Dundalk Golf Club’s Brendan Lawlor qualifies for inaugural EDGA Dubai Finale
Dundalk Golf Club’s Brendan Lawlor is one of six leading EDGA golfers to have qualified for the EDGA Dubai Finale following his win in the German Disabled Open.
The new 36-hole tournament for Golfers with Disability will run alongside the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai at Jumeirah Golf Estates in November.
The world number four, from Louth Village, said he was “delighted to qualify for this year’s inaugural finale in Dubai,” and was “buzzing to get going.”
Following on from the success of the inaugural EDGA Scottish Open won by Lawlor at The Renaissance Club during the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open in July, the European Tour’s drive for inclusivity within golf continues as players will once again tackle the same course setup as the European Tour professionals at the final Rolex Series event of the season.
The EDGA Dubai Finale will be staged on Friday November 22nd and Saturday November 23rd at one of the European Tour’s biggest events of the year with six players from the World Rankings for Golfers with Disability (WR4GD) now qualifying and two wildcard invitations to be confirmed shortly to complete the field.
Winner of the EDGA Scottish Open earlier this year, Lawlor will be joined at the EDGA Dubai Finale by Englishmen George Groves and Mike Browne, Frenchman Charles-Henri Quélin, American Chris Biggins and Geoff Nicholas of Australia.
