Sukree Othman in joint second behind Kitayama

Malaysia : Veteran golfer Sukree Othman continued his fiery form by opening with a brilliant five-under 67 at the weather-hit PGM Darulaman Championship.

Riding high from his PGM Perlis Championship triumph three days ago, the 41-year-old settled for a provisional joint second spot with Thailand’s Tawan Phongphun in the RM225,000 tournament at the

Darulaman Golf and Country Club in Jitra yesterday.

Both Sukree and Tawan were four shots behind American Kurt Kitayama, who sank nine birdies on his way to a bogey-free nine-under 63 in the event jointly sanctioned by the Asian Development Tour (ADT) and the PGM Tour.

Sukree, who made six birdies including four in his opening five holes, said he was all fired up after ending a 14-month title drought last Saturday.
