Karawang, November 9 LotusLakes Golf Club witnessed the rise of George Aditya Gandranata, this Indonesian player who has made the nation proud in various national and international tournaments and finally returned to the highest podium in the Indonesian Tourism Golf Pro Series XVII held at LotusLakes Golf Club, Karawang, West Java. Playing in the champion flight with Jonathan Tanoto and Almay Rayhan, George got very good results with 7 birdies and 2 bogeys on the last day of this tournament.

With this result, the Indonesian Golf Pro Series won a new champion, after the previous series champion was held by Syukrizal. George beat Almay Rayhan, who had to settle for second place, and Benita Kasiadi in third place with -2, or a total of 214 strokes.
