He kept his cool on the back nine with a further 18 points, the only blemish coming at the 10th hole where he failed to trouble the scorers. Yakub’s consolation was victory in the Senior Division (50+) with his 40 points, three clear of Arabian Ranches’ Thomas Stumpp (7).
In the Super-Senior’s (65+) division, Emirates Golf Club’s Sultan Mahmood (16) triumphed by four points from Arabian Ranches member T.R Vijayan (17) who finished on 33 points.
