"My game was in great shape this week. I shot four under-par scores and was very consistent. I was particularly solid today. I recovered from some very tough situations such as the third, 15th and 16th. I made my best par-save of the tournament on the third and did well to negotiate the tricky 15th hole where quite a few other players had struggled. The sixth hole is the longest par-3 on the course and the windy conditions made it the toughest hole of the day. I managed to salvage a birdie on the sixth," said Vinod, who has won a team event and a title on the PGTI Feeder Tour besides his two wins on the PGTI.
He added, "I thank fellow professional Gurbaaz Mann for helping me with my club fitting. I was hitting the ball to the left on day one but with Gurbaaz's club fitting my hitting improved. SSP Chowrasia's sound advice has also contributed towards my success. He told me to always aim for pars and the birdies will happen in the process."
Arshdeep Tiwana (72-72-65-71) with four birdies against three bogeys in the final round finished tied second along with Harendra Gupta (68-70-70-72) whose round four featured two birdies and two bogeys. Australia's Kunal Bhasin was fourth with a seven-under-281 total. Shamim Khan, who finished tied eighth at three-under-285, continues to lead the Rolex Rankings.
