New Delhi:

India's Mukesh Kumar on Sunday created history of sorts by becoming the oldest golfer to win an Asian Tour title. Kumar achieved this landmark by lifting the weather-hit Panasonic Open after it was curtailed to 54 holes.

The 51-year-old Mukesh, who has already won a staggering 123 PGTI titles, turned in a two-under 70 in the final round to total 10-under 206 to claim the trophy his first on the Asian Tour.

In fact, India dominated the top half of the leaderborad with Jyoti Randhawa and Rashid Khan sharing the second position, a stroke adrift of Mukesh.

Both Randhawa and Rashid carded four-under 68 in the final round. Honey Baisoya took the sole fifth spot with a five-under 67 in the final round which left him with a total of seven-under 209.
