Maciu Malo
Wednesday, September 03, 2014

A NEW winner was crowned at the Lautoka Golf Course over the weekend.

Underdog Benjamin outsmarted top Lautoka golfers to win the Captains trophy-14 hole stroke event with a score of 31.5.

He upset other top contenders such as Abdul Jalal, Gaffar Ali, Vinesh Murti and John Krishna to take out top honours during the competition.

Benjamin maintained his fine form to shrug off a tough challenge from Jalal who claimed the second spot on 33.5

LTA officer Vinesh Murti settled for the third spot with a score of 34 while seasoned campaigner John Krishna recorded 35 to finish on fifth spot.

Veteran Gaffar Ali and Jalal recorded NTP on the second and ninth hole respectively while Murti recorded the longest drive.

Ali said the tournament was evenly contested by the participating 10 golfers.

"Benjamin joined the sport three years ago and winning the title was a huge achievement for him," he said.

"He was brilliant throughout the competition and hopefully his win will motivate him to win other upcoming events."

Ali added the weekly competition would continue this weekend.
