Two-time Asian Tour winner golfer Rahil Gangjee carded a stunning 7-under 63 for an overall score of 11-under 269 to win the Louis Philippe Cup by three strokes here yesterday.

His 63 on the day was also a course record which was created by Udayan Mane and Argentine Miguel Carballo on the first day. Beginning the final day in tied fifth and four shots behind overnight leaders Mane and Rashid Khan, Rahil dished out a superlative performance to emerge winner. This was Rahil's second title of the year after winning the Panasonic Open Golf Championship in Ibaraki, Japan. This was his third win on the Professional Golf Tour of India.

"The first day of the tournament was rusty for me and I had said I needed some practice. The second round was exactly that practice which I was longing for. The third round gave me the much-needed boost. Today when I started I honestly did not have much of plan in mind," said Rahil.

"Over the last year I have played the final rounds one shot at a time and I don't play for a particular number and today wasn't any different. I am thankful to the weather gods that except for a minor sprinkle there wasn't much of a rain scare and that helped me stay in rhythm."
