Ace Bangladesh golfer Siddikur Rahman finished in joint 65th place in the $1,067,000 Kolon 62nd Korea Open Golf Championship with a five-over-par 76 in the fourth and final round in Seoul on Sunday. The two-time Asian tour winner, Siddik, who ended the third round in joint 64th place, carded one birdie against four bogies and one double-bogey on the final round to finish the competition with a total of 13-over-par 297 at the Woo Jeong Hills Country Club. Meanwhile, Rising star Jazz Janewattananond of Thailand held his nerves to claim his fourth Asian Tour title and a second one this season. Jazz, who extended his overnight two-shot lead to five after sinking three birdies in his opening seven holes, overcame a wild triple-bogey on the par-four 11th hole and a bogey on 14th to become the first foreign winner of the prestigious event since American Rickie Fowler in 2011. The 23-year-old Jazz signed for a closing one-over-par 72 to win by one shot over Korea’s Innchoon Hwang with a six-under-par 278 total.
