Golf: Matsuyama wins Asian Amateur Championship

SINGAPORE: Japanese golfer Hideki Matsuyama on Sunday won the third Asian Amateur Championship at The Singapore Island Country Club. The 19-year-old defending champion, who won the title last year in his home country Japan, hit five birdies in a bogey-free round to finish 18-under par and one shot clear of South Korea's Lee Soo-min. Victory means a return to the Masters Tournament in April for Matsuyama, where he made history last year by becoming the first Asian golfer to win the Silver Cup for low amateur. Matsumaya has set the record for the lowest 72-hole score in the Asian Amateur Championship history. A total of 120 players from 35 countries took part in the tournament. The fourth Asian Amateur Championship will be staged at Amata Spring Country Club in Chonburi, southeast of Thailand's capital city of Bangkok, in November next year.
