       The victory has given a boost to his career as he missed out on a Tour card at Qualifying School 



Super Sandhu fired a two-under-par 70 and returned with a winning total of 12-under-par 276 to defeat Johannes Veerman (71) of the United States by one-shot at the Linkou International Golf and Country Club.


Sandhu showed his grit and power to claim his dream title. No wonder, the victory has come as a major booster to his career as he missed out on a Tour card at Qualifying School earlier this year. He made full use of this country exemption this week as he edged a battling Veerman to the title after trading three birdies against one bogey.


As we celebrate his win, we bring you some interesting nuggets about the Golfer:


  • Sandhu is the 10th first-time Asian Tour winner in 2017. He is also the second player after Jazz Janewattananond to win an event without a full Tour card.
  •  He is the third Indian to win on the Asian Tour in 2017 and the second player from his country after Gaganjeet Bhullar to win the Yeangder TPC.
  • The Yeangder TPC is the second event in Chinese Taipei which is sponsored by the Yeangder Group. Shiv Kapur won the first tournament (Yeangder Heritage) in April, completing a clean sweep for Indian golfers in Yeangder sponsored tournaments.
  • Sandhu took advantage of the par-five 10th hole this week where he made four birdies. In total, he accumulated 17 birdies against five bogeys.
  • With the victory Sandhu took home US$90,000 including a two-year winner’s exemption on the Asian Tour. He won the Yeangder TPC one day before his 29th birthday.
  • Prior to this victory, Sandhu’s best results on the Asian Tour was third at the 2011 SAIL Open in India and 2017 TAKE Solutions Masters.
