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.
