Australia’s Andrew Dodt staged a dramatic comeback by signing off with a five-under-par 67 to win the inaugural True Thailand Classic presented by Black Mountain on Sunday.
Dodt’s winning total of 16-under-par 272 at the Black Mountain Golf Club left him speechless as he finally ended a five-year title drought.
But it was Dodt’s ability to stay patient that made all difference.
After a hat-trick of birdies from his opening first hole, the 29-year-old parred his next eight holes before picking up further gains on 12 and 15 which effectively sealed his win.
“Those three birdies really kept the momentum going and I hung on after that.
“The winds picked up on the back-nine and it got pretty tricky towards the end and I tried to play as sensibly as I could. I’m glad I did it,” said Dodt.
After five years, Dodt completed his remarkable return to the winner’s circle with a performance that left him searching for words.
“There are no thoughts at the moment. I’m speechless,” said the Australian, who started the day four shots back of Hend.
