Song beats Spieth to Singapore Open title


South Korea’s Song Young-Han beat world number one Jordan Spieth to celebrated his maiden title at the weather-delayed Singapore Open.

The pair were part of a small group who had to finish their final rounds on Monday after thunderstorms halted play on Sunday.

American Spieth holed a birdie putt at the last to end his campaign on an 11 under total.

But that proved one shot too short.

Song headed into the final round five shots clear of the two-time major champion.

He resumed on Monday on a 12 under total and went on to par his remaining three holes to claim his first professional victory on any tour.

His previous best was two second-place finishes on the Japan Tour.
