Johnson Poh wins SPGA Golf Series with career-best 64

A scintillating round of eight-under 64 saw Johnson Poh leap to the fore and win the Tan Teck Kee-sponsored 2017 SPGA Golf Series at Raffles Country Club's Palm course yesterday.

Poh, 25, shot an eagle, seven birdies and a bogey in his best-ever pro round to win by four shots over Quincy Quek (67) in the $30,000 event.

Poh, who bagged $2,700, said: "It was just my day.

"I sank many putts and my eagle on the par-five eighth was a beauty.

"I hit a wood and rescue to 10 feet on the 470-metre hole and sank the uphill putt."
