Sotogrande (Spain): SSP Chowrasia was the lone Indian to avoid an over-par with an even-par 71 in the
final round to sign off a creditable ninth in the Andalucia
Valderrama Masters golf tournament here.

Chowrasia ended his campaign with a total of three-over
287.

Among the other Indians in fray, Jeev Milkha Singh (76)
was the next best-placed at tied 14th with a total of
five-over 289.

Shiv Kapur finished in the bottom half of the leaderboard
at tied 44th after a horrendous six-over 77 left his overall
score at 12-over 296 at the Club de Golf Valderrama.

Chowrasia pulled off a couple of birdies and an eagle
against four bogeys on the final day but Jeev failed to gain a
single stroke and stumbled to five bogeys.

Kapur`s disappointing card included five bogeys and a
double bogey against just one birdie.

Ireland`s Graeme McDowell (74) grabbed the title by two
strokes with a total of three-under 281.
