Powerful finish helps Jalal

Maciu Malo

ABDUL Jalal came from behind to win the Foodhall Supermarket-sponsored Summer Cup title at Lautoka Golf Links yesterday.

Jalal who was trailing at the third spot after the fourth round last weekend behind leaders Prem Chand and Gaffar Ali, was in top form yesterday beating his rivals to win the tournament.

Jalal recorded a score of 32.5 to increase his overall tally to 64 ahead Chand who finished on second spot with 62 points while veteran golfer Ali finished on third spot.

Ali said the competition was tough but Jalal proved his class in the last round.

He said all golfers gave their best but it was the brilliance of Jalal that separated him from the rest.

"We all tried our best but Jalal was outstanding enabling him to win the last tournament and also the overall winner," said Ali.

"Jalal was given a good run for his money but he managed to withstand the tough challenge from other top golfers to win the title."

Ali said the five weeks of competition had brought out the best from all golfers.

He said many new golfers had also joined the sport over the past weeks of competition.

"The competition has laid a good platform for this year's competition and we are confident that Lautoka Golf Links will produce some wonderful golfers in the near future," Ali added.
