    Md Zamal Hossain Mollah steals the show with a sensational 63 on final day; Zamal goes 15-under and error-free on last two days to clinch first title in India and break seven-year winless streak

    It turned out to be an unbelievable week for Bangladesh’s Md Zamal Hossain Mollah who stole the show on the final day of the inaugural Bengal Open Golf Championship 2019 Presented By West Bengal Tourism & Powered By Tollygunge Club.

    The 34-year-old Zamal, who had made a relatively slow start to the event with scores of 68 and 69 to languish at tied 39th at the halfway stage, came roaring back with remarkable bogey-free efforts of eight-under-62 and seven-under-63 over the next two days to clinch the title by one shot at 18-under-262.

    The victory was all the more sweet for Zamal (68-69-62-63), who gained 11 places on the last day, as it happened to be his first in India and also brought an end to his painful seven-year winless streak on the TATA Steel PGTI
