Nordin wants 2nd Prudential Astro Masters win

PETALING JAYA, Fri – Nordin Yahaya is looking forward to etching his name on the winners’ list for a second time, when he competes in the grand final of the Prudential Astro Masters in Muscat, Oman this November.

The 35-year old administrative assistant at the Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris in Tanjong Malim blistered the Cinta Sayang Golf & Country Resort course last Saturday, carding a three-over 75 to win the gross title in the eighth qualifying round of PAM 2017.

Nordin, who started golf when he was 14 year old, was champion in the 2012 grand final in Surabaya, Indonesia. Two years later in Ho Chi Minh City he could only finish fifth.

“Qualifying for the grand finals of the Prudential Astro Masters is always an achievement,” said the two-handicapper. “But to do so in the year that Prudential Astro Masters is celebrating its 20th anniversary, is special. What’s more we’re getting a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play in Muscat. I’m excited at the prospect.”

When the going gets rough …

Mohd Nasir hangs on to make Prudential Astro Masters final in Muscat

The tough, undulating greens at Orna Golf Resort failed to deter Mohd Nasir Othman from carding an impressive three-over 75 to win the Overall Gross title in the fourth round of the Prudential Astro Masters in Malacca last Saturday.

Nasir took advantage of cool conditions to shape a two-under 34 in the first nine but gave back five strokes to the course in his inward journey. Still, his performance was good enough to beat his nearest challengers by two strokes and advance to the grand final in Muscat, Oman.

In losing the gross title to Nasir, George Wee and Imran Hasni gained consolation by finishing first and second respectively, in the ‘A’ Medal based on net scores. Wee won a Bridgestone driver valued at RM2,590 and a gift set from Nunature. Imran took home a Panasonic Air Purifier worth RM1,445. Third was Ng Soon Siong who collected a Samsonite Spinner cabin trolley bag.

Joining Nasir to the Oman capital city of Muscat is Bukhari Yahya, a 23-handicapper who finished at 67 net. His closest rival was Abdul Rahman Ismail who lost due to a higher handicap in the countback. Abdul Rahman won the ‘C’ Medal instead and carted home a Panasonic bread maker retailing a RM1,399.
