Khalin Joshi

NEW DELHI: Khalin Joshi finally got the monkey off his back. After three Top-10 finishes this season, Joshi, who has twice before finished runner-up at Asian Tour events, ended his wait for a maiden triumph with a win at the eighth edition of the Panasonic Open India.

On Sunday, roaring back from two early bogeys at the testing Delhi Golf Club, the 26-year-old Bengaluru pro bounced back with six birdies, including a birdie-birdie finish as he had four birdies in the last five holes.
