Ahlawat (63-59-61-62), the overnight leader by one shot, made a tentative start with a birdie and bogey on the second and third holes. The tall and lanky golfer then stepped on the gas with birdies on the seventh, ninth, 10th and 11th to build a lead that gave him little to worry. His bogey on the 17th followed by a birdie on the 18th hole helped to seal his name on the winner’s cheque. “My last win as a pro was three years back and ever since I came close but could never finish it off. This win today makes me and my team very happy that our hard work has paid off,” said Ahlawat after his win. “I am very satisfied with my short game and my chipping specifically, and that I think, played a critical role in my performance today.” Kapil (59-62-63-64) started on a conservative note, picking a shot on the fourth, his only birdie before he took the turn. His bogey on the seventh hole brought his front nine at level par. On his back nine, he got a birdie on the 11th hole before squandering it with a bogey on the 13th. Kapil, thereafter, made a quick recovery to make two back-to-back birdies on the 14th and 15th holes to wrap up his round at two-under 64 for the day. Mysore’s Yashas Chandra MS carded the day’s best round of six-under 60 to finish at tied third with Sri Lankan N Thangaraja, with identical total scores of 15-under 249. Gurugram’s Manu Gandas and Noida’s Rashid Khan finished as tied fifth with matching totals of 14-under 250.
