Five amateur golfers were crowned individual champions of their respective handicap divisions at the Singapore Press Holdings World Golfers Championship 2014 held yesterday at Sentosa's Serapong course.

Cody Lim, Sushminder Singh, Tan Horng Chiang, David Seow and Brian Chen, won their respective categories to qualify for the WGC tournament, which will be held from Nov 1 to 8 in Durban, South Africa.

There, the five will play two practice rounds and four tournament rounds. They will compete for the team title, as well as individual honours in their respective handicap divisions.

Singapore won the WGC team event in 2008.

The SPH WGC began with two qualifying rounds played last month at Sentosa Golf Club's Tanjong Course.

It attracted a total of 240 golfers over the two rounds, with the top 80 playing in yesterday's finals round.
