Quek, Lam, Choo relive amateur battles
Singaporean professional golfer Quincy Quek.

Quincy Quek, Lam Zhiqun and Choo Tze Huang relived the battles of their amateur days when they claimed the top three positions in the first round of the $70,000 Goodpack/Singapore Professional Golfers Association President's Cup at Warren Tuesday.

Quek and Lam shared the perch on two-under 69, while Choo finished a lone third on 70 on the challenging and narrow layout at Choa Chu Kang in the final event on the SPGA calendar. Quek, who finished a reasonable 20th at last week's Resorts World Manila Asian Tour event, birdied the second, eighth and 13th holes and suffered a bogey on the 12th.

Lam had a stuttering start with a bogey on the third hole to shoot one over on the way out. But he returned home with a bang, stringing birdies on the 10th, 15th and 17th holes.

Singapore's top pro Mardan Mamat is joint-fourth on 71, with Peter Ang.
