Kemarol Baharin carded a 67 in the Kelantan Closed opening round to take a one-stroke lead over Mohd Azman Basharuddin and Mohd Rizal Amin.
PETALING JAYA: In-form Kemarol Baharin fired a five-under 67 to take the opening round lead in the RM160,000 PGM Kelantan Closed championship at the Kelantan Golf & Country Club in Kota Baru.
The Kuala Lumpur player is one stroke ahead of Mohd Azman Basharuddin and Mohd Rizal Amin.
Kemarol, who won the season-opener at Templer’s Park in January, had an eagle, six birdies and three bogeys on Wednesday.
Those blemishes will not matter much to the Tour’s in-form player as he continues his pursuit of a second title this season.
“I’m happy with the start ... it could have been better. But I will try to do everything the same again tomorrow and hopefully by the end of the tournament it all comes together,” said Kemarol.
