ring the bell' in front of the 108-strong field. 

The tournament was a shamble format with players playing their own ball following the preferred tee shot.
