Division 2 also produced the same winner as February’s Medal with an equally good score of 71 was Jan P Friedmann from runner up Eddie Brown on 73. 3rd Division winner with a score of 76 was Stan Mirossay from runner up Abdul Rahman Al Lagit on 79. The CSS for the men’s event was 72.
The Ladies overall winner by three shots was back in form Anina Bester from lady Captain Pauline Jeynes on 75. The ladies CSS was 74. After this medal round the International Paints Ladies Golfer of the Year points stand at Alena on 77, from Sharon Yang on 46 and Chaya Kinder on 39.
The Men’s International Paints Golfer of the Year continues to see Mark Hayman still pulling away from the rest of the field on 100, from S.J. Lim on 83 leap froging H.J. Lee on 73 and Nam young Baek also on 73 points.
