Myanmar pair win the Nations Cup

By Nyi Nyi Aung and Steve Finch

MYANMAR'S Kyi Hla Han and Aung Win celebrated victory in the Nations Cup on September 21 week after a decisive five-shot win at Singapore's Laguna National Golf and Country Club. 

Myanmar beat India into second place after opening up a two-shot lead against third-placed China in the third of the competition's four rounds.

For Kyi Hla Han, 42, the victory comes after Myanmar twice came close to winning the trophy in 1999 and 2002.

"We knew we had a good cushion...winning by five was the icing on the cake," he said.

The pair had never played together in a tournament before, despite sharing the same coach, Chan Ran, who is Kyi Hla Han's brother.

"During the practice round I felt under pressure playing with Kyi Hla Han and played terribly, I was hitting the ball everywhere. But when the
first round started I settled down and did what I know best -I'm
used to winning," Aung Win said

Chan Ran said the pairing of youth and experience had paid off. Kyi Hla Han is well known for his big hitting off the tee and his work out of the bunker, while Aung Win is a strong putter.

"The guy puts the ball in the hole from anywhere on the green," Chan Ran said.

The victory qualifies the Myanmar pair for the World Cup in the United States later this year, a competition with a total prize pool of US$4 million. It will be the fourth time veteran Kyi Hla Han has competed in the event.

For Aung Win it will be the first time he has competed in the US. The Myanmar Golf Federation is already talking about what could be achieved at the World Cup and believes 26-year-old Aung Win has a great future.

The World Cup will be played at the Kiawah Island course in South Carolina from November 13 to 16.
