Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - SPORTS -

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.

The windy con­di­tions made scor­ing very tough and only three golfers broke par in the last-round.

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.
