It was amiable that 10 Indian Players were given the honour to play at Royal Golf Dar ES Salam, Rabat at the International Series Morocco. The serene beauty of Royal Golf Dar Es Salam is interspersed over 440 hectares of flora and fauna. 

Admirably located in the site of oak forests, this course is an astonishment of its kind: technicality, quality of the courses and the greens. Golfers and aesthetes find this place evident to the magic of tranquility. 
Getting the taste of the series, golfers got ready to try their hands on an exciting purse of US $1,500,000.

Day 1


As the sun Set on the first day it was the white US golfer Cole Madey who held the center stage with 6-under by the end of round 1. His best swing was at hole 8 where he got one monster eagle.  He birdied 13th , 17th and 18th.

Thailand’s Nitithorn Thippong shined like beacons through the fog to grab first position in a tie with Cole by the end of round 1 at international series Morocco today. The man brought in four birdies card in his front nine and then paddled his foot again to two birdies at the eleventh and the eighteenth finishing six-under (67). He still managed to remain in second position by the end of the second round, swinging one bogey on both front and back nine. 


Steave Lewton , Canadian star stood solo at the third position, one stroke behind the Thai boy in his total score as he finished five-under at the Royal Golf Dar ES Salam. On a day when scoring was a task after the first day, the second day was not as easy for the canada celeb as he dropped at T5 by the end of the second round. 


Sarit Suwannarut luck in Morocco continued to blow hot and cold. Using his birdie swings at eighth,ninth, fourteenth, sixteenth and eighteenth shot four-under. Apparently , the scoreboard for the second round didn’t seem to be very great for many golfers who were leading in the first round. 


The charismatic Danny Masrin finished round 1 with two bogeys, tieing forth in the tournament at the end of the first round. The greens were found to be tricky for this golfer , which led him to as low as 23rd position when the audience had a look at the scoreboard of round 2. 


American professional golfer Trevor Simsby teed from the first hole took a bow at the international series morocco with a six birdies. The 30 year old recorded two bogeys on the 6th and 17th.  He parred at 10 holes equally on his front nine and back nine and finished the round 4-under tieing 4th. 

Notably, Thai players seem to love International Series Morocco, their performance on the Asian soil have been noteworthy as Nitithorn Thippong, Sarit Suwannarut, Rattanon Wannasrichan, Sadom Kaewkanjana, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Poom Saksansin were there in the list of top 10 of International Series Morocco in the leaderboard of round 1.

From an Indian point of view, S.S.P and Aman Raj were the Indians who bagged 32rd position in the leaderboard of 2nd round’s final scores.

Arjuna Awardee Gaganjeet Bhullar found it tough moving upwards in the leaderboard of round 1 to which he stood at T43. He is an Indian star who began his career at Asian Tour 2007. 

Day 2


David Puig got a roller coaster swing of a front nine which he rounded off with four birdies at the very end to slide ahead of everyone into the sole lead after the second round. 

Richard T. Lee, who shot 72 on the first day to stand at 24th, had a great winning position to  stand at second place solely where he was one-over 73. He was one ahead of Kieran Vincent.

Three players including the two brothers- Kieran Vincent and Scott Vincent along with Scott Hend were tied third at seven-under after the third round, while other two including Thai’s Jazz Janewattananond and Erik Compton were tied-sixth.

The first round Co-leader Nitithorn Thippong dropped to shared twelfth place alongside Jaco Ahlers of South Africa at 3-under 70.

Tied30 and finished the round at Par 73 with a birdie at 6th and one on 15th. Bihari Golfer Aman Raj, who used to play in the Indian Team (under-19) stood at T38 at Rabat, finished one-over 74. Played well in terms of hitting on the greens with a total of 11 hits out of eighteen. 
Gaganjeet Bhullar , Viraj Madappa and Ajeetesh Sandhu all stood at T41 may be symbolizing the Indian thought of unity. 25-year old Indian professional Madappa, recently tied6 in the International Series England came this low in Morocco. 

Ajeetesh Sandhu got seven green hits in the front nine and finished the third round with one-under 72. 

Day 3
