Sizzling Randhawa finishes tied 7th in Qatar Masters

other Updated: Jan 27, 2008 18:53 IST

Jyoti Randhawa rode on his birdie binge en route to a sensational final round of six-under 66 to finish tied seventh in the Qatar Masters on Sunday.

The European Tour regular blasted half a dozen birdie in his blemish-free round to aggregate 10-under 278 to notch up a top 10 finish.

Among his compatriots, Shiv Kapur signed off with three-under 69 to total four-under 284 and finish tied 47th.

Jeev Milkha Singh, third Indian in the fray, turned in an impressive card of four-under 68 to take his 72-hole tally to two-under n286 and finish tied 56th.

Englishman Adam Scott won the tournament turning in a flawless 11-under 61 studded with 11 birdies -- including five on the trot to total 20-under, beating his nearest rival Swede Henrik Stenson (65) by three strokes.

Earlier, armed with a red hot putter, Randhawa played near-perfect golf as he came up with a bogey-free round that catapulted him from his overnight tied 32nd position.

It was a highly impressive show by the lanky golfer who found the greens quite often and needed just 24 putts for his final round.

Shiv too looked in good form as he reeled off five birdies before a bogey in each nine halted his progress.

Jeev, meanwhile, turned in his best round of the week and the bogey on the sixth hole was the lone blot in an otherwise impressive card that included five birdies.
