Singapore: Laguna National Golf Resort Club continues to be a happy hunting ground for Shannon Tan.

On the back of a record-breaking 36-hole score of 10-under-par (68, 66) over the award-winning Singapore club’s Masters Course, the 17-year-old swept to victory in the Open Girls’ Division at the EFG Singapore Junior Masters.

Although Tan signed off with a closing 77, the Singaporean ended six shots ahead of Samantha Dizon from the Philippines, who carded a 67 to take second place.

“This is my second win at Laguna National this year. It’s my happy winning ground,” said Tan, who won June’s inaugural CarTimes Singapore Junior Development Tour Championship at Laguna National, a Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“It (the win) is another confidence booster for me. I know I can only improve and get better,” said Tan, whose success saw her rise to a career-high 87th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.

The event featured a 70-strong field made up of players representing Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, China, India, the United States, United Kingdom, Germany and South Korea.

Daryl Low fired a closing one-under 71 to clinch the Open Boys’ Division. The 16-year-old’s three-day total of one-under-par 215 gave him a commanding eight-shot win over Ethan Lim, who signed for a 74 to take second place.

Laguna National member Jayaditya Saluja posted rounds of 74, 71 and 78 to finish in third place.

Gea Hong Tho, EFG Bank AG’s CEO for Singapore and SEA region, confirmed that the Swiss-based company has committed to sponsoring the Singapore Junior Masters for another three years.

Gea said: “We are not keen on sponsoring one-off events where we cannot see things to fruition in a short period of time. There is definitely dedicated commitment from us to see to the success of this event.”

Lyn Yeo, Founder of LLD Sports Development and Management, the event organisers, said: “It’s very important to have a stable and supportive partner because junior golf is a journey that takes between six to eight years to see the fruits of our labour and develop our champions for the future.”
