A total of 22 qualifying events have taken place at 20 golf clubs across the UAE with over 1,000 golfers locking horns for their chance to take part in the Grand Final to win a spot alongside one of the European Tour’s top 60 players on the Race to Dubai at the prestigious Rolex Pro Am.
As if meeting golfing greats like Rory McIlroy, Open Champion Henrik Stenson and Masters Champion Danny Willett is not enough, a money-can’t-buy invitation will await the Grand Final winner as ‘the Luckiest Ball’ champion will get to enjoy an exclusive Championship Beach Party at Nasimi Beach, Atlantis, The Palm, which will be attended by all the players.
The winner also gets two VIP Hospitality tickets to watch the tournament at Jumeirah Golf Estates from November 17-20.
Nick Tarratt, Director of European Tour – Dubai said: “It is great to see this Luckiest Ball on Earth initiative grow each year amongst all the golf clubs in the UAE through the help and support of the Emirates Golf Federation.
“This three-month activation through qualifying rounds, the Grand Final and the ultimate winner’s prize energises the golfers in the UAE and directly and indirectly, it helps us connect with the 10,000 local golfers playing the game throughout the country.”
The Luckiest Ball on Earth Series has proved one of the most popular golfing initiatives in the region since it was launched in 2011 when Kevin Barrett of Arabian Ranches Golf Club won his spot in the Rolex Pro-Am.
