Alimin surprises all at Shan Shui

Well done: Shan Shui general manager Henry Ng (left) and P. Jeganathan of Astro (right) with Alimin (second from left) and nett winner Ali Usni.

ALIMIN Bacho Nepo made a mockery of the handicapping system last month when he won the gross title of the 12th round of the Prudential Astro Masters, played at Shan Shui Golf & Country Club in Tawau, Sabah.

The 17-handicapper from Lahad Datu carded a gross 77 to win by two strokes – which was a clear 10 strokes better than his handicap. As a consequence and in accordance with the tournament’s Unique Rules policy, Alimin’s handicap will be adjusted to 5 for the grand final in Bali – a slashing of 12 strokes.

Local hope Ali Usni Binang won the nett title on countback, beating four others who also carded 67s.

Mohamad Anas Achmad took home a RM2,400 Titoni watch, won in the final lucky draw of the day, while Kenny Chua won a 50-inch Panasonic LED television in the Sure-to-Win competition.
