Rai earns European Tour status from Road to Oman

MUSCAT: Aaron Rai capped an incredible six months with a third European Challenge Tour victory of the season at Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge, securing himself European Tour status in the process. There are now only 14 events remaining until the curtain closes on the road to Oman finale, between November the 1st and November the 4th. The season will conclude at the NBO Golf Classic Grand Final event at Al Mouj Golf.
The Englishman was ruthless on the final day at Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil, recovering from a rare early blemish on the second hole to open up a two-shot advantage at the turn before he pulled emphatically away from the field on the back nine.
If Rai ends up participating the 2017 NBO Golf Classic Grand Final, it will be his second grand final in the Sultanate. Rai finished T34 at three under par in the 2016 tournament, and he will be expected to improve in this year’s final at Al Mouj Golf.
