Plaphol wins by 1 in Myanmar

Chawalit Plaphol birdied his final two holes on Sunday to secure a 1-stroke victory over Mithun Perera at the Zaykabar Myanmar Open.

Tied with Perera entering the final hole, the overnight leader Plaphol dropped his approach on the par-5 18th within three feet and tapped in for birdie to lock up his fourth Asian Tour title.

Thailand's Plaphol carded a final-round, 3-under 69 and closed at 18-under 270.

Perera, who was attempting to become the first Sri Lankan to win on the Asian Tour, fired a 65 on Sunday.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat (70) finished alone in third at 16-under, while Hwang In- choon (67), Darren Beck (69) and Angelo Que (70) tied for fourth place at minus-15.
