Siem Reap, Cambodia – Filipino Elmer Salvador finished second in the inaugural $300,000 HANDA FALDO Cambodian Classic after losing to Asian Tour rookie David Lipsky in the first playoff hole. Salvador had a chance to win the tournament outright in the 18th hole but he missed his putt. He settled for a playoff where Qualifying School winner Lipsky sank a clinching chip-in birdie.
The win was worth $47,550 for the American while Salvador pocketed $32,550 (P1.38-million) for his effort. Salvador is still seeking his maiden win in the Asian Tour as he also lot in the playoffs in last year’s ISPS Handa Singapore Classic.
