Udayan Mane of Bengaluru coasted to a comfortable four-shot win at the bti Open 2017 yesterday. Mane returned an assured two-under-70 in the final round of the BDT 48 lakh event to end up with a tournament total of 12-under-276.
Patna’s Aman Raj (69), Chandigarh’s Harendra Gupta (70) and Bengaluru’s Khalin Joshi (71) shared second place at eight-under-280 at the event played at Dhaka’s magnificent Kurmitola Golf Club (KGC), according to a press release of BTI.
Udayan Mane (70-67-69-70), the leader for the last two rounds, continued his domination for the third straight day with a steady round of 70 to become the first Indian to win the bti Open trophy as the inaugural edition in 2016 was won by Bangladesh’s Md Siddikur Rahman.
 The 26-year-old Mane took home the winner’s cheque worth BDT. 7.2 lakh and thus took a flight from 26th place to third position in the 2017 PGTI Order of Merit.
Mane, ahead by two at the start of the final round, had an early break when he birdied the opening hole. The golfer, who plays at Eagleton – The Golf Resort near Bengaluru, continued his grip over the match with pars on the next 11 holes even as his nearest rivals struggled to catch up with him.
Mane said, “This win is a special one as it’s a testament to all the hard work I’ve put in recently. Towards the end of last season I began changing my approach to the game and the way I practiced. It was a systematic approach to try to get better.  
Aman Raj climbed from overnight tied fifth to tied second after a final round of 69 that saw him drain a number of long putts.
 Harendra Gupta gained two places from his overnight fourth while Khalin Joshi moved up one spot from third as both players joined Aman Raj as joint runners-up. Joshi also made significant gains in the Order of Merit climbing from fourth to second place.
Chandigarh’s Ajeetesh Sandhu carded the day’s joint best score of 67 to finish tied fifth at seven-under-281 along with Delhi’s Shamim Khan (70). Sandhu thus held on to his lead in the Order of Merit.
Md Nazim (71) finished as the best placed Bangladeshi golfer in tied ninth at four-under-284. Bangladesh’s Mohammad Rasel, the only amateur to make the cut, won the trophy for the best performance by an amateur. He closed the week in tied 29th at three-over-291.
 Champion Udayan Mane received the trophy from Maj. Gen. Baquee, vice president, Kurmitola Golf Club. Also present in the event are Asif Abrahim, President, BPGA, Arshi Haider, chairman, bti Holdings Ltd, Uttam Singh Mundy, CEO, PGTI, and Brig Gen Quamrul, Secretary General, BPGA.
