Fabulous five clinch places in Grand Finals
PETALING JAYA: Favourites and national trainees Nur Durriyah Damian and Chan Tuck Soon continued their impressive form to clinch the AmBank Group Faldo Series Malaysia Championship titles and qualify for the Faldo Series Asia Grand Finals to be held in Mission Hills, China, next March.
Joining them for the Grand Finals in China next year are Muhammad Wafiyuddin (boys’ Under-21) of Kelab Golf Rekreasi Universiti Utara Malaysia (KGRUUM), Hiew Alvin (boys’ Under-16) of Palm Resort Johor and Kelie Kan (girls’ Under-16) of the Malaysian Golf Association (MGA).
Defending champion Durriyah grabbed her second straight girls’ Under-18 title with an even-par 72 for a 222 total to finish two strokes ahead Hillferah Tan of KGRUUM at the Royal Selangor Golf Club (RSGC).
Tuck Soon, on the other hand, had his worst game in the final round when he shot a 76, after identical scores of 72 in the first two, but still managed to win the boys’ Under-18 title by seven strokes with an overall score of 220.
KGRUUM’s Ahmad Zahir was second after shooting a three-day total of 227 to move ahead of team-mate Muhammad Ridhwan (229).
