Golf: Thaworn Wiratchant Wins Carlsberg Masters 2005 Tournament

Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand has become the first golfer to win four Asian Tour golf titles in one season, with a two-stroke victory at the Carlsberg Masters 2005 Vietnam tournament.

Thaworn carded a one-under-par 71 in Sunday's final round at the Chi Linh Star Golf and Country Club outside Hanoi. He finished the tournament with a seven-under total of 281, two shots better than England's Chris Rogers.

Filipino veteran Frankie Minoza settled for third place with a final-round 70 and total of 284. There was a three-way tie for fourth place with Yoshinobu Tsakada of Japan, Hong Kong's James Stewart and Danny Chia of Malaysia all finishing with totals of 286.

Thaworn takes home a first-place check of over 31-thousand dollars and solidifies his spot at the top of the Asian Tour Order of Merit with over 483-thousand dollars in winnings this season.
