Saksansin Lands Indonesian Spoils

Saksansin Lands Indonesian Spoils

Poom Saksansin clinched his third Asian Tour title after winning the Indonesian Masters by a comfortable three strokes.

Thailand star Saksansin, who claimed his maiden win at this tournament back in 2016, held a three-shot lead going into Sunday’s final round and he never looked like giving up that advantage at Royale Jakarta Golf Club.

The 25-year-old mixed five birdies with one bogey to sign for a four-under-par 68 and finish on -20, three shots clear of compatriot Jazz Janewattananond who went round in 65.

Another of Thailand’s rising stars, Panuphol Pittayarat, was a further two strokes back in third on -15 whilst Sweden’s Henrik Stenson was the highest-placed European on -14 after a round of 71.

Justin Rose, who could have returned to world number one with a top-12 finish, carded a three-over-par 75 to finish in a three-way share of 17th alongside John Catlin and Steven Jeffress.

The Englishman’s disappointing end to the tournament means American Brooks Koepka, who successfully defended his US Open crown earlier this year, will end 2018 top of the OWGR’s.
