Kemarol Baharin won his third Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour title when he claimed the UMW Impian Championship crown with a three-stroke victory today.
The 29-year-old Kuala Lumpur player, who also won in Kelantan in 2011 and the Champion of Champions Tournament at Templer Park in Rawang at the beginning of last season, shot a final round four-under 68 at Impian Golf & Country Club that gave him a 17-under 271 total and earned him the winner’s cheque of RM30,600.
On a fourth and final day of low scoring in the RM180,000 event, co-sanctioned with the Asean PGA Tour, Kemarol’s fellow Malaysian Shaaban Hussin equalled the course record of Rashid Ismail, carding a bogey-free 10-under 62 that comprised an eagle and eight birdies.
After rounds of 73, 69 and 73 over the first three days, Shaaban settled for seventh place on 11-under 277.
The Thailand pair of Settee Prakongvech (68) and Sutijet Kooratanapisan (70) finished joint runners-up on 14-under-par 274, while their compatriot and joint second round leader Natthapong Niyomchon (70) was fourth, a shot further back.
