Amanjyot's final tally stood at 1-over 281.

Saurabh Bahuguna was the only player to challenge the leader but fell short by four strokes even as he finished with a birdie.

With a five shot lead, Amanjyot adopted a defensive approach and made pars on the first five holes.

Saurabh meanwhile made a bogey in the third and a birdie on the fourth as the lead remained constant. Amanjyot made two consecutive bogeys as the lead reduced to three.

Saurabh did manage to make a birdie on the 18th but it came a little too late.

With a final round of two over 72, the Delhi amateur finished at 285 for the runner-up position.
