Golfer Shiv Kapur Ends 12-year Halt For Asian Tour Title In Taiwan

Indian golfer Shiv Kapur completed a 12-year wait for his second Asian Tour title when he turned in a blotch-free eight-under 64 in the final round to clinch the inaugural Yeangder Heritage.

 

The 35-year-old was three-under for the front-nine and five-under for last seven holes to card 64 to finish as the clubhouse leader at 16-under 272.

 

“It feels great to finally win once again. After losing my European Tour card in 2015 and then being laid low by a liver abscess in 2016, it is a big relief,” Kapur said after the triumph.

Gavin Green (67) and Yikeun Chang (68) were tied for second at 14-under.

“It’s been a long, long time and this will give me a lot of confidence. I knew it was going to be a low-scoring final round and my putter stayed hot,” said Kapur, whose 12-year wait for a second Asian Tour title exceeded the 11-year-wait by his friend and senior colleague Gaurav Ghei.
