Kapur is best

Ahmedabad: After seven years in the wilderness, Shiv Kapur on Sunday notched up his second successive title, winning the third edition of the Gujarat Kensville Challenge golf by two strokes.

Going into the final round with a lead of four shots, Kapur suffered an early wobble, before steadying himself to bring home a card of one-under 71 to set a tournament record total of 14-under 274 here.

Kapur, who had set a new course record of 65 in the third round, was two strokes ahead of Andrew McArthur, who aggregated 12-under 276 at the Kensville Golf and Country Club.

Four-time Challenge Tour winner, Philip Archer (69), who at one stage came within one shot of Kapur, ended third at 11-under 277.

Kapur thus became the second Indian winner of the Kensville Challenge after Gaganjeet Bhullar in 2011. Rahil Gangjee was the runner-up last year.

Mukesh Kumar (69) sank three birdies in the last five holes to get into a tie for fifth place at seven-under 281, while Gangjee (69) and Bhullar (70), shared eighth place.
