While Indonesia’s Rory managed to climb to the top of the leaderboard during the second round, it was American Troix Tonkham who stole the show that day. The 24-year-old produced an ace on the 4th hole using his seven-iron from 156 yards. “This is my first hole-in-one in a golf tournament, but I’ve made four aces in total,” said Tonkham. Finishing with a total of 2-under, he made the cut which was set at 3-over.
Masaru Takahashi of Japan engraved the lowest score for a round at the four-day event. The 32-year-old signed for 65 on a flawless, bogey-free final round scorecard, highlighted with seven birdies. Takahashi jumped into T3 on the leaderboard with a four-day total of 12-under, 276, at the US$65,000 Asian Development Tour event.
