Oscar Zetterwall finishes three clear at Sherwood for first ADT title
Sweden’s Oscar Zetterwall starts the day four strokes off and winds up winning by three.

OSCAR Zetterwall of Sweden fired a closing 68 to the Asian Development Tour’s Sherwood Classic by three on Saturday in Trece Martirez, Cavite.

Zetterwall finished at nine-under 279 to bag $10,500 (around P490,000), while Japan’s Toru Nakajima shot a 71 for solo second at 282 and received $6,900.

Zetterwall moved two shots clear with a clutch birdie on No. 12 and Toru Nakajima bogeyed No. 13 on a missed green mishap.

Overnight leader Kasidit Lepkurte bogeyed three of the first nine holes and wound up with a four-over 76, tied for third at 283 with Mathiam Keyser of South Africa, who closed with a 68, and Joh Catlin of the US, who shot a 70.

Dutchman Guido Van der Valk gunned down an eagle on the par-5 12th but settled for pars the rest of the way for a bogey-free 70 and solo sixth at 212.

Clyde Mondilla birdied the last three par-5s but holed out with a double-bogey for a 71 and joint seventh at 213 with Nick Sherwood of the US and Canada’s Lindsay Renolds, who both carded 70s.

Michael Bibat tied for 10th at 214 after a 70, joining a group that also had Marvin Dumandan, who shot a 71, American players Dino Giacomazi (73) and Paul Harris (67) and Samuel Chien (70).

Zetterwall hit another birdie on No. 15 as Nakajima’s last-ditch rally fizzled out with another bogey on the 17th after threatening last with back-to-back birdies from No. 14.

“It’s always war on the golf course and I was just lucky I made it,” said Zetterwal.

Jobim Carlos, the talented rookie pro who groped for form with earlier rounds of 78, 72 and 74, finally caught fire and sizzled with a mind-boggling 11 birdies for a 64.

Carlos wound up tied for 18th at 288 with Rufino Bayron, who made a 73, and James Ryan Lam, who shot a 75.
