Wales’ Simon Edwards scored a four-stroke individual victory in the 2013 Kempinski “The Dome” Pro-Am after a closing two-under-par 69 at Antalya Golf Club in Belek, Turkey.
Conditions across the PGA Sultan and Pasha courses at Antalya GC had been up and down all week, but Edwards managed to come through the storms unscathed, carding a one-under par 213 total (70-74-69).
Edwards made a solid start in the penultimate nine holes arriving at the 10th hole lying one-over for the day and two-over for the tournament. 
But fortune favoured the Welshman as he skillfully holed out from 123 yards for an eagle two, followed by six pars and a birdie-par finish to complete the 54-hole event as the only player under par.
I played nicely this week,” said Edwards of his winning play.  Obviously you have to play good to win…and it’s good to play against quality players and keep my game in shape – I’m a club pro so this helps to keep sharp.” 
Edwards continues his fine form from the 2012 season having also won in Turkey at the PGAs of Europe 2012 BEKO Classic not far down the road at Cornelia Golf Club…
I enjoy Turkey because of the quality of the courses and appreciate what you guys at PGAs of Europe, John Dent and Mustafa at BEKO all do. It’s great to get the full set out here, Beko, Callister and now here at the Kempinski.
Second place went to overnight leader representing the PGA of GB and I, Chris Baron, whose closing 74 wasn’t quite enough to keep up with Edwards, giving him a three-over par finish (69-74-74).
Two-shots back from Baron was the PGA of Sweden’s Jonathan Fransson, who closed his tournament with a two-under 69, equalling Edwards for the low round of the day, culminating in a five-over total for the week (73-77-69). 
The two-round Team competition culminated with Day 2’s low-scorer of the day, Chris Baron, leading his team of Andreas Martin, Nicola Just, and Professor Joachim Muller to victory in the four-ball better-ball tournament with a points total of 165.
