Golf: Yuvraj Singh Sandhu Wins Maiden PGTI Title

Golfer Yuvraj Singh Sandhu claimed his maiden PGTI title in style as he carded a final-round score of eight-under-64 and an impressive overall score of 23-under-265 to win the Indian Oil Servo Masters Golf 2021 tournament at Digboi on Saturday. Bengaluru golfer M Dharma came second with an overall total of 17-under-271.

The 24-year-old Yuvraj, the overnight leader by two shots, came up with an eagle, eight birdies and two bogeys in round four to pick up the winning cheque worth Rs. 9,69,900 and thus zoom from 11th place to sixth position in the PGTI Order of Merit for 2020-2021 with his season’s earnings moving to a total of Rs. 33,69,400.

Sandhu had enjoyed an exceptional season prior to landing in Digboi with nine previous top-10s including six in the last seven events. The two-time winner on the PGTI Feeder Tour began the day with a bogey on the first but soon regained ground with birdies on the third, fifth and seventh. He chipped in on the fifth.

From the third till the eighth hole, M Dharma was breathing down Yuvraj’s neck as the former sank five birdies to trail the latter by just one shot. However, a couple of erratic shots led to Dharma’s double-bogey on the ninth.

Sandhu then made a crucial chip-putt birdie on the 11th to seize the momentum as he got on a hot streak making three birdies, an eagle and a birdie on the next five holes that stretched his lead to seven shots and sealed the deal for him.
