The World Final at Fancourt offered not only the perfect conditions, it also made for exciting sporting decisions. The teams from the Republic of China and South Africa were tied in the team ranking, in which the results of each country in the three categories were added together. Based on the countback method (over the last 36, 18, 9, 6, 3, 1 holes), Colin Montgomerie presented the winner’s trophy to the team from the island of Taiwan at the closing gala dinner.
In the Ladies category (HCP up to 28), Yingying Chung (110 net points) prevailed against Makoto Nagai (Japan, 108) and Dily Ng (Singapore, 98). In Men’s A (up to HCP 12), Anthony Struik (Australia, 100) won by a slightly clearer margin, fending off Jannie van Breda (South Africa, second place) and Kean Su Lem (Singapore), who both finished with 96 points. It was very close in Men’s B (HCP 13-28): In the end there were just two points between first and fifth place, the winner was Neil Cronin (United Kingdom) with 104 points.
