Moroccan Bouchaib El Jadiani won the 47th Annual Saudi Aramco Invitational Tournament, beating Reid Perry on the first hole of a sudden death playoff recently at the Rolling Hills Golf Club in Dhahran.
El Jadiani birdied the 18th hole, holing in a 6-footer after a good drive and a 60-degree wedge shot, while Perry was short of the green on his approach shot and conceded the hole after his chip from the fringe was way off the mark.
El Jadiani and Perry both posted two-day totals of 163. Perry tied El Jadiani after 36 holes when the Moroccan player dropped three shots on the last three holes including a double bogey on the 18th.
Bouchaib carded rounds of 76-87 while Perry shot 80-83.
It was the second title in this prestigious tournament for El Jadiani, who managed to participate despite his busy schedule as the golf manager at Dirab Golf & Country Club in Dirab. On behalf of Dirab team, El Jadiani thanked the following: Tim Bella, tournament director; Ronan MacDonald, president of the club, and tournament organizers Minhaj Khan and Jeff Meisner.
Mohammed Al Noami finished in third place, one shot behind with a total of 164.
