Sunday, October 16, 2011
NEW DELHI — David Gleeson shot a 4-under 68 in the final round to win the Indian Open, his third career title on the Asian Tour, by three strokes over local favorite Chiragh Kumar on Sunday.
The 27-year-old Taipei-based Australian was 4 under after five holes and made 13 consecutive pars in the final round to finish with a tournament record 20-under 268. His round included an eagle on the par-4 third when he chipped in from 140 yards.
Kumar shot a final-round 70 for a career-best finish that also secured an Asian Tour card for 2012.
Ross Bain of Scotland and Lu Wei-Chih of Taipei, winner of last week's Yeangder TPC, shot matching 67s to share third place on 272.
