Monday, May 19, 2014

LAUTOKA Golf Club chairman of trustee Raymond Singh took out top honours in the Metabo Powertools 12-hole stroke event at the golf links yesterday.

Singh recorded a score of 37 to survive a tough battle from Summer Cup champion Abdul Jalal who finished on second spot with 38.

Singh was on song fully utilising the soft green to stamp his dominance during the competition.

He said the course suited his game style.

"I like playing on the soft green and if the course stays like this in next weekend's Western Open championship, I am hopeful of another good outing," said Singh.

"The competition was tough which motivated me to play smart.

"This win has set my platform for next week's Western Open tournament and I confident to maintain my consistency."

Singh said he was impressed with the standard showed by his fellow golfers during the tournament.

Usa Koroi scored 39 to finish on third spot while Charles Bhaskaran finished on fourth spot on 40.

Lautoka Chamber of Commerce administrator Mohammed Salim took out the beginners' catergory on 50 edging FNU vice chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand who finished second on 51.

Former Lautoka and national soccer rep Vinod Chand took out the visitors' category on 36.

Singh also recorded the longest drive on the sixth hole while Jalal recorded NTP on the second hole and former Lautoka Open champion Prem Chand also recorded NTP on the ninth hole.
