2017 Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup Amateur Series Grand Final
The 2017 TAWGC concluded in spectacular style with the flagship Grand Final, hosted at the Titanic Deluxe Golf Hotel, Belek between Saturday 30th October and Wednesday 2nd November.
London’s Luke Eustace was crowned Champion after the two-round Grand Final at Titanic Golf Club, which was a tightly-contested affair with only 3 points separating the top 5. In the final round, the Englishman built on an impressive first round of 40 stableford points with a further 41 points, for a combined total of 73 points to claim the top prize by two points from Cape Town’s Warren Espey (40+39, 79). Zhan Ge, from Beijing claimed sole possession of third place on 78 points, following rounds of 40 and 38 points respectively.
Malta’s John Micallef shot 72 and 73 to take home the prize in the Best Gross category. John Hunt (New York) and Mia Tokuda (Tokyo), meanwhile, negotiated the tricky 11th hole to win the nearest the pin prizes for men and ladies during Round One.
In addition to the honour of being crowned Champion, Eustace, along with nine of his fellow competitors were offered the once in a lifetime opportunity of playing alongside leading European Tour Professionals in the Pro-Am of the 2017 Turkish Airlines Open. As the overall net winner, Eustace partnered former world number one, Lee Westwood, in the Pro-Am tournament.
