Arjun Atwal finished as the top Indian at Tied 29th despite a  final round of one-over 71 at the season-ending UBS Hong Kong Open, on Sunday.

Atwal had rounds of 70, 70, 66 and 71 to total three-under 277.

Gaganjeet Bhullar (71) was even par 280 and Tied-45th, while Shiv Kapur, who was Tied-14th overnight had a nightmarish final round with three double bogeys for a round of a 77 and a total of two-over 282 to finish Tied-54th.

Australian Sam Brazel enjoyed a life-changing victory at the season-ending event, sinking an eight-foot birdie on the last hole for a dramatic win.

The 37-year-old Brazel showed nerves of steel under pressure to fire a final round of two-under-par 68 and lift his maiden Asian Tour title by one stroke with an aggregate of 13-under-par 267 at the Hong Kong Golf Club.

Brazel, who earned USD 330,330 and finished seventh on the final Asian Tour Order of Merit, pipped playing partner and Ryder Cup star Rafa Cabrera Bello, who missed a long birdie attempt at the closing hole in the USD 2 million tournament sanctioned by the Asian Tour, European Tour and Hong Kong Golf Association.

Andrew Dodt of Australia and England’s Tommy Fleetwood, who were in the thick of battle on a glorious Sunday afternoon, shared third place on 269 after a 68 and 66 respectively while Malaysia’s Danny Chia emerged as the top Asian in tied eighth place after a closing 67.
