Singh makes 18 pars to win in Austria

ASSOCIATED PRESS

OBERWALTERSDORF, Austria – Jeev Milkha Singh had 18 consecutive pars for a 71 Sunday to win the 54-hole Bank Austria Open by one stroke.

The Indian golfer, who had a four-stroke lead going into the final round, finished at 15-under 198 to hold off a challenge by Simon Wakefield, who had a 68.

Another Englishman, Iain Pyman was tied for third at 12 under, along with the Swedish trio of Martin Erlandsson, Pelle Edberg and Michael Jonzon, and Australia's Peter Fowler.

“I feel very fortunate to win with 18 pars,” said Singh, who took his third European Tour title after winning both the Volvo Masters and China Open in 2006.

“I think the golfing gods were looking out for me,” Singh said. “They did not want a playoff with the bad weather forecast.”

The event was reduced to 54 holes after rain canceled play on Thursday.

Final scores with relation to par from the Bank Austria Open, played June 6-8 at the par-71, 7,071-yard Fontana Golf Club in Vienna, Austria (Note: earnings in euros; a-amateur):
