12 year old Syed Nor Ismail’s win at Asia Golfing Network “Daiman 18 Golf Challenge” last December proved that hardwork is the key to success. The teenager from Johor rolled in a score of 36 stableford points to defeat runner-up Nurfarahin Zamsari (18).
B.Rajakulasingham, the General Manager of Daiman 18 Golf was pleased with Ismail’s performance in the Junior category as Raja believes that he will inspire more juniors to play among adults in future tournaments. “Golf will steer his confidence to great heights and at the same time build his character in the long run. I’m happy for his win and let’s hope more parents will send their children to play more competitive golf. The turn out and support by the local community was great and we are happy that the event ended well. I take this opportunity to thank all the participants who came forward to support us and AGN,” said a happy Raja.
Shahrul Salleh (7) delivered a score of 77 gross to walk home as the champion in the overall gross category. “The good weather, good food and good prizes made golf fun and exciting at Daiman 18 Golf. The golf course is well maintained well and kudos to everyone for a successful tournament,” said Salleh who hails from Johor.

Meanwhile AGN’s signature novelty known as the “AGN Putting Challenge” was won by Azzdie Bachok and walked home RM500 cash as the main prize. “I was seated at the cafeteria until the event organizer came forth to remind me about the putting challenge. It was a miracle 25 feet putt and happy to have won the money,” said Azzdie.
