Former Hong Kong golfer Scott Rowe blew a chance to notch his first pro tournament win when he shot a two-over-par final round of 74 in the Classic Indian Open in Calcutta yesterday. Birdies at the first two holes brought Rowe within one shot of third-round leader and eventual winner Firoz Ali of India, but that was as good as it got for the Canadian-born Omega Asian PGA Tour rookie. He failed to keep up the pressure, making a double bogey at the seventh and finishing up in sixth place. Rowe, who only turned professional last July after graduating from Northwestern University in the US, had a distinguished amateur career in Hong Kong before launching his career on the Asian professional circuit. He represented Hong Kong in both the Putra and Nomura Cups, as well as bagging six college golf titles in America. Firoz fired a composed two-under-par 70 in his final round to win by a comfortable margin of five shots from America's Dean Wilson. Ali carded four birdies and two bogeys for a 14-under-par winning total, while Wilson could only return a level-par 72. 'I was very nervous at the start of the day,' said champion Ali after being carried shoulder high from the 18th green. 'When Scott [Rowe] made birdies on the first two holes, I really started to feel the pressure. But when I made a birdie on the 14th to go four up, I knew I was going to win.'
