Aguilar wins Indonesia Open
February 18th, 2008

CHILE’S Felipe Aguilar fired a two-under par 68 final round to win the $US1.2 million ($1.33 million) Indonesia Open by one stroke.

Play was heading into a sudden-death play-off but a costly bogey on the closing 18th by India’s Jeev Milkha Singh left the 32-year-old Chilean victorious with an 18-under-par 262 total.

Rising Thai star Prom Meesawat returned a 67 to share third place with South Africa’s James Kamte while New Zealand’s Mark Brown and Joost Luiten of the Netherlands were tied for fifth on 264.

Aguilar, who held a two-shot lead going into the final round at the Cengkareng Golf Club got off to a nervous start when he bogeyed his second hole but shifted into top gear to reel off three consecutive birdies from the ninth.

“I was a little bit more aggressive on the putts coming in because I had to try and chase it,” said Aguilar after making his first birdie at the 524-yard, par five ninth.

“After Jeev made bogey on the 16th, I realised that I was still in the game. I knew I had to make a three on the 18th for a play-off. I was so sure that I was going to birdie,” he said.

“I didn’t expect him to bogey but you never know how golf is. It’s not over till it’s over,” said a jubilant Aguilar, who took home the $US200,000 ($A222,000) winner’s cheque at the event co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and European Tour.
