Golf: Meitar and Ben-Ami make the perfect combination

Amos Meitar and Doron Ben-Ami have won the honor to represent Israel in the finals of the world International Pairs tournament to be held at the famous Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland in October. Some 26 pairs competed for the prestigious opportunity in Monday's final qualification round at the Ga'ash Gold Club, . And the team of Meitar and Ben-Ami made the perfect combination for the Better-Ball Stableford format. Ben-Ami played exceptionally well contributing five birdies and three pars, with Meitar scoring six pars. The team of Yuval Harari and Dudu Tor needed to score a birdie on the 18th hole to force a play-off but they only managed to make a par and thus finished in second place with 45 Stableford points. Yuval Harari also played excellent golf, scoring 10 pars and two birdies. Third place went to the father and son combination of Avraham and Amiram Zantkeren on 44 Stableford points. Nearest to the pin prizes, sponsored by the Wine Center at Ga'ash, went to Laetitia Beck and Ron Uziel. At the completion of the tournament the winners were presented with their cups and prizes and the CEO of the Ga'ash Golf Club, Gili Peleg, said that Ga'ash would continue with the tradition of hosting the annual International Pairs Competition. Ga'ash Golf is especially proud of Inon Zadok who was chosen last weekend to be a member of the Israel junior golf team at the Maccabi games, Peleg said. Mike Ossip was appointed as Captain of the Israel Golf team at the games.
