MANILA, Philippines — Miguel Tabuena made up for his third-round slowdown with a closing bogey-free 66, finishing solo fifth in the Sarawak Championship won by Aussie Andrew Dodt in sudden death over Canada’s Richard Lee in Malaysia yesterday.

Tabuena strung up a pair of 33s in another low-scoring day at the Damai Golf and Country Club but failed to threaten for the crown as Dodt put up a sizzling charge of 64 to rally from joint fifth and tie Lee, who carded a 70, at 264.

The former Philippine Open champion put himself into contention with back-to-back 65s but fell behind with a third round 71. He ended up fifth at 267, three strokes behind Dodt and Lee.

Dodt hit all fairways and all but one green then claimed the top $54,000 purse by edging Lee on the first playoff hole.
