Malcolm Kokocinski carded six-under-par in the final round to take his aggregate 14- under-par (total 270) to win the AB Bank Bangladesh Open.

The 26-year-old Swedish golf youngster awarded with a prize money of $54,000 in the $300,000 event.

New Zealand’s Ben Campbell and England’s Jack Harrison finished joint second at 11-under (273). Jack was the in the leading position after the third round, but the Englishman bogeyed in the last holes and that ensured Kokocinski’s first ever Asian Tour title. Jack Harrison had to share his second position with Ben Cambell.

The interesting fact is, Kokocinski is the third consecutive first-time winner produced by Bangladesh Open in last three years. The other two is Thailand’s Thitiphun Chuayprakong and Jazz Janewattananond in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Kokocinski felt that the recent experience in Dhaka helped him a lot.

“It was nice to be back at the Kurmitola Golf Club this week. This is my third time here this year. I came twice earlier for the ADT events and I played very well. That experience has definitely given me a lot of advantage and confidence,” he said after the win.

“This win means a lot to me. I don’t have a status on the Asian Tour before this week. So I am really pleased with how I played here”, Kokocinski said in comments published on the tournament’s official website.

“I have been playing well in the last couple of months. I knew my game was good so I just had to stick to my game plan and hit some good shots coming down the stretch.

“I stayed patient out there. I was playing well all week so I knew a good round will come sooner or later,” he added.

This Swedish had multiple sports personalities within himself, but he pursued his career as a pro golfer in 2011 and then he became a regular face in Asian Tours since 2013.

While everyone was busy with Kokocinski, local boy Zamal Hossain, who was in the led after the second round finished joint fourth with USA’s John Catlin at 9-under-par (275).

Another local Badal Hossain finished tied for the 14th position but the country’s premier golfer Siddikur Rahman was way out of the t top list. He finished tied for the 26th.

Zamal Hossain described his disappointment after last round. He said “I didn’t putt well today. It was disappointing. I could’ve finish way better if I had sunk a few more putts. I hit my tee shots and my second shots very good today but I wasn’t able to make putts, which was really a pity,”

“I will be happier if I can win the tournament but to finish tied-fourth for my best result in the Bangladesh Open, I’ll take it,” he added.

He can take his result, but country’s top golfer Siddikur continues to disappointing his home crowd. Hope so, he will be back in form very soon, because that’s the only thing we can do for now.
