Poor finish costs Jeev, Kapur dear

other Updated: Jan 25, 2010 01:01 IST

Finishing blues continued to haunt the Indian duo, Jeev Milkha Singh and Shiv Kapur, who again dropped shots towards the end in the fourth and final round of the Abu Dhabi Open Golf Championships.

Jeev, starting on 10th tee, was four-under after 12 holes, dropped two bogeys on fifth and seventh to finish at 70. He was tied 49th.

Kapur, also a 10th tee starter, had an even more disastrous finish as he dropped no less than four shots between third and the sixth holes and from five-under for 11, finishing at one-under par and ending the tournament at three-under at 56th place.

Meanwhile, Germany's Martin Kaymer birdied the final hole to edge out Ian Poulter by a shot and win his second title here in three years. Overnight leader Kaymer, the 2008 champion and last year's runner-up, topped the leaderboard at 21-under par as his bogey free final round 66 was enough to see off Poulter, who also hit 66 in a valiant display.
