Bhaskaran in top form

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, June 17, 2014

AJYNK Electrical Supervisor Charlie Bhaskaran was back at his usual best taking out top honours in the Kishore Waterproofing-sponsored stroke event at the Lautoka Golf Links on Saturday.

He shrugged off a tough challenge from Vijay Ram to record 34 net and won his second tournament title this year.

Bhaskaran's first victory was during the Summer Cup round one competition in April.

He said the competition provided by his fellow golfers motivated him to work hard and to win the event.

"I was playing steadily during the Summer Cup but lost form in the last few weeks," said Bhaskaran.

"I have been training hard over the past few weeks to regain my winning form and I am happy with my performance.

"This win should set a platform for my future competition and I am looking forward to maintain this form."

Bhaskaran said his aim was to represent Lautoka at the upcoming Theodore Cup challenge to be held at the Nadi Airport Club.

Former Lautoka Open winner Surend Pillay and Abdul Jalal recorded NTP on the second and ninth holes respectively while Jones recorded the longest drive.

Meanwhile, FNU vice-chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand won the beginners category on 45 .
