Sunday 5 November 2023, Dubai, UAE – The three winners of this year’s Luckiest Ball on Earth Grand Final will tee up alongside some of golf’s biggest names in the DP World Tour Championship Rolex Pro-Am event on Tuesday 14th November.
UAE amateur golfers David Warham (Jumeirah Golf Estates Club, 37 points), Misun Kim (Abu Dhabi City Golf Club, 39 points) and Hashem Shana’ah (Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club, 41 points ACPO) were yesterday crowned the respective winners of the men's, ladies and junior divisions of the Luckiest Ball on Earth Grand Final, at Jumeirah Golf Estates.
