The Boost from Brunei
Danny Masrin won the title of the Indonesian Golf Tour Series II with a total of 8-under. This is the sixth IGT title for the 24-year-old and the second he has secured on the East Course at Gunung Geulis Golf & Country Club.
Just a week earlier, Danny played in the Richard Mille Brunei Championship, on the Asian Development Tour tournament where he reached T-4. His result in the US$60,000 event, and subsequent Official World Golf Ranking points he received, resulted in a boost to Danny’s spirit, pepping him up to play well in the IGT event.
“I was in the best game condition after last week when I performed well in Brunei. I scored 6-under (65) in the first and the final round. Therefore, I had a good feeling in my game,” said Danny.
Interestingly, Danny almost skipped the Richard Mille Brunei Championship after having a bad result at the ISPS HANDA New Zealand Open a week before Brunei. “My iron play, which is my strength, was not good. However, I was advised to join the Richard Mille Brunei Championship. It turned out to be a good choice, I had a great result,” added Danny.
Danny trained with his coach to hone his shot sharpness before the most recent IGT event and won with a solid score. After placing as runner-up in the previous IGT event and then sealing this latest victory, Danny admitted that the good start to his season has encouraged him to commit to attending each series of the 2018 IGT.
