Jakarta: Gaganjeet Bhullar won the BANK -JCB tournament for the second time in his career on Monday after closing with a four-under-par 68, while Jeev Milkha Singh tied for the second spot.

Earlier Bhullar had won this in 2013. He got his seventh Asian Tour victory and a second title this season with a 16-under-par, 272 total at the Pondok Indah Golf course. The game was affected due to bad weather; so the ace golfer had to return on Monday morning to play the remaining three holes.

Thailand’s Danthai Boonma (67), Panuphol Pittayarat (68) and Tour rookie Johannes Veerman (69) of the United States took a share of second alongside Singh on 275s.

With this win, Bhullar becomes the 5th player to have won this contest twice. This is Jeev’s best performance since 2012, after a bogey on the 17th hole to finish on 72.

Speaking about the win, Bhullar said, “It is never easy in a Monday finish especially when you only have a two-shot lead. I slept at 7pm last night and woke up at 2am because there was so much adrenaline rush. I just could not divert my mind anywhere else apart from the last few holes. At the end of the day, I’m proud of myself and I’m glad I pulled it off.”

He also added, “I was not focussed on sleeping. I just could not divert my mind anywhere else apart from the last few holes. At the end of the day, I’m proud of myself and I’m glad I pulled it off.”

The 44-year-old Jeev, who has won 14 titles worldwide, admitted that it was difficult to chase the young Bhullar. He added, “I played well but Gaganjeet started really well yesterday. I tried to push him but I  finished second and I’ll take the result as it is my best finish of the year.”
