GREATER NOIDA, India (AP) -- Thomas Aiken of South Africa clinched the second European Tour title of his career on Sunday, winning the Avantha Masters after shooting a 5-under 67 to finish at 23-under 265.

Aiken led overnight and had three birdies on the front nine and two more on his way back to maintain a three-shot lead over the chasing pack.

India's Gaganjeet Bhullar rallied for a 64 that included three birdies on his last five holes to finish second after starting the final round six strokes behind Aiken.

Liang Wenchong of China shot a 69 to finish third on 270, the highlight of his final day's card coming with an ace on the par-3 No. 7.
