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.
