Anirban Lahiri signed off 2013 with his fourth title of the year and 13th of his career.
Anirban Lahiri gave a perfect start to the tournament by registering eight birdies against two bogeys in round one. His putter was hot as he made birdie putts from 15 to 25 feet on the third, eighth and 17th holes. He also hit birdies on the ninth, tenth and 18th.
Lahiri started very well with birdies on second and third though he dropped a shot on fourth. But when he birdied seventh, he was momentarily in shared lead with Garcia at 11-under. On the back nine, he birdied 11th, 16th and 17th which has a Island green.
Anirban Lahiri's flawless round included six birdies and an eagle, while Sergio Garcia had five birdies and an ace with no bogeys and Rose landed an eagle and three birdies against one bogey.
Starting in the second group from the 10th tee, Bhullar looked set to go to seven-under but the putt on the ninth, his last hole, dodged the cup.
Shiv Kapur, lying tied second at nine-under after three rounds, finished at six-under 274 and picked up USD 19,695 as his winnings.
