Oscar Zetterwall triumphed in extra-time.

Jakarta, Indonesia: Sweden’s Oscar Zetterwall enjoyed the victorious feeling for the second time in four months when he pipped American Johannes Veerman in a play-off to win the US$100,000 Ciputra Golfpreneur Tournament presented by Panasonic.
Zetterwall shrugged off Veerman’s challenge by sinking a birdie putt at the first extra hole to win his second Asian Development Tour (ADT) title event following his breakthrough in the Philippines in April.
“This victory means a lot to me. I’ll climb up the Order of Merit and bring myself closer to securing my Asian Tour card,” said Zetterwall, who moved up to fourth place on the money list.
After missing out on an opportunity to earn his Asian Tour card at Qualifying School in January, the Swede was determined to make amends by playing well on the ADT.
His efforts paid off again but only after surviving several heart-stopping moments at Damai Indah Golf’s BSD Course.
“I was one-over after six holes and I knew I had to focus to have any chance of winning,” said the Swede who made birdies on seven and eight and went further ahead with three birdies in four holes after the turn.
But Zetterwall opened the door for Veerman when he double-bogeyed 14.
The American made three birdies in his last four holes to force a play-off with Zetterwall after they finished regulation play at 20-under-par 268.
The Swede, who signed for a closing 69, prevailed thanks to a 12-foot birdie putt on the par-five 18th play-off hole. Veerman could only manage a par.
