KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Shubhankar Sharma of India won his second European Tour title after carding 10 birdies in a joint tournament-low 62 in the final round of the Maybank Championship on Sunday.

Spain's Jorge Campillo was two shots adrift in second place after a closing 68 gave him a 19-under aggregate of 269, one ahead of Ryan Fox (66) and Pablo Larrazabal (66).

Sharma, 21, who also won the Joburg Open in December, described 62 as his "lucky" number after finishing with a 21-under total of 267 to pocket the first prize of $500,000.

"The first 62 I shot was in Manila two years back on the Asian Tour," he said. "Then I shot 10-under again in Joburg to win, so that number is lucky for me.

"I played really well, especially the way I started with five birdies on the front nine. It's always tough to make more birdies when you're trailing the leaders but I was calm."

Former world No. 1 Lee Westwood, who shot a 62 on Friday, ended in a tie for 11th place following a final-round 70.
