Chikka overcomes Pritam to retain title

42

Bangalore: S. Chikkarangappa unleashed the fighting spirit within him in grand style for the second day in succession to extend his reign as the all-India amateur golf champion here on February 6.

Just when everyone thought dark house Pritam Haridas would cut short his stay at the top after racing to a six-hole lead with just 12 played, a tenacious Chikkarangappa clawed his back in astonishing fashion to script a memorable 3&2 win in a grueling 36-hole final at the Karnataka Golf Association.
