The 43-year-old Sri Lankan, Anura Rohana set the Poona Club Golf Course on fire with his six-under-65 on the final day at the Pune Open 2017. Anura Rohana (71-68-70-65), lying tied seventh and three off the lead, had a vision at the start of the final round that he would shoot a 65. As it turned out, his vision came true earning him his fourth title on the PGTI. It was a brilliant display of his all-round skills as he accumulated four birdies on the front-nine including two from 10 to 15 feet. Anura thus bagged the winning check worth Indian Rs. 4,50,000 and moved up from eighth to fourth in the PGTI Order of Merit.

When asked about his win Anura said “This morning, I somehow thought of the number 65 as the combination for locking my suitcase. At that moment, I told myself that this might just be the number I end up shooting today. That’s exactly what happened. “I started believing I could win, when after a duff tee shot on the 11th, I landed my approach within three feet and made birdie there. That was the turning point for me. Then of course the eagle on the 15th set up the finish for me.”
