Ajeetesh Sandhu wins Yeangder TPC
Ajeetesh Sandhu wins his maiden Asian Tour Title at the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship in Taipei. Sandhu posted a round of two-under-par 70 to claim a dream victory, in turn defeating his previous round co-leaders Veerman and Lu by one and two shots respectively. This victory has a lot of meaning to Sandhu as it comes after he missed out on a Tour Card at Qualifying School, earlier this year.
Veerman almost forced a playoff with Sandhu when his ball hit the flag on the 18th for an eagle, but missed to drop in, and settled for a second spot, his best finish on the Asian Tour.
Lu Wei-Chih’s miss
Lu who was looking for a second win at the Yeangder and after his win at the Taiwan Masters in 2016, fell short of two-shots with his finish of 72 including four birdies and the same number of bogeys. Lu earlier had a brain surgery in 2012 and had lost all his will to play golf anymore, but when motivated by friends and family he came back to professional golfing and won at Taiwan Masters in 2016, and Sandhu was all praise for the man after his win.
