Ong at home at Warren

National golfer Marc Ong showed his familiarity with the Warren course by shooting a two-under 69 to lead the men's section of the Warren Amateur Open.

Ong, the Singapore hero who contributed the winning point for the team gold medal in August, had a mixed bag with an eagle, three birdies and three bogeys on the first day at Choa Chu Kang.

He leads by one over national teammate Abdul Hadi in a field of 57 players, while Shannon Tan leads the women's section on 75. - GODFREY ROBERT
