GAVIN Green won the Putra Cup Individual title at the Southeast Asian Amateur Team Championships, edging out tournament favourite, Filipino Jonathan Delos Reyes.

Gavin consolidated his growing reputation on the amateur scene by winning the tournament with an impressive 14-under-par 274 total.

He beat Reyes after carding a final round 4-under 68, while the local hope managed a one-under-par 71.

“I knew that if I followed the game plan as agreed with my coach, I had a good chance of winning,” said Gavin. “I was not really happy with the two bogeys on the back nine (in the final round) but luckily I managed two eagles on the first nine to even out the score.”

In the men’s team event, host nation the Philippines fired a 24-under-par 840 total to claim the honours.

Represented by Reyes, Jobim Antonio Carlos, Rico Hoey and Ruperto Zaragosa at the Southeast Asian Amateur Team Championships – the 53rd Putra Cup – the home nation emerged with a massive 22-stroke winning margin.

Team Singapore, represented by Marc Ong, Jerome Ng, Jonathan Woo and Nicklaus Chiam, finished second on two-under-par 862, while Poom Saksansin, Danthai Boonma, Chanachok D and Itthipat Buranatanyaparat of Thailand were 24 shots off the lead on even-par 864 in third place.
