Om Prakash Chouhan win's Glade One Masters 2021

Last Week in the Gujarat Open, Om Prakash Chouhan lost his giant lead in first nine holes of final round and PGTI had two back-to-back opening events in Gujarat and the first event was 2021 Gujarat Open Golf Championship and second was Glade One Masters 2021 so, two events in succession gave Chouhan a chance for redemption.
 
Glade One Masters 2021 had a unique format as first two rounds were of nine holes where Chouhan scored 35 and 33 to climb from T9 to T3 and the final two rounds were of 18 holes for a total of 54 holes of play. Chouhan scored 64 in round three’s full 18 holes to tie for lead with Manu Gandas at -12.
 
Gurugram’s Manu Gandas scored birdie of the first hole to become the sole leader at -13 following Chouhan’s even par on hole 1 but things changed drastically when Chouhan became the new leader by scoring birdie on the second hole to move up -13 and lead by two not one because Gandas got a double bogey on the same hole to move down -11 and in next seven holes Gandas scored one birdie and bogey to finish first nine at 37 for -11 while, Chouhan had a fantastic run as he added two more birdies and one eagle to end first nine at 31 to move up -17 and nine holes later, Chouhan was leading the event by a margin of 6 strokes.
 
Om Prakash Chouhan scored nine straight even pars in back nine to finish round four at -5 for -17 tournament score and Manu Gandas was not able to score six under par in back nine as he scored two under 34 in back nine to finish the event at -13 and was able to reduce the gap only by two strokes as Chouhan won the Glade One Masters 2021 by four strokes margin.
 
Chouhan on his win –
“I’m relieved to have won today especially after the disappointment of last week. I had told myself at the start of this event that I will not repeat the mistakes of last week. The previous week was one of the rare occasions when I played in the leader group during the final round and did not win.
 
“I have now won six times while playing in the leader group in round four. When I’m in a good position I generally don’t let the opportunity slip away. But that didn’t happen last week so that was a big lesson for me.
 
And Chouhan also commented on his final round first nine charge –
“I attacked well at the start today and then tried to play some conservative golf on the back-nine and tried to avoid getting overconfident despite the big lead at the turn. I executed my pitching wedge shot from the bunker to perfection for the second day running. The yardage from there was somehow perfect for my shot as it was about 115 yards out and almost in the same spot as round three.”
 
The 2021 Glade One Masters was Om Prakash Chouhan’s sixth career win.
