Simís Captains Day
a great success
(KT Report) / 20 May 2012
Mike Simís Captains was well received by the 115 competitors that played in a Pro-Am Scramble format.
Each team consisted of four members and a PGA Professional from the region. Despite teams teeing off from the Black Championship tees for most of the tournament there was some fantastic scoring.
The quintet of Andy Matthews (EGC Professional), Johnny Aldridge, Steven Jones, Paddy McGrath and Cameron Bellman came out on top with a fabulous score of 57.2, a gross 60 over the par 72 Majlis course. All competitors stated their round from the blue tees, a birdie resulted in them dropping back a tee box and a bogey allowed them to come forward. The runners-up, by a slender 1.3 strokes, were Steven Deane (EGC Professional) Paul Byrne, Rory McDonald, Bill Ayres and Brian King following their 58.5. James Shippey, director of golf from Al Badia, captained his team to of Dave Duguid, Rohit Gupta, Gordon Wingate and Alistair McMillan to third place after signing for a tally of 58.6.
Mike Sims team (not eligible for the prizes) carded a fantastic 56.7 after great play from Tom Barry, Ritchie Sim, Mohsin Altajir and tour professional Ross Bain.
The day started with the final of Simbo’s skills challenge, this was the captain’s version of Big Break, which commenced in November with the top 10 making the final. In a keenly contested finale that involved a bunker shot, chipping challenge, putting, a 120yard approach and a lob shot it was Charlie Stricklin that came out on top with 56 points.
