Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: An even-par second round 72 paved the way for Mohd Isa bin Abas’s victory in Kota Permai Golf & Country Club’s annual Club Championship.
On the back of that inspired effort, five-handicapper Mohd Isa swept to the top of the leaderboard at the award-winning club that is a Golf Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
Even though he could only manage a closing 82, Mohd Isa’s 54-hole total of 233 gave him a two-stroke winning margin from William Cheah.
With greens rolling at 12 on the Stimpmeter, the mens’ championship attracted a field of 108 that was cut to the leading 72 participants for the final round.
As well as winning a Titoni watch, Mohd Isa was presented with a Transview voucher and a TaylorMade putter.
Furthermore, the champion clinched a one-year endorsement contract as one of Transview’s TEAM PG Ambassadors, sponsored by Transview. Mohd Isa will be alongside elite golfers such as Danny Chia, Adam Blyth and Arie Irawanin in the TEAM PG stable.
Meanwhile, teenager Raeysha Surendran made a successful defence in the Ladies Championship.
With two rounds of 77, the four-handicapper ended two shots ahead of second-placed Doris Yee.
Loo Eng Neo, playing off 17, triumphed in the Ladies Nett category. Her 146 aggregate was two shots better than runner-up Mok Soo Moi.
Seven-handicapper Khoo Gee Seng emerged victorious in the Senior Championship. His 157 total was one shot in front of Johnny Wong.
Also in celebratory mood was Yong Kim Shoon. The 11-handicapper fired a hole-in-one at the par-three sixth in the final round to win a new LEXUS ES250, worth almost RM250,000.
