Shiv Kapur finished as the best Indian golfer in the Queen' with a final round of 3-under 67, placing him Tied-sixth on Sunday. Five birdies against two bogeys saw him finish the week at 11-under 269 at the Queen's Cup hosted by Jaidee Foundation.

 

 

Among other Indians, M Dharma (70) and Abhijit Chadha (68) ere T-28, Rashid Khan (69) was T-38; Kshitij Naveed Kaul (70  and and Honey Baisoya (66) were T-48 and Amardip Malik (78) had  a sharp fall to T-62 after being in Top-10 first two days.

The 24-year-old Filipino dug deep into his reserves to hold off the challenge from the fast-chasing field after he birdied four of his closing six holes to reign supreme on a 20-under-par 260 total at the Legacy Golf Club.

 

 

Tabuena’s last victory came in 2015 when he secured his maiden win at his National Open. He traded five birdies against a lone bogey on the first hole to take his long-awaited return into the Asian Tour winner’s circle.
