Guenther Enters the Winner’s Circle With AESGC International Victory2 min read


Posted on: 4th Feb 2023

9TH AESGC INTERNATIONAL PRO-AM
AL AIN EQUESTRIAN, SHOOTING & GOLF CLUB, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
30 JANUARY – 03 FEBRUARY 2023

 

Christoph Guenther took the professional honours at the AESGC International Pro-Am at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club [AESGC] in UAE, after consistently low scoring throughout the week edged him ahead of the field.

The PGA of Germany Professional duelled in the desert with the PGA of Belgium’s Guillaume Watremez all week but was able to come out on top with a final round 68 for a -13 total.

“It is really, really good to win. It’s my second time here in Al Ain…I’ve worked really hard the last couple of months on my game so it feels really good to get rewarded,” said Guenther.

“I knew I was one ahead coming down 18 and I thought just go for it anyway. I’m not very good at laying up, so I just hit the best three wood of the week and knocked it on the green and two putted. I think my team really, really enjoyed it – Al Ain has got a real character to it and AESGC is just a course you are happy to play again and again. That’s why the team and I really enjoy coming here.”

Despite a week of rounds in the 60s, Watremez was unable to catch the eventual winner, but took second place on -11, followed by Erik Lindwall (PGA of Sweden) and Alex Wrigley (PGA of Great Britain & Ireland) in a tie for third at -9.

Watremez might not have taken the individual honours, but together to with his team of Benoit Pierlot, Philippe Van Durme and Michel Goffin, the team event was wrapped up in style with a total of 365 points. Just three points behind after four rounds of competition were the team of Kanatbek Kurbanaliev, Lee Vladimir, Dominov Ravshan and Elyor Akromov with 362 points, followed by Linus Netterlid (PGA of Sweden), Pierre Malteskog, Tomas Carlsson and Peter Öhlin with 339 points in third place.
