Maciu Malo
Sunday, March 23, 2014

JOHN Krishna continued his impressive performance in the Foodhall Supermarket-sponsored Summer Cup competition at the Lautoka Golf Links yesterday.

The seasoned Lautoka golfer who recorded a score of 23 is fast establishing his name as one of the hot favourites to win the overall Summer Cup title after maintaining his number one spot from round two to again win this weekend's round three.

But it wasn't a smooth ride for Krishna who was stretched to the wire by Jeff John who also recorded 23, but Krishna managed to win the competition on a countback.

Lawrence Benjamin was in third position with 24 followed by veteran golfer Gaffar Ali recording 24.5.

Former Lautoka Open champion Prem Chand is struggling to find his form and finished fifth.

Elated with his second win, Krishna said he had worked hard to maintain his winning form.

He admitted the competition provided by his follow golfers was tough but he didn't let it deter him.

"I am happy with my performance and I am glad to have continued my winning form from last week.

"The competition was tough which I believed made me work harder.

"This win has laid a good platform for next week's round three and I am hopeful of maintaining my form."
