Golf in Siem Reap: Senior masters hit the links with amateur partners

On a somewhat hot and windless day, 22 teams featuring a heady mix of one pro to every three amateurs served up a funfair of golf with an occasional flash of brilliance, as a pro-am event set the ball rolling for the Asian Senior Masters at the Siem Reap Lake Resort Golf Club yesterday. The 22 Pros are looking ahead to the start of the Masters proper tomorrow, but most of them were more than happy to be teaming up with amateurs, using the chance to get a sense of the course and its intricacies. For the 60-odd amateurs it was serious business as they keenly got on with the job with their esteemed new colleagues.

United States golf pro Alfredo Morales saw his Cambodian amateur partners Lee Hong, Ly Thuch and San Sean Ho pitch in splendid rounds that took them to the top of the leader board, while Cambodian amateur Ly Heng shot the best round score of 71 out of all the players yesterday. The pro-am event spills over today for another round of action. Nine amateurs with the best gross scores will get on board the Amateur Open which runs alongside the Masters tournament playing tomorrow and Thursday. The team score represents the total involving the pro’s card and two amateur scores, with the best amateur score blown out.
