CHARLIE Bhaskaran stamped his dominance in the Lautoka golf circle winning the Nadi Foodhall supermarket-sponsored 12-hole Summer Cup stroke event at the Lautoka Golf Link greens over the weekend.

The Ajynl Electrical projects supervisor recorded a score of 32 to claim the first prize while club vice-captain Suren Pillay claimed the second spot on 33.

Veteran golfer Gaaffar Ali recorded 34 to win the third spot followed by Abdul Jalal and Prem Chand on 35 and 36 respectively.

Bhaskaran said the tough competition from his fellow golfers enabled him to win the event.

He said he was optimistic of battling and beating the senior and best golfers in Lautoka again this season.

"I am confident with my form on Saturday that I will definitely be a threat to the senior golfers and hopefully take out the Summer Cup title as well," said Bhaskaran.

"The competition was tough which made me perform."

Jeffery John won the first nine on 36 while Vijay Ram closely followed on second nine with 35.

John Krishna hit the longest drive.

Club president Vijay Ram thanked Praneet Prasad of Foodhall supermarket for sponsoring the 2014 Summer Cup.

Ram said the cup would be played for five weeks with lucrative prizes at stake.
