Peter Karmis of South Africa completed a remarkable victory to claim his first Asian Tour title at the Handa Singapore Classic yesterday. Karmis posted a one-under-par 71 for a four-day total of 21-under-par 267 to defeat compatriot Jbe Kruger by two strokes at the Orchid Country Club. Kruger was tied for the lead after 10 holes but fell behind after two costly bogeys. 'Jbe is a great player and he is such a fighter and never gives up. I'm glad I came out on top,' Karmis said. Thailand's Pariya Junhasavasdikul (68) signed off with a 270 total to finish in third place.
