Monday Rewind: 5 things we learned in Singapore

  • SHARE
November 16: In this Monday rewind, we look back at the US$750,000 World Classic Championship at Laguna National and choose five interesting things which happened in the tournament.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]1[/dropcap]Danthai Boonma of Thailand has been struggling with his swing since his coach, Natpasit Chokthanasart, nicknamed Pro Jew, died two years ago. He decided to revert to his old swing at the World Classic Championship and he was immediately rewarded with a victory.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]2[/dropcap]Danthai is the second Qualifying School graduate to win on the Asian Tour this year. Shaun Norris of South Africa was victorious at the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship (TPC) in October.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]3[/dropcap]It was heartbreak for Nicholas Fung who three-putted for bogey on the 16th hole as he missed out on a chance to force a play-off by one-shot. If he had won, it would have been the first time two Malaysians triumphed on the Asian Tour in the same season.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]4[/dropcap]The tricky greens, undulating fairways and bunker-laden World Classic course lived up to its moniker - ‘Asia’s toughest test’. Here are the stats after four days of gruelling competition.
Eagles: 16
Birdies: 1107
Pars: 4177
Bogeys: 1687
Double Bogeys: 377
Others: 104
