Oliver Gan and Paqo Barro pulled off a thrilling victory in the 30th Bill Shaw Golf Classic, scoring a low gross 152 at the East and 145 at the West for a two-day aggregate 297 for the low gross title to beat the pair of Marvin Caparros and King Stehmeier by five at the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club.
Up by only three after a Caparros birdie on No. 15, Barro and Gan birdied on the next hole, with the former on a pitch in from 20 yards and the latter on a long, down hill putt from 20 feet to increase their lead to four.
