Taba Pro Am Success

2011 Taba Invitational Pro Am, Taba Heights, Egypt.

In December Nick, Ian, Tony and I travelled back to Taba to compete in our third successive Taba Pro Am.  We left the UK full of hope and for the week ahead.

This year was the first Pro Am under the new guidance of David Lewer, Taba Heights Golf Resort General Manager.  

“The tournament was played on outstanding course conditions, fast greens and in challenging wind. The professional and competitive approach combined with the sportsmanship of all the players produced a truly successful Invitational.” David Lewer

Our week had a certain "deja vu" about it, we played nicely as a team for the first two days and then couldn't quite cross the line, we ended up 5th in the event which was great all in all, but dropping back a couple of places on the last day was a touch disappointing.  As usual Nick, Ian and Tony were great company (although we missed Tess) and they also provide a wonderful balance for our team.

Thank you guys, mines a beer with a coffee chaser!!!

In the pro individual this year, I managed to come back form a disappointing opening round to rally back with the leading score on day 2 and the second best score on the last day to finish second.  That makes it second for the 3rd successive year!  there is always next year :)

Adrian also took a team to the event and they played fantastically well to finish runners up in the team event, Congratulations to Asad Khan, Asif Padhani and Jamil Raja.  Adrian also finished 5th in the pro individual event.

Congrats also to Ian for winning the "nearest the pin" competition.

Here are some pics of our week

We are already looking forward to next year!!
