Maciu Malo
Thursday, May 08, 2014

VETERAN golfer Gaffar Ali started his golfing season on a high note winning the Toorak Electrical Services-sponsored 12 holes stroke event at the Lautoka Golf Course in the weekend.

Ali survived a tough battle from hot favourite Abdul Jalal to win the tournament with a score of 34 net.

Jalal finished second spot with 35 while Vimal Murthi claimed the third spot on 36.

Former Lautoka champion Prem Chand settled for the fourth position on 37 edging James Krishna on a count back.

Anthony John, Suren Pillay and Vimal Murthi recorded the NTP prizes with James Krishna hitting the longest drive.

Club vice-captain Suren Pillay has confirmed an increase in members with the return of former Lautoka and Vatukoula open champion Asish Kumar and Vinesh Murthi respectively.

The club also registered newcomers in Usa Koroi and Sanjay Sen.
