Mewat (Haryana), April 12, 2013, PTI: 2:19 IST
Rashid Khan of Delhi won the PGTI Players’ Championship after scoring 39 points in the final round of the tournament at the Classic Golf Resort here on Friday.

Rashid’s final round score took his total to 159 points. Chandigarh’s Gurbaaz Mann was the runner-up with a total score of 157 points.

The stableford points scoring format was followed during the tournament. Under this scoring format, each par accounts for two points, each birdie for three points, each eagle for four points, each bogey for one point and each double bogey (or worse) for zero points.

Rashid (40-40-40-39), who was two off the lead after round three, made a steady start with six pars and then produced a fabulous chip-in from 15 yards for birdie on the seventh. Rashid’s next birdie came on the ninth where he landed his third shot within three feet of the pin.

He then hit it out of bounds on the 11th and dropped a bogey. The 22-year-old sank a 20-foot eagle putt on the 14th to all but seal his third professional title. Rashid picked up a cheque of Rs 4,84,950 for his effort.
