THE FINAL DAY KEPT US WAITING
The three-way tie at the top with Johnson Poh (SIN), WooJin Jung (KOR) and Peter Karmis (SA) kept the challenge going through the first nine with each of the players showing their ability. Close enough to keep us guessing as to whether there would be a play-off. The back nine told a slightly different story and it turned out there was no need for any more as Johnson Poh maintained his momentum and ended with a stylish 68 to give a total of 8 under par over the four rounds and the title of OneAsia Q School Champion for 2018. Second place went to WooJin Jung on 4 under and third to Peter Karmis on 1 under for the tournament. The Koreans continued their strong showing with 2 in the top 5 and 5 in the top 10.
