28th MVGCC Club Championship

Club Champ

It was sweet revenge for Jack Chew when he lifted the challenge trophy of this year’s Club Championship.

Having lost to CC Teh in the Sudden-Death battle of the 2020 Championship, Chew fought tooth and nail to make a comeback this time.

Despite a heavy downpour before the start of the tournament, Chew posted a gross score of 74 to take charge of the leaderboard with a 2 stroke lead over Teh and the rest of their opponents.

The final round saw a tense battle between the two top contenders when Teh managed to cut the gap to 1 stroke after completing the front nine and creating the possibility of a Sudden Death. However, with a series of misfortunes faced by Teh at Hole 11, Chew managed to extend the lead to 5 strokes with 7 holes to play.

Though Teh launched an all-out final attack for the remaining holes, Chew kept his composure and focus before steadily concluding the round with a score of 78 to claim the title with a 3 stroke lead victory. And thus, erasing the bitter memory of losing the previous year’s battle.

Teh who played 76 and 79 claimed the runners-up spot. Meanwhile, newly elected liaison committee member, Siew Cheng Fatt claimed the third spot with a score of 84 and 81.

Ladies championship.

As expected, Sharni Nagalingam defended her title with a massive 12-stroke victory over Choo Yin Kwan who finished in second place. Taking the lead right from the start, Sharni put up a determined performance with a gross score of 84 in the first round and taking a 6 stroke lead on the leaderboard.

Remaining focused, Sharni posted a gross score of 87 in the final round to retain her title. Choo claimed the runners-up spot with a score of 90 and 93 gross. Tomoko Ikawa who played 99 and 89 gross claimed third spot overall.
