Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri has finished joint second behind Thailand's Thaworn Wiratchant in the 500,000 US Dollar King's Cup tournament. At Khon Kaen in Thailand, Lahiri, who was one shot ahead of Wiratchant going into the final round today, carded a two-under 70 for a four-day total of 270. Lahiri settled for a share of second place with Australia's Andrew Dodt and missed out on a third Asian Tour title of the season. A win today would have meant more world ranking points for 27-year old Lahiri and allowed him to close the gap on Order of Merit leader David Lipsky of the United States.
Wiratchant rewrote the record books by winning an unprecedented 18th Asian Tour title after he closed with a five-under-par 67 at the Singha Park Khon Kaen Golf Club. With his second victory on the region's premier Tour this season, the Thai veteran also completed his royal collection having won the Queen's Cup twice in 2012 and 2014 when it was staged as an Asian Tour event.
