Ahmedabad-based Udayan Mane today won the fourth edition of the Golconda Masters Golf Championship held at the Hyderabad Golf Club.

Udayan (27) emerged triumphant in a four-way playoff at the fourth edition of the Golconda Masters, being organised by the Hyderabad Golf Association (HGA), Telangana Tourism and the Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI), a release from PGTI said here.

Mane outclassed Delhi's Shamim Khan, Chandigarh's Abhijit Singh Chadha and Sri Lankan N Thangaraja in the playoff after the quartet had ended the regulation 72 holes with identical totals of 14-under-270, it said.

Mane, who went home richer by Rs 4.5 lakh, has now climbed from 39th place to third position in the 2018 PGTI Order of Merit, the release said.

Udayan said: "At the start of the round I said three words to myself focus, patience and determination. I did have some frustrating moments today but I handled them well."

Joint runners-up Shamim Khan, Abhijit Singh Chadha and N Thangaraja were all in with a chance. However, during the playoff Shamim Khan and Abhijit Singh Chadha missed their birdie putts from a range of 15 to 17 feet while Thangaraja hit it over the green and missed the chip for birdie, the release added.
