RETIRED FSC worker Rajend Singh took out top honours in the Lonta Manufacturing-sponsored Ba Golf competition in Ba over the weekend.

The veteran golfer outsmarted his younger opponents to become the overall gross winner with a score of 72.

The 55-year-old was in top form to win his first major title for the season.

Asish Chand was crowned the overall bet winner recording 68.

Last week's winner Suni Sharma claimed the first spot with 70 net ahead of arch-rival Mohammed Sharif who settled for the second spot on 71.

Raven Kumar finished third on 73 and also recorded NTP while Kumar hit the longest drive.

Meanwhile, Singh is being tipped as one of the favourites to win in this weekend's competition.

He will be challenged by former champion Sunil Sharma and Raven Kumar to determine the winner of the event.

The competition tees off on Sunday with an entry fee of $7.
