Foshan City: Shiv Kapur came within a shot of getting into a play-off but then had to settle for a share of the second place in the Foshan Open on the European Challenge Tour, here, on Sunday.
Kapur, fighting to get his card for the 2014 European Tour, picked up 20, 617 euros. The result also saw him climb from 36th to 19th place.
Still, Kapur will need to do some work to get into the top-15 to earn the card.
Kapur ended his round with bogeys on the first and 18th but hit five other birdies in his round of three-under 69.
A nerveless par putt from 12 feet earned Nacho Elvira his first professional title at the Foshan Open and moved him within sight of a place on the European Tour.
Kapur, who was lying fourth at the end of the third round moved from 10-under to 14-under when he came to the 18th tee. He was playing with Tyrell Hatton, who was at 13-under. But in the group pairing behind them — both Elvira and Sam Walker were at 14-under.
The par-5 18th had yielded a few birdies and Kapur went for a birdie for that would take him to 15-under and set the bar for Elvira and Walker.
