Sharma seals top-10 end with late birdies

Forso (Denmark), May 31

Indian golfer Shubhankar Sharma registered his first top-10 finish on the European Tour in 18 months with his tied-8th finish at the Made in HimmerLand event here.

Sharma, a two-time winner on the European Tour, closed his final round with birdie-birdie to shoot a 4-under 68. He finished at 11-under, eight shots behind the winner.

His last top-10 finish on the European Tour was in November 2019 — a T-7 at the Turkish Airlines Open.

With 10 places up for grabs for the US Open in June, Sharma needs to finish in the top-10 of a mini-series list to get one of the slots. A top-5 at the European Open could get him that and also propel him into contention for an Olympics berth.
