PETALING JAYA: Malaysian golfer Ben Leong's run in the US Amateur Open Championship ended when he lost 3-5 to American David Merkow in the first round of the matchplay competition at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota on Wednesday.
Ben's challenge ended when the American notched his fifth point to secure victory with three holes left.
It was the second appearance for Ben in the prestigious golf tournament. He was among the 64 golfers to qualify for the knockout competition after finishing with a two-over 145 to tie for 25th position with 11 other golfers in the two-round strokeplay stage.
He will resume training in United States but is expected to return home to join the national team to prepare for the Doha Asian Games in December.
