The Duncan Putter
Ipswich junior captain Habebul Islam finished joint 13th in the Duncan Putter at Southerndown Golf Club in the Vale of Glamorgan. He had rounds of 75 72 and 70. There was a field of 92.
This the first Welsh order of merit event of the year which gives international and Walker Cup selectors the chance to assess early season form.
The event was won by Sweden’s Viktor Hagborg.
Habebul’s opening round of 75 in cold and very windy weather was enough to make the cut with two shots to spare. The second round was cancelled because of heavy rain.
On Sunday Habebul finished level with two players, Jake Hapgood and Tom Williams, who have been selected to represent Wales in the European Nations Championship at Sotogrande later this month.A third member of the Welsh national team, Ben Chamberlain, was only one shot better over four rounds.
