George Groves takes inaugural EDGA Dubai Finale title.


Golf College alumni George Groves for winning the inaugural EDGA Dubai finale. The Golf College’s first world number 1, who will be our next student to achieve world number 1 status?

World Number One George Groves held off the challenge of America’s Chad Pfeifer to win the inaugural EDGA Dubai finale.

The 36 hole event featured some of the world’s best Golfers with Disability and was taking place alongside the European Tour’s season ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai.

It was the second EDGA event taking place in conjunction with a Rolex Series event on the 2019 Race to Dubai after Groves finished second to Brendan Lawlor at the EDGA Scottish Open.

The Englishman has Erb’s Palsy, a condition which leaves him with 20 per cent strength in his left arm after a medical accident during birth, but that has not stopped him from rising to the top of the World Rankings for Golfers with Disability.

An opening 77 handed him a three shot lead and it looked like he might run away with things when he birdied the first in round two.
