Brandon played an important role in leading the team to its victory by recording a one-under 71, bettering Singaporean teammates James Leow and Ryan Ang’s results, and ensuring his score was counted for the first time.

He went on to win the Singapore Junior Masters 2022 two weeks later, held from 28 to 30 November at the Laguna National Golf Resort Club. He led the table in the Open Division category against competitors from Malaysia, Sweden, and Thailand.
