Kuchar gets Olympic boost
– Olympic medallist Matt Kuchar fought back from a triple-bogey to win the Singapore Open yesterday in a boost ahead of the Tokyo Games, while fellow Rio winner Justin Rose finished second.
The three men’s golf medallists from the 2016 Rio Olympics appeared at the event, with their performances closely watched for clues about their form before the Tokyo Games.
While Rio bronze medallist Kuchar of the USA and gold winner Rose of England had good tournaments, there was disappointment for silver medallist Henrik Stenson who finished 23rd. Jazz Janewattananond of Thailand took third place. – AFP
