Gleeson sets tournament record to win Indian Open

David Gleeson shot a 4-under 68 in the final round to win the

Indian Open, his third career title on the Asian Tour, by three

strokes over local favorite Chiragh Kumar on Sunday.

The 27-year-old Taipei-based Australian was 4 under after five

holes and made 13 consecutive pars in the final round to finish

with a tournament record 20-under 268. His round included an eagle

on the par-4 third when he chipped in from 140 yards.

Kumar shot a final-round 70 for a career-best finish that also

secured an Asian Tour card for 2012.

Ross Bain of Scotland and Lu Wei-Chih of Taipei, winner of last

week’s Yeangder TPC, shot matching 67s to share third place on

272.
