New Delhi,Sports, Fri, 01 Mar 2013 IANS

New Delhi, Mar 1 (IANS) Sri Lankan Vijitha Bandara won the 8th NCR Cup golf at the Delhi Golf Club here Saturday.

It was the second consecutive time the trophy was won by a Sri Lankan. N.Thangaraja, who has turned professional now, won the trophy last year.

Bandara shot four-over 76 for the total of 293 in windy conditions to lift the trophy.

India's Prince Kajotia who has joined Indian Navy recently, returned with the career best finish after shooting three-over 295 as a runner up.

India born Thai Samarth Dwivedi ended the day with 3rd position as he scored 300 while coming from behind another Indian Lakhan Singh WAS tied for fourth place along with Amit Kumar at 303.

Bandara started the day with a birdie on 1st and was one-over after front nine. After taking a lot of pressure on himself, 24-year-old Bandara dropped two shots and made a double bogey on 10th.

No.1 on Sri Lanka amateur circuit, Bandara got confused in choosing the clubs on 11th hole as the wind speed high and he used 3-wood for the tee shot where in he normally uses his 52 wedge. His best shot of the tournament came on the finishing hole where he rescued the ball from a difficult condition as he landed his tee shot in right bushes but managed a par with advice from his caddy.

Another highlight of the day was a hole-in-one on 7th hole by Devendra Singh who finished 22nd.
