Danny’s Eyes On Adt
Danny Masrin won his second title on the Indonesian Golf Tour 2016. The victory has added to his motivation to win higher-level tournaments.
In the last three tournaments of the BNI Indonesian Golf Tour Danny Masrin has been in the title race. Only with the exception of the first round of the 5th event has Danny fallen below 2nd position. It’s this consistency that has delivered him two titles, the most recent at the 6th event in the IGT series held at Imperial Klub Golf.
Compared to his performance at the 4th tournament of the series - his first professional win - Danny’s game at Imperial Klub Golf was even more impressive. He shot a total of 9-under for the tournament, producing a score of 5-under (67) in the most important round of the week, the final day. He cemented a solid victory of six strokes over Jordan Irawan and seven strokes over Ian Andrew, who had been Danny’s closest competitor in the final round before making a frustrating double bogey on the last hole.
"This is my best game for IGT. I hope it can continue," said Danny, who had taken the lead from the first round of the event. “This should have been played in every event.”
Danny admitted that his victory at the 4th event had lifted his self-confidence and helped him to play better at Imperial. The difference was clear to see: in the 4th event Danny made 14 birdies against 10 bogeys, while in the 6th event Danny scored 14 birdies and one eagle against only five bogeys and one double bogey.
“I learnt a lot when I played in the IGT series. My main goal is to win the ADT (Asian Development Tour) event. So, for me, winning the IGT title is like getting an extra bonus. However, this winning was good for me to play in the ADT,” stated Danny.
Meanwhile, runner-up position for Ian secures his stance at the top of Indonesian Golf Tour Points Standing. He leads with 1080 points, 209 points over Jordan Surya Irawan who is in second place. It’s proof of Ian’s consistent performance throughout the season.
“I got a lesson in the experience and mental sparring because I often play abroad. Since competing in the Asian Development Tour events, I have [a better] scoring average. In the ADT I usually play in four tournaments in a row. Then, I learned to play consistently in every tournament. This experience apparently really helps me in the IGT events,” Ian commented.
