Veer Ahlawat top Indian at eighth place at Blue Canyon Phuket Championship

Five birdies against just one bogey on the back nine of the fourth and final round saw young Veer Ahlawat record a fine Top-10 finish at the USD 1 million Blue Canyon Phuket Championship here on Monday.

He ended Tied-8 and equalled his best finish in an Asian Tour event — he was T-8 at the Panasonic Open India in 2019.

In the first event of the Asian Tour after a 20-month hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Ahlawat was the best Indian with rounds of 70-70-67-67 for 14-under 274.

Among other Indians, Aadil Bedi (70) was T-41 and Ajeetesh Sandhu (70) was T-51. S Chikkarangappa (72) and Viraj Madappa (71), who had good starts in the tournament, finished T-55 and Khalin Joshi (71) was T-61.

Jeev Milkha Singh struggled to 80 on the final day and was 74th.

Chinese-Taipeiโ€™s Chan Shih-chang won the Championship. He shot a final round four-under-par 68 to finish on 18 under par and beat Thailandโ€™s Sadom Kaewkanjana and Joohyung Kim from Korea by one shot.
