Randhawa misses top-5 finish, ends tied 19th at WGC
Shanghai: A top five finish that seemed so imminent slipped through the fingers of a nervy Jyoti Randhawa, who signed off tied 19th with an even-par final round in the prestigious WGC-HSBC Champions golf tournament.
Nerves got the better of Randhawa, who blew off a good start to slip down the leaderboard, even though his exploit was good enough to finish ahead of the likes of Sergio Garcia (281) and Padraig Harrington (282) with a total of eight-under 280.
Among other Indians, Jeev Milkha Singh was the next best-placed at tied 33rd after turning in a two-under 70 for the second consecutive day.
Jeev picked up four birdies against a couple of bogeys to finish with a total of three-under 285.
But the nightmare continued for Gaganjeet Bhullar and C Muniyappa, both of whom returned over-par cards yet again to sign off tied 74th with totals of 12-over 300.
While Bhullar carded a 74, Muniyappa was even worse with a 79 on the final day.
Overnight tied sixth, it was a perfect start to Randhawa`s day as he birdied the first hole.
But his form dipped after that and he dropped a stroke on the fourth hole before stumbling to a double-bogey on the ninth to be two-over at the turn.
