Fernandez-Castano wins playoff in Singapore
Sunday, November 13, 2011
SINGAPORE — Spain’s Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano won the rain-delayed Singapore Open on Monday, beating Juvic Pagunsan of the Philippines with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff.
After tying at 14-under 199 Sunday after the third and final round, Pagunsan and Fernandez-Castano teed off on the playoff hole before play was suspended for 90 minutes because of rain and the threat of lightning. The storm let up briefly, allowing players to hit one more shot before more rain stopped play for good.
Anthony Kim (64) and Louis Oosthuizen (65) tied for third, a stroke back.
Phil Mickelson shot a 70 on Sunday to tie for 33rd at 5 under.
Fernandez-Castano earned $990,520 for his fifth victory on the European Tour. The $6 million event also was sanctioned by the Asian Tour.
