THE 20TH BAIDURI MASTERS MAKES HISTORY
03rd May 2015

Bandar Seri Begawan, 3 May 2015 – In an unprecedented turn of events, the Baiduri Masters made history today when amateur golfer, Ahanapiah Hj Md Noor, sank a hole-in-one on Hole 2 in the morning session. Two days ago, the Baiduri Masters charity golf tournament achieved a milestone when Ahmad Izzat Dato Seri Setia Hj Md Zaimi sank a hole-in-one on Hole 2 on the first day of the tournament, thus making him the second golfer ever in the 20 years of the Baiduri Masters, but yet another milestone was achieved this morning by having 2 hole-in-ones on the same hole in the same tournament over one weekend.

When Ahanapiah Hj Md Noor struck his Srixon AD333 no. 3 ball with his Titleist AP2 8 iron just after 9:00 am this morning, little did he know that he would leave his mark in Baduri Masters history by acing Hole 2 for the highly sought-after hole-in-one prize, the Porsche Panamera becoming the third ever golfer to do so in the Baiduri Masters. A hole-in-one prize works on the premise that if there is more than one winner, which is a first for the Baiduri Masters, the prize will be shared among the winners.

At the end of the eventful round of golf this afternoon, Seruji Hj Setia is still in the lead with his gross score of 68. New to the top 12 was Hj Shahminan Damit, following closely behind by 1 stroke at 69 resulting in Khairol Bakar dropping one spot to third still with a gross score of 73.

Another new addition to the top 12, Tony Hj Karim, played a good round of golf ending the day with a gross of 73. Also with a gross of 73, Lai Suan Loong down by 2 places.

In sixth and seventh places were newcomer Qawiem Aslimon and Hj Khairul Jamaluddin respectively, each with a gross score of 74.

Qazzri Aslimon dropped 3 places to eighth though he did improve his score by one stroke to 75. Rounding off the top 12 were 3 newcomers to the top 12, Pg Razali Pg Hj Sabli, Mohd Roza Shah Hussin and Moksin Junaidi as well as Hj Md Sharipuddin Hj Md Salleh who dropped 7 places from yesterday, all with a gross of 76.

Today’s round of golf saw 176 golfers competing for a place in the final round next Sunday, thus bringing the total number of participants to 478 for this weekend.
