QUINTET OF MALAYSIANS CLINCH BERTHS AT SIME DARBY LPGA
Aretha Pan tops leader board while Nur Durriyah and Ashley Lau finish in second and third. Winnie Ng and Natasha Oon qualify as top two Junior Amateurs.
KUALA LUMPUR, 27 September 2016 – It turned out to be an all-Malaysian affair as the dust settled on the greens of TPC Kuala Lumpur after the second and final day of the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia National Qualifying Tournament. Aretha Pan won the tournament in impressive style with a second round score of 4-over par 75 to add to her first round score of 2-under 69.
Local golfers Nur Durriyah and Ashley Lau finished in second and third place respectively, and were awarded the two local qualifying places. Durriyah carded a 2-over par 73 today and scored a total of 147, while Lau shot a 4-over par 75 to finish with a total score of 150.
The result demonstrated Pan’s steady improvement over the past 12 months. The 22-year- old said: “It was a decent round today. I had a good run on the back nine yesterday but I struggled a bit towards the end with my putting. At the end of the day, golf is all about getting the ball into the hole. My putting was still a little bit off today, but it’s definitely something that I will be working hard to improve on now that I have officially qualified!”
