SSP Chawrasia and Anirban Lahiri brought home cards of two-under 69 and four-under 67 to sign off at tied 47th and joint 62nd respectively after the final round of the Turkish Airlines golf Open on Sunday.

Chawrasia fired four birdies against two bogeys to aggregate three-under 281, while for Lahiri it was the best round of the week as he blasted five birdies against a lone bogey to take his tally to par-284.

Denmark’s Thorbjørn Olesen scored 69 in the final round to lay claim to the crown after beating Englishman David Horsey (65) and China’s Li Haotong (65) by three shots.

A 10th tee starter, Chawrasia picked up a birdie at the 12th against a bogey at the 17th to be even-par at the turn. Another bogey at the 3rd meant he was one-over but the Indian produced a hattrick of birdies in the last three holes to make amends.

Playing his back nine first, Lahiri too was even-par after picking up a stroke at the 15th and then giving it away at the 18th hole. However, he birdied the 3rd, 5th, 6th and 9th holes to end the week on a high.

Chawrasia (69) was one-under 212 and tied-54th, while Anirban Lahiri (74) was three-over 216 and tied-69th after the contrasting third round here.
