August 27:  When Koh Sock Hwee won the event last year after a seven-year drought we were ecstatic.  Jen Goh winning this year was the icing on the cake.

And she did so in style posting an 11-under three-day score of 205 – six strokes ahead of Amelia Yong who took the second spot OCB from Indonesia’s Inez Wanamarta.

Sticking to her game plan of extend not defend her overnight lead paid off despite dropping a couple of shots along the way, and allowing Amelia to get to within just two strokes behind her in the opening holes.

With a string of wins in the last few weeks, this win means a lot to Jen and shows that she can compete with the best. “I’m even more determined and excited for what’s to come ahead.”

Winning today says Jen is a huge confidence booster for stage 2 of LPGA Q-school in October, and in her journey to become the first Singaporean to win on tour.

To Amelia taking the second spot was unexpected both to her and just about everyone else. After a break of nearly a year and a half from competitive golf she’s just happy to have proved that she still has what it takes.

“Today’s high came from knowing I was in contention and coming in second was more than I could have asked for – and I did work pretty hard on the course these three days!”

But the real high adds Amelia “was seeing familiar faces, reminiscing over the days when I was playing competitively, and of course the chance to play with Singapore’s top female golfers.”

Inez edged out of the second spot on countback played solid the entire day, and kept her composure throughout. The 17 year-old kChoose from the most used tagsept to her strategy of playing a shot at a time and giving herself chances without unnecessary risk-taking.

SLGA would like to thank all golfers local, and from overseas, for taking partt in the 26th edition of this event.
