India golfer Gaganjeet Bhullar has been in good form, as he won his second title of the season on Monday. Bhullar clinched the Indonesia Open with a 16-under-par 272 total at the Pondok Indah Golf Course. This is also the golfer's seventh Asian tour victory. 

It was a close contest between the two Indian golfers, Bhullar and Jeev Milkha Singh, who had to settle for a joint-second place finish, with the former playing some quality golf to pip him for the title. Jeev finished tied on second with 13-under-par 275. 

The Indonesia Open was originally scheduled to finish on Sunday, but thunderstorm in the afternoon led to the game being suspended for the day, and be pushed to Monday. Bhullar started the day with a two shot lead, but looked composed to win the Indonesia Open.

Bhullar admitted that it was not easy to sleep last night, thinking about what would happen on Monday.

"It is never easy in a Monday finish especially when you only have a two-shot lead. I slept at 7pm last night and woke up at 2am because there was so much adrenaline rush. I just couldn't focus on anything. I was not focussed on sleeping. I just could not divert my mind anywhere else apart from the last few holes. At the end of the day, I'm proud of myself and I'm glad I pulled it off," Press Trust of India quoted Bhullar as saying. 

"I was full of confidence from tee number one. I told myself that I will play aggressive golf and gave myself a lot of birdie chances. I putted really well and made single putts in the first seven holes," he added.

Other strong India golfers like Jyoti Randhawa finished joint 14th while Shubhankar Sharma (73) and Chikkrangappa were tied at the 27th place.
