After going through seen years in wilderness, Shiv Kapur made it two-in-two winning the third edition of the Gujarat Kensville Challenge golf at the Kensville Golf and Country Club on Sunday. Going into the final round with a lead of four shots, Kapur suffered an early wobble, before steadying himself to card a one-under 71 and win by two shots over Andrew McArthur (69).
Kapur totaled tournament record 14-under 274 and enroute he also set a new course of 65 in the third round. McArthur aggregated 12-under 276 while four-time Challenge Tour winner, Philip Archer (69), who at one stage came within one shot of Kapur, ended third at 11-under 277.
Kapur became the second Indian winner of the Kensville Challenge after Gaganjeet Bhullar in 2011 and Rahil Gangjee was runner-up last year.
There was a more good news for the Indians, as veteran Mukesh Kumar (69) sank three birdies in last five holes to get into a tie for fifth place at seven-under 281, while last year's runner-up Rahil Gangjee (69) and the 2011 Kensville champion, Gaganjeet Bhullar (70), shared eighth place.
