That effort gave him a two-stroke lead after the first round of the RM180,000 tournament that features the Tour’s leading players, minus the top-three – Danny Chia, Arie Irawan and Ben Leong, who are in this week’s US PGA Tour-sanctioned CIMB Classic at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.
Nachimuthu’s opening day was highlighted by an eagle-three on the par-5 12th and a run of three consecutive birdies from Hole No. 2. He had another three birdies at 9th, 10th and 18th holes, countered by four bogeys – two on each nine.
Speaking of his up-and-down round Nachimuthu said he was still happy with it went despite the rain interruption that came before the two bogeys at the end – Holes 16 and 17.
“I birdied the last and that was after the two bogeys which came when we restarted,” said multiple Tour winner Nachimuthu.
A tweaked swing is the reason behind his recent change in fortunes, Nachimuthu added.
“Coming into the tournament I worked on my swing and now feel comfortable inside 100 metres. That gave me a chance at several birdies as I hit the ball close (to the flag).”
“Of course I also made a few mistakes but at the end of it all, I finished four-under, so I am happy with how it went,” said Nachmuthu.
There was a three-way tie for second place when Airil Rizman, S. Murthy and Shaifubari Muda, who carded a 64 in the Kinrara Championship last week, returned with matching 70s.
Shaaban Hussin, who finished in the top-three last week, Lam Yu Shuen, Keegan Kam and Muhammad Alwarith Damian, who himself has been in good nick of late, were joint fifth on one-under 71.
