A.G.C. staged  the "PETER WILSON" sponsored by Bhasin & Co on the last Friday before Ramadan. Play started from 7:00-7:30am and finished about 12:00, when the Tournament Prizes were presented  followed by Lunch. Peter Wilson was a long time golfer in Kuwait, who died on the golf course in Kuwait in the 1980s. As part of the Prize Presentations Shivy Bhasin explained this and there followed a somewhat morbid discussion on "How nice it would be to die on a Golf Course".
      The Competition was played using the "Bogey" format in which like matchplay every hole can be won, lost or halved.  Brian Macdonald won by 5 holes from Cha Myong Ok, Jim Russell and Bary Hao.  There were prizes too for Long drive and Nearest the Pin, which went to H.S. Shim and Mohammed Ikram respectively.
Such a convincing performance by the winner, resulted in an immediate handicap reduction from 20 to 17. The full results of the Competition and all the handicap alterations can be found on this website in the Tournaments section.
