Dubai: The defending champion Aryan Chordia was amongst a large field of low handicapped players aiming to become his successor at the Dubai Creek Junior Club Championship on Tuesday.

In a two-day tournament, Hyeonji Kang opened with a level par 71 which included a 3 under par back 9 to give herself a 2 shot lead over Kabir Nanda who opened with a 73, one ahead of the defending champion Aryan and Deborah Chang. Golfer Natalii Gupta was also in the hunt after day one with a score of 75 which put her 4 back of the leader.

Scoring was tight on the second day with Kang finishing up with a 73 to beat Nanda by one shot after his second round of 72 to claim the Championship.

It was a nervous start to the second round for Hyeonji who turned in 38 after 3 bogeys on her front 9, this gave Nanda the lead at the half way mark in round 2 as made the turn in level par in the second round.

Moving into the back 9 Hyeonji relaxed to finish up with a solid 1 under par to close with a 72 which included birdies on the 13th and 15th holes.

Despite birdieing the tough 18th hole, bogeys on the 10th, 12th and 16th resulted in a back 9 score of 37 for Kabir meaning he finished 1 back of Hyeonji in the tournament.

After battling for the lead all day Kabir Nanda claimed the runner up spot with scores of 73 and 72. Jacobo Fisas finished as the Boys Net Winner with scores of 73 & 71 for a 144 total, whilst Daksh Jain was runner up in the division with rounds of 67 & 83 for a total of 150.

Ailsa Brannock put together two good performances and was crowned the Girls Winner on a 146 total after rounds of 73 & 73.

The 2017 Dubai Creek Junior Club Championship was concluded yesterday after two days play from the junior members.

This prestigious 36 hole stroke play event is one of the most highly anticipated events in the Dubai Creek Junior Calendar and is the most sought after junior title. The Dubai Creek course was presented in stunning condition and proved to be a challenge for all players taking part.
