Monday Rewind: 5 things we learned #YeangderHeritage

  • SHARE
Sentosa, Singapore, May 1: Here’s five interesting things you need to know from the Yeangder Heritage which concluded on Sunday.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]1[/dropcap]Shiv Kapur won his second Asian Tour title after a gap of 11 years and four months at the inaugural Yeangder Heritage but it would not have happened if the 35-year-old was not persuaded by National Golf Country Club (NGCC) General Manager Roy Wu when they met in Japan last year!
“I met Shiv in Japan last year and I told him, come and play at my course. I’m happy he did because now he won again,” said Wu during the prize giving ceremony.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]2[/dropcap]During his victory speech Kapur dedicated his victory to an unsung hero of the Asian Tour – Agnes Chow – a Tournament Admin who will leave the Tour after 17 years. The Indian said Chow was also one of the reasons why he decided to play at the Yeangder Heritage.

He grew up playing at the golf course before turning professional and is now a PGA Tour player. His mother continues to work at the course for slightly more than 20 years.
[dropcap style="default, circle, box, book"]4[/dropcap]This was the first time NGCC staged an Asian Tour event and the Asian Tour stars including the champion Kapur praised the condition of the course, saying its greens are probably the best in Chinese Taipei.

Players were surprised they could enjoy authentic Malaysian food during the week. Last year the course also did a similar promotion when they organised a Thai food fair.
