Cunning wins Indian Open

New Delhi: Mike Cunning of the United States won the $300,000 Royal Challenge Indian Open golf championship, his maiden victory on the Asian PGA Tour, with a record 18-under 270 at the Delhi Golf club course today. It turned out to be a runaway victory for the 45-year-old American, as the runner-up, Rick Gibson of Canada, also the second best in the previous edition, was five strokes behind at 275. The Indian challenge fizzled out with current Asian Order Of Merit leader and overnight sole leader Jyoti Randhawa finishing a joint sixth along with Arjun Atwal at 10-under 278. Coming into the final round with 10-under, Cunning got off to a great start -- three birdies in a row -- and never looked back, finishing with three birdies on the trot on the 13th, 14th and 15th and another two on the 17th and the 18th to card an amazing final day score of eight-under 64.
