Ball control is the essence of golf; like peddling a bicycle. It comes from within. Sorry golfers, no one can teach you that. LALI.ELITE.GOLF

Overnight leader Kenneth De Silva clinches his second Tour title at the PGM Kinrara Closed Championship 2015 with a score of 10-under 274.
"I'm very happy to have won again. I have been playing quite well since the middle of the season, but I just couldn't get there in the end. However, today I managed it and feel relieved to have done it. Winning on the PGM Tour is not easy, so to have two victories, I think is good" said the 24-year old who collected a RM 30,000 winner's paycheck.

Sukree Othman who descended from the halfway lead to 6th position yesterday, fired back with a 66 and charged up to joint 2nd place with R. Nachimuthu just one stroke away from the title. After shooting sub-par rounds of 65 and 70 the first two days, Othman carded a 2-over 74 yesterday, and was left to rue his missed chance.
"I played well again today (similar to the first day) but yesterday was where it slipped away," he said. "I could not putt, yet today the putts went it, and I might have been better today, had I sunk two other make-able ones. I also hit the ball well," said the 37-year old.

The low rounds for the day with a score of 66 came from Sukree Othman and Nicholas Fung.

Danial Durisic overtook Low Khai Jei to be the leading amateur of the tournament by one stroke.

Slow yet steady, Galven Green climbed his way up to 27th position after carding a 2-under 70 for the final round.

Round 3 Results

Kenneth De Silva seizes a 2-stroke lead after the 3rd round of the RM 180,000 PGM Kinrara Closed Championship.

Overnight leader Sukree Othman faltered with a 74 to drop to 6th place, 5 strokes off the lead.

R. Nachimithu and Mohd Amli carded the low-rounds of the day with a 66 and with it Nachimuthu charged up the leader-board to joint-second place along with Shaaban Hussin (69). Good recovery by Mohd Amli who shot a 74 yesterday. Amli, who is seeking his first Tour victory, credited his putter for his quick turnaround.

"I played well today and everything I went for, went in. But maybe the putter was the main difference, after I changed it overnight.
I used an old Ping putter today and it was really hot. I sunk a few good putts for birdie, but I also hit my iron shots well too," said the 30-year old, who turned pro in 2010.

Hans Jamil carded a 68 to climb up to 4th position, 3 strokes off the lead.

Gavin Green recovers from yesterday's 76 with a 2-under 70 for today's round. Low Khai Jei still the leading amateur.

Round 1 Results
