Moir 13th in Taipei

Richard Moir was the best of the Aussies after he finished 13th in the Taiwan Masters in Taipei on Sunday. Moir had a solid even-par final round to finish at one-over for the tournament some 12 strokes behind winner Lu Wen-Teh of Chinese Taipei. The 45-year-old three-time champion shot a final round of one-under-par 71 on the way to a winning total of 11-under-par 277 at the Taiwan Golf and Country Club. “The win has made me feel young again. It&aposs a great feeling,” said Lu. Thailand&aposs Thaworn Wiratchant was even-par for the day to finish in second place two strokes behind the winner while Lu&aposs compatriot Lin Wen-hong posted a 70 for a 282 total to claim third spot. It was a reasonable tournament for the Australian contingent with Gavin Flint, Mitchell Brown, Marcus Both and David Gleeson all finishing one stroke behind Moir in a tie for 14th. Neven Basic finished a further stroke back to cap off a good weekend for the Aussies.
