Shiv Kapur (35) ends long wait for second

Asian Tour title 
Miaoli, Chinese Taipei: Shiv Kapur of India ended an 11-year and four months' wait for a second Asian Tour title when he claimed a convincing victory at the inaugural Yeangder Heritage today.
The 35-year-old Kapur fired a sparkling, eight-under-par 64 highlighted by eight birdies – five of which came in his closing seven holes – to emerge victorious at the US$300,000 Asian Tour event.
With a winning total of 16-under-par 272, Kapur defeated Malaysian rising star Gavin Green (67) and overnight leader Yikeun Chang of South Korea (68) by two shots at the National Golf Country Club.
Rattanon Wannasrichan of Thailand carded a 67 to end his campaign in fourth place while Poom Saksansin (68) and Miguel Tabuena (68) of the Philippines finished a further shot back in fifth place.
Kapur, who won the 2002 Asian Games individual gold medal in South Korea, started the final round two shots back of the lead but a hot homeward stretch earned him a well-deserved victory.
