Shiv Kapur carded a final round of two-over 74, the same as in the third round, to finish tied 60th at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles on Sunday.

Kapur's first two rounds of 72 each were followed by rounds of 74 in the weekend. Kapur's Achilles heel was once again the 15th hole, where he double bogeyed for the third time in four days. Overall he had three birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey.

Kapur had two successive rounds of 72 each to be tied at even par after 36 holes. He was tied 50th. The only other Indian in the field, SSP Chowrasia missed the cut by one after rounds of 74 and 71.

Lawrie, 43, shot a final round 68 for his second Tour victory this year and the eighth of his career. Australia's Brett Rumford secured his best finish in two years shooting a 68 for second place at 12-under par. Holland's Maarten Lafeber (69), France's Romain Wattel (72) and Sweden's Fredrik Anderssen-Hed (65) shared third place on 11-under par.
