Go Wins 2018 Kuala Lumpur Amateur Open
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Rising junior Lois Kaye Go played her way to a title this week at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur Amateur Open.
Go finished at seven under par for the tournament, three strokes better than the runner up. Go finished the three-round tournament with scores of 68, 68 and 73.
In her first round, Go carded 3-under-par 33 on the front nine and 1-under-par 35 on the back nine for 4-under-par 68 to finish top of the leaderboard. In round two, Go carded 4 birdies and a bogey on the front nine and a birdie on the back nine to remain atop the leaderboard. She would finish with a 73, but her strong first and second rounds kept the competition at bay.
