Qualifying School 2011 – Mithun Perera Turns Pro

Jan 8, 2011 1:47:26 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Sri Lanka’s best amateur golfer was runner-up in the Qualifying School for the 2011 Aircel Professional Golf Tour India (PGTI) Season and was among 39 players from the final qualifying stage to earn full cards.
Mithun Perera missed the top spot by one stroke when Australia’s Blair Wilson carded a final round par 72.  Mithun was ahead of Wilson by 4 strokes going into the third round.  However, his 75 to Wilsons 68 was too much of a turnaround to catch up on the final day despite carding a two under which was the best score for the day. Wilson held his nerve despite a shaky start with a double bogey on the second and a bogey on the ninth which was compensated by bogies on the 5th, 11th and 15th to end the day even par and total 285 to Mithun’s 286.
Rashid Khan of India who was joint leader after round three, faltered badly with a double bogey at the 15th to slip into third place.
