Sen­tosa Golf Club played host to the SMBC Sin­ga­pore Open once again this Jan­uary, with golfers from all over the world pit­ting their skills on the green against one another. Among the billings were Thai­land’s Prayad Mark­saeng, Aus­tralia’s Adam Scott,

Korea’s Young­han Song (who was de­fend­ing cham­pion), and South Africa’s Jbe’ Kruger. It was a gru­el­ing com­pe­ti­tion last­ing four rounds from

19 to 22 Jan­uary, in weather that was any­thing but kind. Al­most three and a half hours of play were lost on the third day of the tour­na­ment due to thun­der­storms. In the end it was Prayad Mark­saeng who emerged vic­to­ri­ous and lifted the 10th Asian tour ti­tle of his ca­reer, just eight days shy of his 51st birth­day, a per­fect cherry on the cake.
