Maciu Malo
Thursday, August 14, 2014

VETERAN golfer Gaffar Ali has secured his sixth golf title after winning the Tesla Product-sponsored stroke event at the Lautoka Golf Links on Sunday.

The 61-year-old golfer recorded a score of 48 ahead of LTA officer Vinesh Murti who settled for the second spot on 49.

Ali said the win had given him confidence to improve his performance and beat his younger competitors in future tournaments.

"I am grateful to win my sixth title for the year," he said.

"The win has inspired me to win more titles and to improve my game."

Ali said the tournament was tough as all top golfers were out to make their mark.
