Mruzek Masters 2014 Mercedes-Benz International2 min read


Posted on: 30th Jan 2014

PGA of Czech Republic Professional, Filip Mruzek, capped off a stunning performance at the 2014 Mercedes-Benz International Pro-Am supported by Abu Dhabi Sports Council, with a four-under par 67, to finish top of the leaderboard and take home the €4,000 first prize.

Mruzek’s final round 67 at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club, UAE, made it a hat-trick of sub-par rounds in the 60s, having led each day after a 68 in Round 1 and 66 in Round 2 to total twelve-under par (201) for the tournament.

“I feel awesome, it’s great. It’s been a great tournament – one of the best I’ve played in in my life,” explained Mruzek of his win.

“I had a great team with the three guys here this week, we played really solid golf, the course was awesome. The UAE is perfect every time I come here. I played three good rounds to finish twelve-under and I really enjoyed it – I’m really happy.”

Second place fell to the PGA of Austria’s Georg Schultes whose final round six-under 65 – the low round of the tournament – was not quite enough to advance him to the top of the leaderboard. A Round 1 70 and Round 2 67 culminated in a total of eleven-under (202) and a cheque for €3,000.

Great Britain & Ireland PGA Professional, Darren Bragg, performed consistently across the week with sub-par rounds in the 60s but finished two shots adrift of the lead at ten-under par (69, 67, 67 = 203), taking home the third place cheque for €2,050.

The Pro-Am Team Competition was won by Professional Henrik Engdahl (PGA of Sweden) and his team of amateurs Sven Behnsen, Alex van de Craen, and Jannis Kakakis with a total of 271 points (96, 89, 86pts).

Individual Professional winner, Mruzek, was also supported by a good team taking second place in the team event with a three round total of 261 points (85, 82, 94 pts), whilst the teams led by James Ferraby (PGA of Spain – 77, 88, 95pts) and Max Saluda (PGA of Poland – 85, 87, 88pts) tied for third-place with 260 point totals.

The week’s winners were presented with their awards by Nassim Mourani, General Manager of Eastern Motors, an authorized dealer of Mercedes–Benz, and Rashed Al Hosani, Acting and Other Sports Section Head of Abu Dhabi Sports Council, at the official tournament hotel, Hilton Al Ain, in the gala dinner prize presentation.
