NEW DELHI, AUG. 31. Despite a typhoon wreaking havoc on the Keya Golf Club course over the weekend, Indian golfer Chiranjeev Milkha Singh closed with a creditable three-under 68 to notch his second top-10 finish of the season on the Japanese PGA Tour.
Jeev, who rallied brilliantly after being placed tied for the 87th place following a two-over 73 start on Thursday, finally tallied four-under 280 at Fukuoka, according to information reaching here today.
The Chandigarh star, enjoying a revival of form this season, had earlier finished runner-up at the Munsingwear Open KSB Cup. The finish also elevated him to 35th place on the Japanese Tour Money List.
Steven Conran of Australia, who secured his first victory on the Japanese Tour in seven years, won the tournament.
The New South Wales golfer birdied his final two holes and a two-under 69 on the final day was enough to give him a one-stroke victory over Japanese duo of Toru Taniguchi and Takashi Kamiyana at seven-under 273.
On the final day, Jeev hit a purple patch with successive birdies on the fourth, fifth and sixth holes and was four-under following another on the tenth.
However, a bogey on the par-4 15th stopped his charge and he finished on three-under 68. PTI
