Glade One, Ahmedabad, set in place opportunities for 9 hole courses to host PGTI events in a new 54 hole format in which the first two rounds are played over 9 holes only after which a cut is applied.
34-year-old Om Prakash Chouhan of Mhow shot 35-33-64-67 (-17, 199) to clinch his first title since the Tata Open in Dec 2018 and make amends for his heartbreaking loss the week before at Kalhaar.
The 54-hole event carried three Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) points, half of a usual 72 hole PGTI event.
The 3486 yards, par-36 Gary Player, designed course saw Chouhan beating Gurgaon’s Manu Gandas, the overnight joint leader, by four to claim his sixth title on the PGTI Tour.
Other notable players in the field included Asian Tour winners – Rashid Khan 40-33-66-69 (-8), who finished tied-3rd, Kalin H Joshi 34-34-73-69 (-6) finished tied-8th and Ajeetesh Sandhu finished 14th with his scores of 35-34-72-71 (-4). Last week’s winner at Kalhaar Blues & Greens, Chikkarangappa S. of Bangalore, shot 35-36-67-72 (-6) to finish tied-8th at Glade One.
