New Delhi: India's Mukesh Kumar on Sunday became the oldest golfer to win an Asian Tour title when he lifted the weather-hit Panasonic Open here after it was curtailed to 54 holes.

The 51-year-old Mukesh, who has 123 PGTI titles under his belt, turned in a two-under 70 in the final round to total 10-under 206 to claim the trophy -- his first on the Asian Tour.

In fact, India dominated the top half of the leaderboard with Jyoti Randhawa and Rashid Khan sharing the second position, a stroke adrift of Mukesh.

Both Randhawa and Rashid carded four-under 68 in the final round.

Honey Baisoya took the sole fifth spot with a five-under 67 in the final round which left him with a total of seven-under 209.
