Poom Powers to Victory

Poom claimed his second Asian Tour title.

Bangaluru, India: Poom Saksansin saw off the challenge of home favourite Khalin Joshi to complete a convincing wire-to-wire victory at the inaugural TAKE Solutions Masters.
The 24-year-old Thai never lost his lead on the last day as he returned with a four-under-par 67 to claim his second Asian Tour title with a winning total of 16-under 268 at the Karnataka Golf Association (KGA) Golf Course.
Poom said: “I didn’t expect to win and be the leader for four days! I was very surprised I was the leader after the third round because I played so badly. But after leading for three days, it would have been very disappointing to lose.
“This win means I’m back in form. I injured my back before so this is a very good win for me.”
Joshi, who hails from Bengaluru and grew up playing golf at KGA, battled tooth-and-nail before settling for second place following a round of 67. Three bogeys in a round of seven birdies dashed his hopes for a first Asian Tour title.
Ajeetesh Sandhu (66) of India finished a further shot back in lone third place on 274 while Rory Hie of Indonesia, Divyanshu Bajaj and Abhinav Lohan of India settled for joint fourth at the US$300,000 Asian Tour event.
Poom’s lead was only briefly threatened when Joshi birdied his opening hole but the Thai held his nerve and claimed a well-deserved victory after posting five birdies.
