Bengal Tiger Line (BTL) was not going to let a pandemic stop one of the liner sector’s most coveted sporting events, even if the legendary "Tigeress" table service was replaced by cardboard cutouts and the game restricted to Singapore residents.

The popular annual golf tournament teed off the 31st BTL Singapore Golf Masters on a sunny Friday in mid-September at the city-state’s renowned Sentosa Golf Club.

The game was conducted under Singapore’s strict Covid-19 restrictions, which meant players had to don face masks and play in socially distanced teams.
