Thailand's Thaworn Wiratchant came from three shots behind to fire an eight-under-par 64 yesterday to win the Taiwan Open, his second Asian Tour title of the season.
The score, which tied the Chang Gung Golf Club course record, gave Thaworn a four-day total of 18-under-par 270, putting him one stroke ahead of fellow Thai Chapchai Nirat.
"I'm really happy," Thaworn said. "Everything worked in my favor in the final round."
Chapchai shot a five-under 67 Sunday for a four-day total of 271.
Overnight leader Scott Strange (70) ended three strokes off the pace and settled for a share of third place with fellow Australian Terry Pilkadaris (68) and Taiwan's Lu Wei-lan (67).
Strange, chasing his second title of the year after his success at the Myanmar Open, was in the hunt on the back nine but bogeyed at the par-five 12th and 14th holes.
With solid driving, Thaworn birdied the third, fourth, seventh and eighth holes and tied for the lead after a chip-in birdie on 10th. He then surged ahead with birdies on the 11th, 12th and 14th holes.
"I thought that three shots back were a bit too much for me but when I started to putt well and caught the leaders, I knew I had a good chance to win," he said.
Thaworn's win puts him back atop the Asian Tour Order of Merit, a week after he was surpassed by fellow Thai Thongchai Jaidee, who did not play in Taipei.
