Albright expressed his happiness shortly after the win and he believed it would be able to give encouragement for him to work harder and improve.
"Such achievement would definitely be able to give me some kind of motivation to improve," said Albright who just joined the UUMNGA.
Director of the 2015 Sintok Masters Tournament, Zahid Ariffin said the today’s tournament was quite challenging due to downpour which saw a torrent of water gushing down the green.
"Our Sintok Masters Tournament has been well-received among golfers throughout the country," he said.
The prizes were presented to the winners by UUM Vice-Chancellor, Prof Dato' Seri Dr Mohamed Mustafa Ishak during the prize giving ceremony.
