George Patrick Sisira Kumara fired a fantastic six under par 66 in the final-round to clinch the Lectra Grand Prix (LGP) May Edition, worked off at the Eagles Catalina Golf Club in Koggala yesterday.

Kumara fired all cylinders to shoot a brilliant six under par 66 and sailed in to the lead and snatched the May Edition from overnight leader Amarapadma to register a great win by two strokes.
Meanwhile, Amateur National Champion M. U. Chanaka Perera returned a one under par final-round to secure the third place.
