BANGKOK, Thailand -Asian Tour rookie Shev Kapur shot a 5-under-par 67 Sunday to beat defending champion Jyoti Randhawa by two strokes at the season-ending Volvo Masters of Asia.

Kapur had six birdies and earned his first Asian Tour title with a tournament record 20-under 268 total. Randhawa, who shared the lead entering the final round, shot a 69.

Macus Both of Australia, who shared the lead with the Indian pair heading into the final round, had a 71.

Kapur’s memorable rookie season included five top-10 finishes and last month’s playoff loss at the Double A International Open in Thailand.

“Right now I’m a dream world,” he said. “I thought I had the game to win. I never thought I would win the most important one, our Tour championship.”

Kapur’s victory earned him an invitation to the PGA Tour’s Sony Open next month and the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
