Ashbeer clinches Surya Nepal Masters in dramatic fashion

The Indian amateur made two late birdies to secure the title by two shots over Rupak Acharya with a tournament total of 11-under 277.

Rupak fell agonisingly short and despite holding the lead briefly in the final round, his last-round three-under 69 could only take his tournament total to nine-under 279.
Sri Lankan amateur Mithun Perera finished third at two-under 286.

Bangladesh's Md Milon Ahmed finished ahead of Shiva Ram Shrestha in fourth place after the big-hitting local made a double bogey on the final hole to drop down the leaderboard to fifth place.But despite finishing second, Rupak Acharya took home the winner's cheque of 4,86,000 Nepali Rupees as Ashbeer, being an amateur, is not eligible to receive the prize money.Ashbeer, however, took home the country championship trophy as a result of being the leading amateur in the field.
