It is second Asian Tour title of the season for Kapur, who fired five birdies against one bogey to stay three strokes clear off a pack of fellow Indians, including Ajeetesh Sandhu (65), Sudhir Sharma (69) and Chirag Kumar (64).

Kapur had won the Yeangder Heritage in April and finished second at the Thailand Open this season. He had won his first Asian tour title in 2005 at the Volvo Masters of Asia.

At 14-under 274, as many as seven golfers finished at the tied second spot, meaning the top 10 was dominated by Indians with American Paul Peterson, who held a share of the lead after the third day, being the only exception as he also had a share of the tied second place.

Others to finish tied second are Karandeep Kochhar (66), SSP Chawrasia (69) and Om Prakash Chouhan (69).
“I am lost for words. You dream about winning but I never got so far in my career so I never prepared a speech in my life,” said Kapur.
