Indian golfer Rahil Gangjee booked his place in next month's UBS Hong Kong Open after securing a top-three finish with a five-under 67 in the international qualifying tournament on Wednesday.
Gangjee will tee off against the likes of Korea's Yang Yong-eun, Chinese Taipei's Lin Wen-tang and Northern Irish youngster Rory Mcllroy in the USD 2.5 million event scheduled next month.
Gangjee, with one Asian Tour win to his record, posted a five-under 67 when play was finally completed after being suspended due to inclement weather at the Palm Resort Golf and Country Club yesterday.
Meanwhile the UBS Hong Kong Open will also give Thailand's Udorn Duangdecha another chance to seek his maiden win on the Asian Tour after he returned a matching 67 for a place in the third-last event counting towards the 2009 Asian Tour Order of Merit.
England's Nick Redfern also posted a 67 to take the third and final spot.
