PETALING JAYA: M. Sasidaran recorded the season’s best score on the PGM Tour when he fired a 10-under 62 on the final day of the RM160,000 PGM Kelantan Closed Championship but it was not good enough for him to land the title.
Instead, it was Nicholas Fung who bagged the title at the Kelantan Golf & Country Club in Kota Baru with a final round 67 for a 12-under 276 total – three strokes ahead of Sasidaran and R. Nachimuthu, who came home with a 69 on Saturday.
Wilson Choo, who had led since the second round, stumbled to a 73 to finish fourth on seven-under 281.
Airil Rizman (69) and first-round leader Kemarol Baharin (70) were tied for fifth on 282.
Nicholas had eight birdies and three bogeys in the final round en route to scoring his first win of the season.
Sasidaran, meanwhile, had 11 birdies and one bogey in a performance that will do his confidence a world of good.
Explaining his massive turnaround – going from shooting a 74 in the third round to a 62, Sasi said: “I think it was a case of having no pressure or expectations.”
The PGM’s next stop is the RM200,000 CCM Rahman Putra Championship at Kelab Rahman Putra in Sungai Buloh from March 12-15.
