Doha Golf Club held its second Infiniti Monthly Open last weekend, with the theme of Players Championship.
The event, supported by Infiniti and Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana group, was another great success with 124 golfers taking part, following on from last month’s equally successful Infiniti Masters Tournament. 
Some excellent scoring was on show despite some tough pin positions and breezy conditions. 
Men’s Division 1 was a close affair with only two players breaking par. The in-form Ben Coleman was victorious with a gross 75 nett 70 to take a one-shot victory over Arnav Jain. Ben’s win was his second in seven days. 
The Ladies Division was won by Jinok Kim with a wonderful nett 67 playing off a handicap of 36. Her round featured four pars, including one at the challenging 15th hole. Jinok finished six shots ahead of second place Beth San Jose. 
Men’s Division 2 saw some exceptional scores, with all the top 10 players finishing below their handicap. It was 16-handicap Su-Ung Jang who was victorious with a stunning 63 nett. Jang finished four shots clear of Peter Hope.
In Mens Division 3, Andrew Muirhead came out on top with a nett 69 playing off a handicap of 22, including a birdie on par-three 17th. Andrew finished 2 shots clear of a five-way tie for second place. 
Following play, all the golfers had the option of taking part in the Infiniti floating green challenge. The target was a boat in the lake between holes 9 and 18 sitting 155 yards away. Dinesh Kumar managed to land his second ball in the boat with a 6 iron to take the spoils in an exciting challenge that will be back again in the future.
