Bengaluru: Playing in the Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI) Bengaluru Open golf Championships (2018) at the Karnataka Golf Association golf course on Sunday, Patna's professional Aman Raj took the second place after being bested by Sri Lankan Anura Rohana by a margin of three strokes.

Playing in the tournament sponsored by Brittania, GoAir, and Principal Partner Karnataka Tourism, Aman shot a brilliant 16-under (68-67-71-66) at 272 but his efforts, including a bogey-free 66 in the final round, came short against 45-year-old Rohana whose victory in Bengaluru was the second one along with a total of six wins in the professional circuit.
