MANILA, Philippines—Juvic Pagunsan had a disappointing end to his first Summer Games, finishing 55th in the 60-man field in the men’s individual golf competition of the Tokyo Olympics at Kasumigaseki Country Club Sunday.

The 43-year-old Japan Tour veteran had a stellar start finishing fifth in round 1 but had a disastrous slide after the opener.

Pagunsan, who finished one-over-par overall, fired a 70 in round 4 in which he had a lackluster back nine going par in holes 10 through 17 before bogeying the 18th.

He had a relatively strong start to round 4 hitting three birdies and bogeying just once in the front nine but he once again lost his stroke near the end.
