Mane shoots 71 to clinch Gujarat Open

Ahmedabad, May 11, 2013, PTI:  22:24 IST
Karnataka Golf Association’s Udayan Mane lifted the Tata Steel IGU Gujarat Open Amateur Championship after a fine final-round effort under overcast conditions at the par-72 Kalhaar Blues & Greens Golf Club on Friday.

Mane started the day tied sixth with a 54-hole score of three-over with six pars and two birdies on the first eight holes before a bogey on the ninth to go out two-over for the week.

On the back-nine, he again began positively with three birdies before he bogeyed the par-four 15th which has bothered him all week. Another bogey on the 18th saw him finish with a winning score of one-over-par 289.

DLF Golf & Country Club’s Manu Gandas maintained his overnight second place by turning in a card of two-over-par and 290 for the week. Tour veteran Simarjeet Singh had a very disappointing round of 10-over-par to finish in the sixth place.

Tollygunge Club’s Viraj Mandappa grabbed third place with a score of three-over-par 291 after a tight final round of even par 72. Syed Saqib Ahmed (293) and Feroz Singh Garewal (294) complete the top-five.

Abhijit on top
Defending champion Abhijit Chadha held on to the top spot despite carding a modest one-under 71 in the third round of the Surya Nepal Masters golf tournament in Kathmandu on Friday.

Chadha (200) was three strokes clear of second-placed local favourite Shivaram Shrestha at the Gokara Forest Golf Resort. Shiva shot a four-under in the third round.
