Siva Triumphs in Kelantan

Champion savours playoff victory – his first PGM Tour win since two years ago

S. SIVACHANDHRAN won for the first time on the PGM Tour since 2011 when he prevailed in a closely-fought battle in the PGM Tour’s Kelantan Classic today.

After displaying some good early season form, during which he finished as a runner-up, and then went off the boil, Siva came through a sudden-death playoff at Kelantan Golf & Country Club in Kota Bharu, Kelantan with rookie Arie Fauzi to land the RM25,200 first prize cheque.

He made it difficult for himself, but in the end it was the sweet taste of success that mattered most and the least he deserved. Siva started the last round with a four-stroke advantage but stumbled to a one-over 73, which left him in a tie with Arie, who shot a determined five-under 67 on the last day. The top-two were 10-under 278 in regulation.

And as they played out the first extra hole, Siva made par to secure the Kelantan title –Arie slipping to a bogey. Pleased with his win in the RM150,000 tournament on Malaysia’s east coast, Siva said he could not get things going in the final round, and had to hang in there just to make the playoff.

“I played much better earlier in the tournament and just could not get started in the final round. But, I am still very happy that I won today’s playoff with Arie, who obviously did well to come home with a final round 67,” added the champion.

Speaking of where he is so far as his season is concerned, Siva said he was moving in the right direction and hoped that the win would spur him even further.

“While I am happy that I won, I know I also have to keep working hard in practice and the areas of my game which I think will need extra attention are my driving and short game,” added Siva.

While disappointed in the playoff defeat, Arie, who turned in early April, said he was pleased with the way his game has been “progressing” and will continue to work at improving.

“I only turned pro in April, so I know there is still a lot to learn. But I am happy with my performance here in Kelantan, despite the playoff result. And so far as my overall game is concerned, I will just continue to stick to the basics and hopefully it will get better,” added Arie, who turns 23 in August.

Kenneth De Silva too did well to finish with a 67, which in turn saw him climb into third place on 279, alongside Haziq Hamizan (70). Mohd Nazri Mohd Zain shot the tournament low – 64 – and finished up in a tie for fifth with Shaaban Hussin (71).

Nazri, carrying the local hopes of Kelantan on his shoulders, was runner-up here last year and said today that earlier in the week he felt too much pressure on him to do well.

“Maybe it (the pressure) got me” said Nazri. “But I am delighted that I managed an eight-under-par 64 today. Everything just worked out perfectly – the course was right on cue with my game and I hit the ball where I wanted to hit it. I did not win, but I am still very pleased with my finish”

The next couple of PGM Tour events are the Satellite Tournament at Penang Golf Resort in Bertam, Penang from June 17-19 and the PGM UMW Templer Park Masters (ADT) at Templer Park Country Club in Rawang, Selangor from June 26-29.
