Terengganu (Malaysia), Aug 17 : Thai golfer Pavit Tangkamolprasert mounted a late charge to win his second Asian Development Tour (ADT) title at the PGM Terengganu Championship here Sunday.
The 25-year-old Pavit sank six birdies in his last 12 holes for a five-under-par 66 and a 13-under-par 271 total to defeat overnight leader Pijit Petchkasem, also of Thailand, by one shot at the RM200,000 (about USD 60,000) ADT event.
It was a case of so close but yet so far again for Pijit, who settled for second after returning with a 71 while Rattanon Wannasrichan completed a top-three finish for Thailand at the Resorts World Kijal.
Shaaban Hussin (71) was the best placed Malaysian in fourth after ending his campaign on 276.
