Hua Hin (Thailand), Feb 15 (IANS)
Indian golfers Shiv Kapur and Jyoti Randhawa finished joint 11th and tied 15th, respectively, after the final round of the the $2 million True Thailand Classic here Sunday. Shiv fired four-under 68 to take his total to 13-under 275, while Randhawa managed 71 that drove his total to 277. Anirban Lahiri and Arjun atwal finished joint 21st and tied 31st, respectively. S.S.P Chowrasia took 77th spot at the par-72 Black Mountain Golf Club.
However, Australia's Andrew Dodt staged a dramatic fight back with a closing five-under 67 to win the title. Dodt's winning total of 16-under 272 ended a five-year title drought.
Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee's double-bogey on the 13th hole effectively ended all hopes of a local winner at the $2 million Thai showpiece as he signed off with a 71 to share second place with overnight leader Scott Hend of Australia.
Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat meanwhile bounced back from the disappointment of missing the cut in Malaysia to enjoy a tied-fourth finish alongside Canada's Richard T. Lee and Jason Knutzon of the United States following a 274 total.
After five years, Dodt completed his remarkable return to the winner's circle with a performance that left him searching for words.
