Chawrasia finishes Tied-36th in China

Beijing, Apr 30 (PTI) Indian golfer SSP Chawrasia rounded off the week at the Volvo China Open with a one-under 71 that saw him finish Tied-36th, here today.

Chawrasia once again had a fair number of birdies at five, but gave away two bogeys and a costly double on the back nine at the par-4 14th.

“Overall my game is looking fine, but I am giving away too many shots and missing some small ones (putts). I had 16 birdies, but gave away 10 shots including a double. Maybe I need to work on that,” Chawrasia said.

Alexander Levy became the first man to win the Volvo China Open twice as he defeated Dylan Frittelli in a play-off at Topwin Golf and Country Club.

The 2014 champion began the final round seven shots behind the overnight leader but birdied the last in a 67 to get to 17 under and force a play-off.

Pablo Larraz bal began the day as Frittelli’s closest challenger and the Spaniard signed for a closing 72 to finish at 16 under in sole third. A shot clear of Austrian Bernd Wiesberger and England’s Chris Wood.
