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.

Two Tans eye Muscat glory

Peng Juan, Yong Woon advance to Prudential Astro Masters grand final

Tan Peng Juan and Tan Yong Woon may share the same surname but after last Saturday’s third round of the Prudential Astro Masters, both may be sharing a room in the grand finals at Muscat, Oman this coming November.

Both players were competing in a full field of 120 participants at the Dalit Bay GCC course outside Kota Kinabalu and ended up with similar scores of two-over 74 gross. However, Peng Juan got the nod when his back nine score of 36 was two strokes lower than his opponent.

But Yong Woon wasn’t too unhappy about losing the gross title. The eight handicapper’s effort was enough to win the overall net title with an adjusted score of 67 net, beating seven others who had similar scores.

Both Tans qualified for the grand final which will take place at the Muscat Hills and Al Mouj golf clubs. The prize includes three nights accommodation at the Park Inn by Radisson hotel, transfers, meals and return travel on Oman Air.
