Joshi dropped a shot on <g data-gr-id="16">fourth</g> and then three in a row from seventh to ninth. On the back nine, he totally reversed the form with an eagle 2 on par-4 10th and three more birdies.
Himmat had a double and a triple bogey besides two other bogeys. But he made up with four birdies for his 74 and Chiragh also suffered five bogeys and a double against four birdies in his 75. At the top, Matthew Giles of Australia sank a clutch birdie putt on the last hole to win the Bali National Golf Championship title by one-shot.
