Mohammad Siddikur of Bangladesh survived a bout of nerves Sunday before clinching his second Asian Tour title by one stroke at the Indian Open.

PGA TOUR WIN LEADERS

Collecting trophies is a habit of Tiger Woods.

Siddikur, who led on all four days and took a four-stroke lead going into the final day, bogeyed four out of six holes starting at the sixth and continued a forgettable last round in which he returned a three-over 75 to finish with a 14-under 274.

Siddikur also triple-bogeyed the par-four 15th and added another bogey on the 16th before making it through with a birdie and a par hole as the Indian pair of Anirban Lahiri and Shiv Chowrasia came within one stroke of forcing a playoff.

Baek Seuk-Hyun of South Korea, Angelo Que of the Philippines and Indians Chiragh Kumar and Rashid Khan finished joint-fourth at 276.
