Contrasting Triumphs at Tanah Merah

Singapore: Displaying admirable composure in the face of adversity, Yash Majmudar emerged triumphant in the 74th Singapore Open Amateur Championship (SOAC).

One shot off the pace heading into the final round over the Tampines Course at Tanah Merah Country Club, Dubai-based Indian Majmudar appeared on course for victory as he approached the 72nd hole with a two-stroke advantage.

But the 24-year-old member at Jumeirah Golf Estates ran-up a double-bogey six on 18 to sign for a closing 74.

His 72-hole total of three-over 291 meant he finished level with Hanoi SEA Games bronze medallist Weerawish Narkprachar of Thailand and Isaac Lam of Hong Kong.

Undeterred by that late setback, Majmudar triumphed in the sudden-death play-off at the club which is a Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. “It feels really good to win in a field with the best players from around the region. It feels great to pull it off,” said Majmudar, who has a plus-five handicap index.

Thanks to his win, Majmudar has earned himself a return trip to the Lion City next month (August 11-14) to play in the Asian Tour’s US$1.5 million International Series Singapore at Tanah Merah.

The outcome in the women’s division at the SOAC was more clear cut with Malaysian Mirabel Ting easing to a wire-to-wire with four consecutive sub-par rounds.

With an 11-under 277 aggregate, Ting finished 16 shots ahead of Singapore’s Hailey Loh, the distant runner-up.

Ting said: “I would like to thank Malaysian Golf Association, my parents and supporters for their belief in me.”

The 74th edition of the Singapore Open Amateur Championship attracted 110 players from 18 countries.
