Shenzhen China:A poor back-nine marred their day as the Indian team of Jeev Milkha Singh and Jyoti Randhawa turned in a modest even-par 72, their worst card of the week, to sign off tied 14th at the 55th World Cup of Golf here on Sunday.
The duo ended the USD 5.5 million tournament with a total of 16-under 272 after mixing three birdies against an equal number of bogeys, all of which came in the back nine.
The final round was played in the foursomes format, in which players take alternate shots to complete a hole.
Starting the day tied ninth, the Indians played out a flawless front-nine with birdies on the second and fourth holes. But their form took a dip in the backward journey as they stumbled to bogeys on the 10th, 13th and 18th.
Although, they found a birdie on the 17th but it was wasn't enough to fetch a top-10 finish on the leaderboard.
Italy won the prestigious event for the first time after brothers Edoardo and Francesco Molinari posted a four-under 68 in the final round for a 29-under 259 total to edge out Ireland and Sweden, who took a share of the second place.
The Irish pair of Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy and Swedes Robert Karlsson and Henrik Stenson turned in cards of 70 and 69 respectively.
