Siddikur to play PGA tournament

Siddikur Rahman is all set to battle against contemporary golfing greats Ernie Els and Retief Goosen in the PGA-sanctioned CIMB Asia Pacific Classic in Kuala Lumpur from October 28.
The country's first professional golfer reached this new high after earning a place in the Asian Tour Order of Merit. Siddikur is currently number nine in that list, confirming him a place in the tournament to be held at the Mines Resort and Golf Club in the Malaysian capital.
The top 25 available players from the PGA tour's final FedExCup standing have qualified for the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic. The top 10 players from the current Asian Tour Order of Merit and five players under sponsor exemptions will join them to complete one of the strongest playing fields in Asia's golf tournament circuit.
The total prize money is six million dollars and the winner will get $1 million.
Meanwhile, Siddikur's sponsor Grameenphone congratulated him and wished success in this prestigious tournament.
