Jakarta: A flawless final round did the trick as Gaganjeet Bhullar became the latest Indian with an Asian Tour title under his belt when the 21-year-old Kapurthala golfer lifted the Indonesia President Invitational title here on Sunday.

Bhullar’s final round of five-under 67 not only earned him his maiden Asian Tour title but also made up for the heartbreak of finishing runner-up in the event two years ago.

Bhullar’s four-day total of 22-under was two shots clear of Australia’s Adam Blyth, who shot a 68 for the lone second place at Damai Indah Golf-Bumi Serpong Damai course here.

Bhullar also pocketed $63,400 cheque for his exploits.

“I’ve got no words to describe how happy I am,” said Bhullar, who was pipped by Filipino Juvic Pagunsan’s birdie-eagle finish in 2007. — PTI
