CBSSports.com wire reports

JAKARTA, Indonesia -- Bernd Wiesberger shot a 5-under 67 in the final round Sunday to win the Indonesian Masters by one stroke over British Open champion Ernie Els.

The 27-year-old Austrian finished with an overall 15-under 273, with South African Els in second place after a 4-under 68 for 274 at the Asian Tour event.

"I've been in good form, heading into the tournament," Wiesberger said.

Wiesberger opened with a birdie but bogeyed the 4th hole before shooting two more birdies on Nos. 8 and 9.

Both Wiesberger and Els had an eagle on the 12th.

"This has given me something and it shows my game is going in the right direction," Els said.

Japan's Daisuke Kataoka (70) was third with a 13-under 275 at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club, three strokes ahead of fourth-place Thongchai Jaidee (69), a three-time Asian Tour Order of Merit winner.
