Al Merisi tops first day leaderboard | THE DAILY TRIBUNE | KINGDOM OF BAHRAIN

Bahraini golfer Khalifa Al Merisi emerged as the overnight leader after the first of three rounds yesterday in the third Bahrain Amateur Open golf championship, being played at The Royal Golf Club (RGC). Al Merisi carded a three-under-par 69 over the first 18 holes to take a three-shot lead over the rest of the field. His day was highlighted by an eagle on the par five 14th of RGC’s Montgomerie championship course, which he unfortunately followed up with backto-back bogeys on the 15th and 16th holes. He also registered three birdies on the front nine and banked on his strong start to take the top position on the leaderboard. Taking second place after round one with an even-par 72 score was Danish-French Viggo Sorensen, who had five birdies but also five bogeys. Mohammed Al Noaimi followed in third place four shots behind Al Merisi with a oneover-par 73. In fourth, two shots over par with a 74 was Sultan Al Hakam, while Fahad Al Hakam was fifth with a three-over-par score of 75. Four players were tied-sixth on the scores, finishing four shots over par. They were Abdulla Al Ya-qoob, Nasser Yaqoob, Khalifa Duaij and Abdulla Al Hakam. Nasser Saad
