Eagles lift Tabuena to T9 finish


UNITED KINGDOM — Filipino Miguel Tabuena turned in a 68 on Sunday to share ninth place at the end of the Asian Tour International Series England in New Castle.

Tabuena spiced up his round with two eagles and six birdies pulled down only by five bogeys and one double bogey along the way.

He finished tied with Taiwanese Taicho Kho at five-under 279.

Almost alternating birdies and bogeys, Tabuena appeared to have taken the corner with an eagle on the par 5 7th, the same hole he eagled on the third round.

He had six eagles throughout the week.

The current Asian Tour Order of Merit No. 2 would also eagle the par 4 No. 10, but two holes later double bogeyed No. 12.

The AT Order of Merit leader, American Andy Ogletree stamped his class following a stunning seven-stroke victory — with a runaway 16-under tournament total in the $2-million tournament.

The American shot a final-round seven-under-par 64 — the joint lowest round of the week — to finish ahead of second-placed Ian Poulter from England, who closed with the same score.

Indian Anirban Lahiri carded a 68, to take sole possession of third, one back from Poulter.

This is Ogletree’s third convincing International Series victory — he triumphed in Qatar by three this year, and by four in Egypt last season — and it consolidated his lead on both the Asian Tour and International Series Order of Merits.

“I don’t think I could hit it much better than I did this week,” said the 25-year-old, who banked US$360,000.

“The greens were super bumpy so it’s hard to tell exactly how my putting was, but I was pleased with how I played and my speed control coming down the stretch today was awesome,” Ogletree said.
