LAUTOKA Golf Club chairman of trustees Raymond Singh recorded his second tournament win taking top honours at the S K Davey Ltd-sponsored 14 holes stroke event at the Golf Links course on Saturday.

Singh finally found his rhythm when he carded a score of 49 to take out the title.

He also managed an eagle on the 18th hole to finish ahead of arch rival and former Lautoka Open champion Prem Chand.

Chand finished second on 50 while veteran Gaffar Ali and Anthony John finished third and fourth respectively on a score of 51.

Ali and James Krishna recorded the NTP prizes with vice-captain Suren Pillay hitting the longest drive.

"With FNU's partnership the course is in its best condition, thus the club is recording more participants in the regular competition and a vast interest being shown by the newcomers together with the FNU students and staff," said Singh.

"There will be a number of sponsored Ambrose events to be staged allowing new golfers to play alongside the club members."

Meanwhile, Akilesh Shiu Ram topped the beginners category on 62 followed by Gaya Prasad on 63 and FNU vice chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand settling for the third spot on 64.

In the Inter - FNU competition Tomu Kau won the men's division on 58 with Navin Kumar finishing second on 60.

Vuladra Vuaivalu won the ladies category oN 68 ahead of Camari Waikere second on 69.

Richard Eyre won the consistency prizes in newcomers category on 69.
