Norris pips Tabuena

TAIPEI: Shaun Norris overcame swirling winds with a four-under 68 to win the weather-shortened Yeangder Tournament Players Championship by two shots on Sunday, pipping overnight leader Miguel Tabuena. The 33-year-old Asian Tour rookie from South Africa shot five birdies in his opening seven holes and finished with a winning total of 12-under 204, after Friday’s second round was washed out by rain. Norris overcame a three-shot deficit to beat Tabuena, who was again frustrated after he lost a play-off at the event in Taipei last year. South Korea’s Kim Gi-Whan, Taiwan’s Hsu Hao-sheng of Chinese Taipei, Keith Horne of South Africa and Thai duo Panuphol Pittayarat and Natipong Srithong tied for third place.
