Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh closed with a creditable round of three-under 68 to finish tied 36th in the Bridgestone Open at the Sodegaura Country Club here.
Jeev finished even-par for the week with rounds of 72, 73, 71 and 68 at 284. He birdied the second, fifth, 11th and 16th and was headed for a bogey-free round when he dropped a shot at the par-three 17th. Toru Taniguchi produced a dramatic win as he eagled the 18th hole to win by one shot over Hiroyuki Fujita, the leading player on Japan Tour this year.
Taniguchi was playing in the group ahead of Fujita, who needed a birdie on the 18th to force a play-off. But Fujita failed and Taniguchi won his 19th title on the Tour. He was winning the Bridgestone Open a third time having clinched it in 2004 and 2011.
Taniguchi started day one behind Fujita and Korean Dong Hwan Lee. Fujita was second while Ryuchi Oda, Lee and Kunihiro Kamii were tied for third. The next event is Mynavi ABC Championship.
Atwal finish 10th
After holding the lead at the halfway stage and then lying third, Indian golfer Arjun Atwal slipped on the final day for a very modest 71 to end tied 10th at the McGladrey Classic. It was his best finish for the year but did very little to move him closer to keep the card for 2013.
Atwal had rounds of 67, 63, 69 and 71 to be 10-under 270. In the final round, he started with a birdie but double bogeyed the second and then had another bogey on 10th hole. Over the next eight holes, he managed only one birdie on the 15th.
Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra shot 68 on the final day and came up to tied 15th, up from overnight 19th. He was nine-under 271 for the week. Atwal is still 166 on the Money list and only the top 125 keep the card for the next season in the tour.
