Pro-Am event wraps up ahead of Senior Masters

Reid Sheftall, an American pro living in Cambodia, led a team of three amateurs including Senior Commerce Minister Cham Prasidh to the day’s best team score in a Pro-Am event leading into the Asian Senior Masters at the Siem Reap Lake Resort Golf Club yesterday. Seng Vanthy and Ly Hong completed the four-player flight, with the latter firing the best individual score of the day at 68. For Emmett McHenry, justice was delayed but not denied in the end. The man from Ireland shot the round of his life during Monday’s first day of the Pro-Am event, but his gross 65 after his handicap deduction of 24 strokes, went unrecognised by the officials for the best individual stroke play prize of the day. The organisers however ratified the score later in the evening and awarded a token prize to 62-year-old McHenry. The event shifts gear from the fun-filled Pro-Am to the Masters proper today.
