Beijing, May 11 (UNI) Indian rookie Rahil Gangjee bounced back in the final round to score a bogey free four-under 68 on the final day of the Pine Valley Beijing Open here and finish tied 21st.

His card of 68 helped him end his campaign with a total of two-under 286.

The other Indian in fray, Digvijay Singh, however, dropped four shots on last two holes, including a triple on 18th to slip from top-20 to 51st.

Meanwhile, Japanese star Hiroyuki Fujita battled through a gruelling day to lift the title with his second straight even-par 72 in the final round.

The modest card was enough to ensure a three-stroke triumph for him in the USD one million event, which was sanctioned for the first time by the Japan Golf Tour alongside the Asian Tour and China Golf Association.

With a winning total of 12-under 276, the 39-year-old walked home with the top prize of USD 158,500.

Fujita's compatriot Shintaro Kai posted a 68 and claimed the lone second spot, while Fijian Dinesh Chand enjoyed his best finish on the Asian Tour this season when he ended in the third spot, firing his third consecutive 69 for a 280 total.
