India's Chowrasia wins Avantha Masters

Shiv Shankar Prasad Chowrasia of India got his second professional win at the Avantha Masters on Sunday, shooting a 5-under 67 for a one stroke victory over Robert Coles of England.

Chowrasia set the clubhouse target of 15-under 273 at the joint Euro-Asian tour event and then had to wait an hour while Coles finished his round at the DLF Golf and Country Club.

The Englishman had several chances to win over the closing holes but couldn't sink the putts to pull it off. U.S. Open runner-up Gregory Havret of France claimed third another shot back after a 68.

First-round leader Robert-Jan Derksen of the Netherlands was fourth after shooting a 69 to finish at 12 under. Overnight leader Pablo Larrazabal of Spain shot 72 and ended in a tie for fifth with India's Sujjan Singh at 11 under.
