POWERPLAY AT U.A.E
Abu Dhabi PowerPlay (L-R) Gary Marshall, Sharon Garrett, Ahmed Al Hendasi and Ken Graham
Contested under the stadium lights at Abu Dhabi Golf Club in Abu Dhabi, the first tournament of the Anantara PowerPlay Night Golf Series recently
drew participants from all over the U.A.E. The tournament’s unconventional
“PowerPlay” format is gaining in popularity with endorsements from golf-greats
like Gary Player, Graeme McDowell, Paul Casey, and Ian Poulter. PowerPlay is
contested over nine holes with two flags used on each green. Players score extra
points for birdie or better if they “PowerPlay” to the harder Black Flag. A last-hole PowerPlay birdie or eagle wins double points, and possibly the tournament.
However, failure to make par on the ninth spells disaster, with three points lost
for a bogey or worse on a final-hole PowerPlay. The format shaped an exciting
competition with Gary Marshall taking the first place prize by just one point.
The 2012 series will be held at Abu Dhabi again in May and June.
