Gaganjeet Bhullar has captured his maiden Asian Tour title at the Indonesia President Invitational in Jakarta.

Gaganjeet Bhullar has captured his maiden Asian Tour title with a two-stroke victory at the Indonesia President Invitational in Jakarta.
The 21-year-old Indian closed with a blemish free five-under-par 67 at Damai Indah Golf – Bumi Serpong Damai course today (Sunday) to finish with a 22-under-par 266 winning total.
The victory means Bhullar takes away the US$63,000 prize money and makes up for his failure to win the tournament two years ago.
Australian Adam Blyth finished second following a 68, while Thailand’s Thammanoon Srirot was third after a 66. South Korea’s Ted Oh was a further stroke back in fourth place.
Bhullar narrowly missed out on victory at the tournament in 2007 when he was pipped by Filipino Juvic Pagunsan’s birdie-eagle finish.
“I’ve got no words to describe how happy I am,” said Bhullar. “I’ve been waiting for this for the past two years and I played really well today and I had a very good finish with a good score.”
Bhullar, who had started the day as overnight leader, made a fine start with four birdies in his first six holes before adding a fifth on the par five 13th.
“Definitely after this victory, many things are going to change in my life. I’m looking forward to it,” he added.
