HÀ NỘI — Nguyễn Quốc Mến won the FLC Golf Championship on October 2 at Bình Định Province’s FLC Golf Links.

The golfer from Hà Nội overcame about 800 competitors in a three-day event, shooting 75.

“I was a little bit lucky at this event and performed my best,” said Mến.

“This year’s tournament featured many tough opponents and I had to work hard to take the trophy,” said Mến who received a bonus of nearly VNĐ1 billion (US$44,800).

Organisers also presented sideline awards, including one for female golfer Bùi Thị Hồng Thanh who shot a hole in one, winning a car worth VNĐ3.3 billion ($148,000). — VNS
