Que wins inaugural Vietnam Masters

11/7/2004

HANOI, Vietnam -- Former U.S. Open champion Corey Pavin finished third Sunday in the inaugural Vietnam Masters, which was won by Angelo Que of the Philippines.

Que shot a 2-under-par 70 for a two-stroke victory. He had a
four round total of 12-under 276 in the Asian Tour event. He pulled
ahead of third-round leader Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand, who was
runner-up after a 74.

Pavin, who closed with a 70, birdied the third, fifth and
seventh holes but was slowed by a bogey on the 13th. He will now
tour the country for a week with his Vietnamese wife, Lisa.

"I just didn't keep it going and it was frustrating, but I
tried my hardest out there," said Pavin, who won the U.S. Open in
1995. "I'm now looking forward to seeing the rest of Vietnam."
