MPI Generali Saujana Amateur Championship 2018
Joshua All The Way

Joshua Ho (SIN)

Shah Alam, 4 May 2018: A fabulous 4-under 68 on the final day at Saujana Golf & Country Club stamped Joshua Ho’s dominance and triumph in the 2018 MPI Generali Saujana Amateur Championship. The Singaporean never relinguished his lead from the start, posting 70 for tied lead on day 1 and then scoring 69 on day 2 to finally overcoming his challengers with a 68 for 207 total and a 2-stroke win.

The Singapore Management University graduate becomes the 3rd Singaporean to win the title since the event’s inception in 1988.

Starting the final day with a 2-stroke lead over Aussie Connor McKinney and 3 strokes ahead of Thailand’s Sadom Kaewkanjana and Kosuke Hamamoto, Joshua had only a birdie at hole 5 in the 1st nine. But by hole 7, both Connor and Sadom had drawn level with him. Connor had 3 birdies and Sadom had 4. Another birdie at hole 9 gave Sadom a 1-stoke lead.

“I knew I had to dig deep after Sadom took over the lead and Connor was only a stroke back in the 1st nine,” said Joshua.

Joshua pulled even with Sadom with a birdie at the 11th and then took back the lead again at the 12th Par 3 with a 5-foot birdie. Another birdie by Joshua at the 14th Par 4 and he was 2 strokes ahead at of Sadom and 3 ahead of Connor. Hamamoto trailed 4 strokes behind Joshua.

Joshua nailed a tricky downslope 7-footer at the 16th Par 4 for a birdie to seal the deal with his contenders. With 2 holes to go, Joshua had a comfortable 3-stroke lead and even a bogey at the finishing hole did not affect the final result. Joshua has become the 3rd Singaporean to claim the coveted title.

“”My driver and irons were solid this whole week,” said Joshua. “I think my confidence level was raised after my 3rd placing in the Sarawak Amateur last week.”

Muhammad Afif and Shakiran Johari were the best Malaysian finishers tied at 9th place.
