Bangkok: Anirban Lahiri missed a fistful of rather easy looking putts to turn in his first over-par round and finish tied-fourth at the $1 million Thailand Golf Championships at the Amata Spring Country Club here on Sunday.
Spaniard Sergio Garcia (68), who had his girlfriend Katharina Boehm as the caddie this week, held off World No. 3 Henrik Stenson (68) to win his first title of 2013.
Garcia finished at 22-under 266 and stayed four clear of Stenson, winner of the FedEx Cup this year. Stenson was 18-under 270. Lahiri finished at 13-under 275, nine behind Garcia, but he was top Asian Tour player.
Tied fourth with Lahiri were US Open winner Justin Rose (72), the 2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel (67) and Japan Tour’s young star Yuki Kono at 13-under 275.
Gaganjeet Bhullar tied at 10th and Jeev Milkha Singh (69) with six birdies and three bogeys, shot his best round of the week to be tied 36th.
