Lindwall Lands Troon Abu Dhabi Pro-Am Title3 min read

Posted on: 4th Feb 2022

PGA of Sweden Member, Erik Lindwall, took the 2022 Troon Abu Dhabi Pro-Am Professional honours after his final round 73 at Yas Links Golf Club sealed the deal, finishing on nine-under par [207].

The closing 73 was impressive at Yas Links, host of the HSBC Abu Dhabi Golf Championship just two weeks before, considering the challenging, windy conditions that the players faced on the final nine holes. But it was the second round eight-under par 64 at Abu Dhabi Golf Club that set the scene for Lindwall’s victory, ultimately giving him the buffer required to complete a solid final round.

“I am so excited – it has been a goal to achieve at this level and with some other really great Professionals in the event then I am so happy,” said Lindwall.

“We had so much fun here as a team, the three different courses are in such great shape. Going to new venues for each round when they are so good meant we really enjoyed it. I’m now going to the winter series for the Nordic League and it’s going to be really exciting and this is the perfect set-up for it.”

England’s Steven Tiley rallied for second place with a low-round-equalling, five-under 67 for lone second place at seven-under [209], followed closely by Saadiyat Beach Golf Club Ambassador, Gary Hurley and PGA of Israel Member, Asaf Cohen, sharing third place on six-under [210].

A special mention also goes to PGA of Austria Professional, Uli Wienhandl, who led Round 01 following an official course record of nine-under par [63] at the Gary Player Signature design, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club.

Irishman Hurley did find success in the Team Pro-Am event with amateurs Dorin Mateiu, Anca Mateiu, and Anca Pirvu, who were able to claim victory on countback with an incredible 264pts [-48] after the three rounds.

“We are delighted to win of course – three great days and it is always nice to play well,” said Hurley. “I think we dovetailed really well – I played well for the week but when I made bogeys these guys stepped in – for example the 25-foot birdie putt on the last was from Anca [Pirvu] was the reason we won. It has been amazing and everyone has looked after the team really well.”

In second place were the team of Tiley, Lyiubomir Minchev, Ilia El – Feleki and Stamen Stantchev, who, after a nervous wait in the clubhouse after their round, were pipped to the post by Team Hurley with their slightly higher scoring final round, with third place falling to the team of Uli Weinhandl, Clemens Weinhandl, Edi Posamentir and Johannes Theiss on 261pts [-45].
