Malaysia still in contention for medals at SEA Games

SINGAPORE: Malaysia men’s golfers are still in the hunt for medals at the Singapore SEA Games.

In the individual event, Galven Kendall Green looks to have glimmer of hope to salvage at least a bronze in the final round at the Sentosa Golf Club.

Galven carded a two-over 74 for three-day total of 220 to trail leader Sarit Suwannarut of Thailand by five shots.

Sarit will head into the final round with one shot cushion after signing for one-under 71 to move ahead of joint leaders compatriot Natipong and Marc Ong of Singapore, who posted matching 73s.

Promising teenage Daeng Abdul Rahman Abdul Aziz finally got his game going by carding 71 to climb up to 16th on 225, but his poor first two round scores already did too much damage.

Amir Nazrin Jailani and Bryan Teoh Wiyang had 77s to sit in 17th and 21st respectively.

But Malaysia, with a three-day combined of 669, are just three strokes off the bronze medal position held by Indonesia and Philippines in the team event.

The women's challenge are as good as over. The trio of Nur Durriyah Damian, Loy Hee Ying and Genevieve Ling.

Durriyah, the best performer among the three, is already six shots off the third place with 18 holes remaining.

It also seems unlikely for them to chase a top three finish in the team event. They are fifth in the standings with 304 total and have seven shots to overcome if they harbour hopes to steal a bronze.
