ANGELO QUE had a steady start but hit a bump near the end, settling for a final-round 70 and joint fourth place in the Myanmar Open on Sunday.
Chawalit Plaphol of Thailand recovered from his own slip up, making up for a bogey on No. 15 with birdies on the final two holes to claim the title at 18-under 270 at the Royal Mingalardon Golf and Country Club in Yangon.
Mithun Perera, who briefly held the top spot after Plaphol’s miscue, had a closing 65 for second place at 17-under, while Koradech Aphibarnrat took third spot with a fourth-round 70 and a 272 aggregate.
The 34-year-old Que, a three-time winner on the Asian Tour, started the day in third place and moved tantalizingly close to the top of the leaderboard until a bogey on No. 15.
That was his first bogey in 35 holes, pulling him from second spot to joint fourth at 15-under 273.
The Filipino shotmaker had earlier rounds of 69, 68 and a bogey-free third-round 66.
Que looked set for another blemish-free day with birdies on Nos. 2 and 5, both par-5s, to reach the turn at two-under.
A birdie on No. 14 moved him to three under for the day and solo second spot but he quickly faded and slipped to fourth with bogey on the par-3 No. 15.
He shared fourth place with Australia's Darren Beck, who had a closing 69.
Antonio Lascuna, the top money earner on the Philippine Golf Tour last year, had a closing 67 and wound up tied for 13th at 276.
Two-time Philippine Open champion Frankie Miñoza had a 70 for a 279 total and joint 24th place, while Mars Pucay closed with a 71 for a share of 58th at 283.
Teen star Miguel Tabuena fired a final-round 72 and wound up in joint 58th at 5-under 283.
