Maciu Malo
Tuesday, June 10, 2014

LAUTOKA golfer Surend Pillay won his second major golf title during the Western Solar System 12-hole stroke event held at Lautoka's Golf Course over the weekend.

High after winning the Danny's Limited-sponsored tournament last month, the Carpenters Shipping supervisor recorded 33 net to win the event.

Pillay withstood tough competition from veteran golfer Gaffar Ali who finished second with 35.5.

John Krishna settled for the third position with 36 while Anthony Jones finished on fourth spot with 36 on countback.

Pillay also recorded the longest drive which contributed to his success.

Lautoka Golf Club member Gaffar Ali said Pillay would be the player to watch this season.

"Pillay performed well and has been consistent during the past four tournaments," said Ali.

"He has been impressive in the past tournaments and his two major titles spoke volumes of his calibre.

"He knows how to master this greens and it will be interesting to see his performance in the upcoming events."

Meanwhile, Ali has invited new members to join the club.

"We are targeting to spread the gospel of the game to the young people of Lautoka" he said.

"The involvement of many new players will make the weekly games competitive."
