Jayasinghe Claims First Oman Amateur Series Event at Ghala Golf Club

Ruwan Jayasinghe has been crowned champion of the first Oman Amateur Series event after rounds of 74, 79 and 72 for a tournament total of 225.

Played over three consecutive days at Ghala Golf Club the event had the added attraction of World Amateur Golf Ranking points resulting in a strong field of players.

In the mix from the first round where he posted a two over par 74 to be tied with eventual runner up Badar Al Amri, Jayasinghe relinquished his lead after a second round score of 79 to Azzan Al Rumhy. However, Jayasinghe recorded the tournaments lowest round of the week in the final round to take top spot with a level par 72 around Ghala Golf Club which included three birdies and three bogeys.

The Sri Lankan, who plays out of Ghala Golf Club, claimed the title by a small margin of two shots from Omani National Team player Badar Al Amri who posted a final round 73, with Amhed Al Wahaibi a further two shots back.
