Maciu Malo
Tuesday, July 29, 2014

LAUTOKA golfer Abdul Jalal secured his third tournament title for the season winning the Telenet-sponsored 14-hole stroke event at the Lautoka Golf Links on Saturday.

Jalal scored 33.5 to claim the first spot ahead of veteran Gaffar Ali who finished on 34.5.

Most improved golfer Usaia Koroi stamped his mark in the competition to claim the third spot on 35 ahead of Vinesh Murti who finished on 36.

Koroi who started competitive golf early this year has fast established his name alongside top golfers with a magnificent performance during the competition.

And with Lautoka Open championship around the corner, Koroi will be the dark horse of the tournament.

Tournament official Ali said Koroi had been consistent in the past tournaments and would be the player to watch for the future.

"Koroi is learning fast and his performance speaks volumes of the hard work and sacrifices he has made over the past weeks," he said.

"He defeated some of the top golfers during the tournament and surely he will raise eyebrows at the upcoming Lautoka Open."
