At the Muscat qualifier of the tournament, which was played at the Greg Norman-designed Almouj Golf Course, The Wave, they finished as the top-two teams among a strong entry of 30 teams.

Tsarong and Riaz were marginally ahead of the pairing of Fauzi Adnan and Mohammed – scoring 42 stableford points to their rivals’ 41.

Third place was claimed by Steve and Avis Pickering with a score of 39, but that was not enough for them to book their spots for the Grand Finale, which will be played later in the year at Ras Al Khaimah.

On-course contests included PWS’s Longest Drive on the third hole, claimed by Tsarong, while Mohammed was the longest on Crystal Gallery Long Drive Hole, the 12th on the golf course.

Aramex’s Nearest to the Pin on Hole 2 was won by Pickering, while Ecco’s Hole 17 Nearest to the Pin was claimed by Greg Andreasen.

Sponsors of the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge this year include Prestige Wealth Solutions, Ecco, RAK Tourism, and Aramex.
