Golf: Veteran Mardan Mamat claims ICTSI Philippine Open title

ADRIAN FLORES, GMA News February 12, 2012

It was experience, not youth that prevailed in the ICTSI Philippine Open.

Singapore’s Mardan Mamat, with all 17 of his years in the Asian Tour, survived the final round shootout with the Philippines’ Antonio Lascuna, teen Miguel Tabuena, and Korea’s Mo Joong-kyung, to capture the Philippine Open title at the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club, Sunday.

Pressure-free and ever-smiling on a rainy afternoon, Mamat finished his tour of the demanding, par-72 East course with a one-under-par 71 and a nine-under-par 280 overall. He kneeled and kissed the green after the 18th hole, a fitting end to an exhausting week at Wack Wack.

The 44-year-old’s win is his first in Asia’s oldest and most prestigious national championship of the land, winning $47,550 (or approximately P2-million), an Omega Aqua Terra and a BlackBerry phone, while also ending a six-year drought on the Asian Tour circuit, after past victories in the 2004 Indian Open and the 2006 Singapore Masters.


Editor Notes :- I am not sure how many of us here will rejoices at our very own Singaporean winning....Mamat i am proud of you !!! Keep up the good works ! make Singapore proud !!!
