NHA TRANG — Brazilian Adilson Da Silva won the 2023 Vinpearl DIC Legends Việt Nam, on December 2 in Nha Trang, Khánh Hòa Province.

The three days of competitions of the first Legends Tour in Việt Nam and Southeast Asia, saw many changes on the leaderboard.

Joakim Haeggman and Andrew Marshall, the two golfers placed third after the first two days did not reach their peak and dropped in the rankings. Meanwhile, Scott Hend and Ricardo Gonzalez were in good form and rose to the high positions.

However, none of them could beat Da Silva who maintained their best performance from the beginning to the end.

He suffered a bogey in the early hole but his birdies in the holes 10, 11 and 12 helped him to stay on top.
