Gaviola wins at Masters

In a thrilling duel down the stretch, Renato Gaviola of the Phillipines shot a one-under 71 in the second round, cushioning his first round even par 72 to beat compatriot Fabian Del Rosario by a single stroke in the Asian Senior Masters tournament at the Siem Reap Lake Resort golf club last Thursday. Del Rosario had completed a first round of 70 to make him the frontrunner for the title overnight on Wednesday. However, he drifted back with a subdued second round showing that saw him hit a two-over 74 and end with a total of 144. Ross Metherell of Australia and Tony Feminis of Germany tied for third on 145, followed by Don Leary of Australia and the Filipino pair of Antolin Fernando and Jessie Hernandez all tied at 147. The Beeline Cup, an amateur event that run concurrently to the Senior Masters, saw Cambodian rookies take the top three slots. Sam Kean’s 74 saw him edge out compatriots Cheng Heng (75), Ly Hong (76) and  Ly Thuch (77).
