Golf: Bangchak Championship
Just 2 months after winning the 22nd Singapore National Amateur Championship, Brandon Han Zhen Guang (Extended DBS) has set the bar higher for himself by winning his first overseas title at the Bangchak Championship 2022 in Thailand. He came out tops after posting a one-under 215 (69, 74, 72) to finish 14 strokes ahead of his rivals. On his win, Brandon shared, “My biggest win was the Singapore National Amateur Championship. But this win is quite a significant one for me because it is my first one overseas...This is one of my most successful years as an amateur. What I did differently was to prioritise golf a bit more. What really changed was my mindset… I just became a bit more determined and had a desire to be better day after day."
