John wins top spot

Maciu Malo
Monday, June 23, 2014

LAUTOKA golfer Anthony John took out top honours in the DHL Global Forwarding 18-hole stroke event at Lautoka Golf Link course yesterday.

John's superb performance has earned him a spot in the Lautoka team to play in the upcoming Theodore Cup tournament in Nadi.

Lautoka Golf Club chairman of trustee Raymond Singh will lead Lautoka which will include John, Prem Chand, Vinod Chand, Abdul Jalal, Asish Kumar, Vijay Ram and Jefrey Jones.

John stamped his dominance in the event when he shrugged off strong competition from other top golfers such as former Lautoka Open champion Prem Chand, Summer Cup round four champion Abdul Jalal, Danny's Limited-sponsored tournament champion Surend Pillay and last week's winner Charlie Bhaskaran to win the event.

He recorded 30 to become the new winner of the monthly medal event.

In the A-grade category, club vice-captain Surend Pillay finished first on 34 followed by veteran Gaffar Ali on 35 while Prem Chand recorded 36 to finish third.

Lawrence Benjamin took out the B-grade title with 38 followed by Abdul Jalal on 39 and newcomer Usa Koroi third with 40.

Vimal Murti recorded 38 to win the C-grade edging Wiliki Takiveikata on 39 with last week's winner Charles Bhaskaran finishing on third spot with 40.

Lautoka Chambers of Commerce administrator Mohammed Salim defeated FNU vice-chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand in the beginner's category. The duo finished the competition with a 40 countback

John recorded NTP (nearest to the pin) on the second hole while Surend Pillay also recorded NTP on the 9th hole. The longest drive was recorded by Raymond Singh.
