Singapore: Mitchell Slorach fired two birdies in his closing three holes to cap an impressive four-shot victory in the third leg of the Singapore Pro Series Invitational presented by FTAG.

The 33-year-old Slorach, who held a two-shot overnight lead after opening with an even-par 71, made the most of home course knowledge over the Serapong Course at Sentosa Golf Club, a Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

A member at the award-winning Singapore club, Slorach closed with a one-under 70 for a winning total of 141 in the two-day event.

“I came in with no expectations. I played really consistently these two days and I am very happy to win on my home course,” said Slorach, who moved to second place on the money list with earnings of S$4,500.

Amanda Tan, the first woman professional to play in the final flight with the front-runners in this Series, registered a 76 to take a share of seventh place on 149.

“It was amazing playing in the last flight with the lads,” said Tan. “They came wearing their game faces and I had to strive to keep pace with their powerful drives and accurate placement. I had a good chance today but came up a bit short. Looking forward to doing better in the next one!”

Jesse Yap claimed sole possession of second place on 145, one stroke ahead of fellow-Singaporean Mardan Mamat, who carded two rounds of 73.

Yap leads the merit rankings by S$100 over Slorach while Gregory Foo, winner of the second leg of the Series, is third with S$4,200.

The fourth leg of the Series will be a four-day tournament at Tanah Merah Country Club from July 13-16, to be staged in conjunction with the Singapore Open Amateur Championship.

Daryl Low posted two rounds of 75 to emerge as the top amateur in tied-ninth place on 150. The field consisted of 18 professionals and six amateurs.

Organised by the Singapore Golf Association, the Series is managed by global sports marketing agency Sportfive, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
