Hashizume lands first ADT title

  • SHARE
Langkawi, Kedah, Malaysia, April 28: Mitsuhiko Hashizume became the first Japanese to win on the Asian Development Tour (ADT) when he defeated Lindsay Renolds of Canada on the second playoff hole at the PGM LADA Langkawi Masters on Sunday.
Hashizume and Renolds shot a 70 and 68 respectively to tie on 16-under-par 272 in regulation play before returning to the par four 18th hole at the Gunung Raya Golf Resort.
Both players made par on the first extra hole before play was suspended for a brief moment due to a thunderstorm. When they returned, Hashizume produced a sensational second shot to set up a two-footer birdie putt which he sank for the win. Renolds settled for second after managing a bogey.
Opening day leader Nils Floren of Sweden shot a 67 to finish third on 273 while Anthony Kang of the United States and Wasin Sripattranusorn of Thailand were a further shot back in fourth position.
There was heartbreak for overnight leader James Byrne of Scotland, who held a four-shot lead heading into the final round, when he shot a 77 to finish sixth at the RM200,000 (approximately US$65,000) event.
The 29-year-old Hashizume was delighted to secure his first professional victory since turning professional in 2007.
His victory propelled him to third position on the ADT Order of Merit, which he needs to maintain until the end of the season to earn an Asian Tour card for 2014.
“I’m very happy that I have won. I was four shots from the leader yesterday so to come out and win is really fantastic,” said the Japanese, who won US$11,275 and earned six Official World Golf Ranking points.
“I wanted to play on the ADT to get more experience. I think this is a great Tour and gives players such as myself a chance to improve,” he smiled.
The Phuket-based Renolds soaked in the positives despite losing on the second extra hole.
“I wasn’t playing well coming into this week but it is good to see that I can still compete. Being put in this position is a good stepping stone because you can only improve and learn from it,” he said.
