Indra’s Show

Indra Hermawan won his second IGT title of the season and his third IGT title since 2017. The 6th Series IGT was proof of Indra's maturity in overcoming the difficulties he faced at the three-day event. 

Indra Hermawan closed his final round on one-under, 69, to secure his first wire-to-wire victory and third Indonesian Golf Tour title since February 2017. He topped the leaderboard with a total score of one-under-par 209. 
 
The 37-year-old, who won his second IGT title at the 4th Series last June, traded five birdies for four bogeys to result in a three-stroke triumph over Adrian Halimi (212) in the IDR200 million event. Over the first nine, Indra’s game had not been looking convincing; two bogeys against one birdie meant Indra shared the lead with Adrian who shot one-over par.

“I felt like I lost my feeling when I play the first seven holes. Whatever, my shot felt wrong. I think I was tired after competing on the Asian Development Tour a week before. Then, on the second nine holes, I just kept telling myself to focus on my game," said Indra, who finished at T12 in the Ciputra Golfpreneur Tournament two days before the 6th Series.

It was a birdie on the 10th that boosted Indra’s motivation. “I added three more birdies [on the 11th, 14th, and 15th]. On the last three holes, I lost my focus. Therefore, I made two bogeys. I still forced myself to survive. Finally, I still made one-under by the end of the game,” added Indra.

Despite being the only player who was able to score in the red at the tournament, Indra also faced problems with his game on day two. Shooting three-over, 73, on the second day, Indra remarked, “I never made a good shot that day.”

However, Indra was able to evaluate his poor performance during the second round to rise in the back nine of the third round. His third title is evidence of his success in overcoming his internal problems with game plan.
