Finals PGM Lada Langkawi masters a playoff Lindsay Renolds with, Mitsuhiko Hashizume



 Mitsuhiko Wins Maiden PGM Tour Title
Japanese wins in playoff to take inaugural Langkawi tournament

MITSUHIKO Hashizume came back from four strokes down on the last day to capture his maiden PGM Tour victory with a deserved win in the RM200,000 Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour’s LADA Masters at Gunung Raya Golf Club in Langkawi, Kedah today.
The Tokyo Golf Club player secured the victory in a playoff with Lindsay Renolds after both finished on 16-under 272.

The 29-year-old Mitsuhiko, whose father was a pro player on the Asian Tour proper, went around Gunung Raya in the final round of the inaugural Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) tournament in two-under-par, while Renolds shot a four-under 68.

Smiling broadly before the media, Mitsuhiko said he looked forward to continuing to play the PGM and ADT Tours and hopefully finish in the top-three to earn an automatic berth on the Asian Tour next season.

“Like yesterday, I just tweaked my swing a little and felt much more comfortable,” he added. “And I’m very happy that it all came right here in Langkawi, which I think is a beautiful place.”
Without attempting to take anything away from the supreme efforts of champion Mitsuhiko and runner-up Renolds, they were to some extent aided by a two-hole meltdown by overnight leader James Byrne.

The Scotsman, who led  by five strokes at the halfway mark and by four at the start of last round, surrendered his advantage with a double-bogey and triple-bogey at holes 13 and 14 to slip to 13-under – and that’s where he finished.

Bryne pulled his tee-shot into the water after it struck the big tree on the left at the 366-metre 13th, which led to a six, and on the next he went out of bounds and also found a sand hazard, en route a seven on a par-4 that measures 358m.

First round leader Nil Floren returned to form of sorts with a 67 to finish alone in third on 273, while former Malaysian Open champion Anthony Kang shot a two-under 70 that left him in a tie for fourth alongside Thailand’s Wasin Sripattranusorn (71). Malcolm Kokocinski (70) of Sweden and Byrne were joint sixth.

Nicholas Fung was Malaysia’s best-placed player on 12-under, in a tie for eighth with Swede David Palm (67), Australian Darren Tan (67), Englishman Ian Keenan (71) and Singapore’s Lam Chih Bing, who played in the last flight and finished with a two-over 74.
R. Nachimuthu, also of Malaysia, shot a commendable 68 and ended up in a tie for 10th, with New Zealander Ben Campbell (69).

Speaking at the prize-giving ceremony, LADA Chief Executive Officer Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Khalid Bin Ramli said they were pleased with the organization of the tournament and that it helped further strengthen the island’s standing in the tourism industry.

“Events like this are of immense value to the island, more so with our rebranding of our slogan ‘Naturally Langkawi’.

“Golf plays an important role in sports tourism and we are more than happy to make this an annual event on the PGM Tour and Asian Development Tour (ADT) calendars,” he added.

Tun Ahmad Sarji, Chairman of the PGM Tour, said they looked forward to the growth of the tournament, held in Langkawi for the first time.

“This is the biggest golf tournament ever in Langkawi and we believe it does the island proud as not only does it provide for good quality professional golf, but also bolsters the region’s stature as a premier sports venue and tourist destination for the whole family.”
