He wins the Prudential Astro Masters grand final title by one stroke
PATTAYA, Thursday – Mohd Pizul Hazmi received a timely farewell present to his amateur career when he emerged champion golfer of the year by winning the 2016 Prudential Astro Masters in a dramatic grand final here yesterday.
Pizul who intends to join the professional ranks next month, shot a two-day aggregate of 147 to win the gross title by just one stroke over early favourite Jimmy Chia of Kota Permai. Two shots further back in third placing was Norazle Idris of Kelab Golf Sarawak.
“This has been a tremendous achievement for me,” said the 29-year old Kedahan who now works for the Majlis Perbandaran Kuantan. “All the hard work had paid off. Yes I hope to do well in the coming pro school and earn my tour card.
“Winning the Prudential Astro Masters title is a good boost to my professional aspirations. We had so many good players from around the country in this final. I dedicate this win to my fellow competitors and also to my loyal supporter. He knows who I’m referring to.”
