Jyoti Randhawa finishes as joint runner-up at CJ Invitational

India’s Jyoti Randhawa finished joint runner-up at the CJ Invitational Hosted by KJ Choi, an Asian Tour event, in Korea on Sunday. Randhawa shot scores of 67, 74, 73 and 67 to end up with a total of seven-under-281. Jyoti finished five strokes behind the eventual winner Kang Sung-Hoon of Korea. Kim Tae-Hoon, another Korean golfer, was in tied second place along with Randhawa.

Jyoti Randhawa, the 2002 Asian Tour Order of Merit winner, earned his best result since his last victory on the Asian Tour in 2009 after hitting six birdies against one bogey in his final round of 67.

“Started with a bang and ended with a bang but I have no idea what happened in between! I had a good ball striking day. I felt my best out there and I’ll take the positives out of this round until the end of the year,” said Randhawa, an eight-time Asian Tour winner. 

Among the other Indians in the field, Anirban Lahiri claimed tied 17th position at one-under-287 while Rahil Gangjee was placed tied 29th at two-over-290.

Digvijay Singh was in tied 65th place at 11-over-299.
