Wednesday, May 14, 2014

SUREND Pillay won his first golf tournament this season when he recorded 34 net to claim the Danny's Limited-sponsored tournament at the Lautoka Golf Links over the weekend.

Pillay withstood tough competition from arch rival James Krishna who finished second with 35.5.

The Carpenters Shipping worker admitted tough competition from fellow golfers enabled him to win.

He said the title had given him confidence to maintain his winning form in the next tournament.

"I am happy to win my first tournament this season and it has inspired me to improve my game in the next tournament," said Pillay.

"It was a tough battle against my fellow golfers and I was fortunate to come out on top.

"This win will make me work harder for the next tournament."

Vijay Ram, who finished on third spot with a score of 37, also gave Pillay Krishna a good run for his money.

Ram recorded the longest drive.

Former Lautoka open champion Prem Chand finished on fourth spot with 38.
