A bogey-bogey finish denied Arjun Atwal a place among the top five in the BMW Charity Pro-Am golf tournament.

Greensville (USA):

A bogey-bogey finish denied Arjun Atwal a place among the top five even though his final round of one-under 71 was enough to fetch him the tied eighth position at the BMW Charity Pro-Am golf tournament in Greensville.

The Orlando-based golfer finished with a four-day total of 11-under 275 and his exploit also helped him move up to the 14th place in the Nationwide Tour money leaders' list. At the end of the season, top 25 in this list would get their PGA Tour card for the next season.

Atwal overcame the third hole bogey to go three-under as he approached the 17th hole but the next two holes cost him as many shots to mar his round.

Meanwhile, David Mathis kept the promise he had made to his wife and brought home a final round card of 68 to complete a wire-to-wire triumph at 20-under 266.
