Majed Al-Sorour, the CEO of Golf Saudi and the Saudi Golf Federation, commented: 'We drew this remarkable success from our country's great Vision 2030. The Crown Prince, Prince Muhammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, may God preserve him, has instilled determination, purpose, and mastery in the work of each and every Saudi, and this has brought brilliant results in every field. We, as Saudis, are very capable at organising international sporting events while fulfilling the best international standards. Our thanks and appreciation go to our leader in golf, His Excellency Mr Yasser Al-Rumayyan, who always leads our country to success.”
 “With regard to the precautionary measures and the impressive success achieved in implementing social distancing within stadiums and among participants. Golf will flourish everywhere as people have realised that it is a sport in which there is no room for friction, everyone is responsible for their own ball, equipment, and way between playing areas. It is therefore the perfect sport for social distancing.”

Al-Sorour concluded: 'Everyone shares in the success of the Ministry of Sports, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Interior. Their roles were effective and decisive in imposing protective non-mixing measures and accomplishing adherence to preventive measures.'
