Overnight leader R. Nachimuthu won the Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour’s RM180,000 Kelantan Closed Championship in a playoff on the east coast today.
Nachimuthu shot a last round one-under 71 at Kelantan Golf & Country Club to finish on seven-under 281, where he was matched by Shaaban Hussin – the latter firing the low round of the day, an outstanding five-under 67.
That set up the playoff, which went to three holes after both players parred the first two. At the third extra hole Nachimuthu birdied his effort to secure the win and understandably was delighted with the outcome.
The next stop on the PGM Tour is the Terengganu Championship at Resorts World Kijal, starting next Wednesday. The RM200,000 tournament is co-sanctioned with the Asian Development Tour and carries world ranking points.
