The Malaysian, who was trailing behind overnight leader Heraty by one heading into the last day, closed the final round with a two-over par 74 to be in joint second with Italy’s Aron Zemmer at six-under par 210.

Heraty, who shot a superb eight-under par 64 on the second day, ended his campaign with a solid even-par 72 to run away with the title at nine-under par 207.
