Pune: City youngster Ninad Muley played percentage golf sinking three birdies--two on the front nine and one during his home stretch to tally 37 stableford points to score a narrow one-point win over Gauri Karhade in winning Atur Foundation golf tournament at the Poona Club golf course here over the last weekend.

Two-handicapper Ninad opened with a par before two bogeys early on interspersed with a par on Hole No 3 pulled him down. Ninad, however, recovered himself towards the end of outward stretch by firing back-to-back birdies — on the Hole No 7 and No 8 to close at par 35.
