Dubai: On one of the hottest and most humid days of the summer so far, Dalip Tripathi and Eddie Hesson shone in the July BMW Rivoli Monthly Medal at Emirates Golf Club.

Tripathi, the reigning singles matchplay champion, produced a remarkable performance over the Faldo course and returned a net 67 to clinch Division A (handicap 0-15) by two strokes from Eric Koeman. The highlights of Tripathi’s gross 76, four-over par, was a hat-trick of birdies coming on the third, ninth and 12th holes.

Eddie Hesson coped admirably with the climate by firing a gross 72, net 71, good enough to give him best gross of the day and third in Division A.

Hiromasa Tsuji took top prize in Division B (handicap 16-28) following his net 73. Madhav Nair claimed the runners-up place with a 75, one clear of Alex Wonyop Kim in third.
