Siddikur seals EurAsia spot

Finishes 26th in King's Cup

Sports Reporter

Siddikur Rahman finished joint 26th in the King's Cup in Thailand yesterday and ended in fourth position on the 2013 Asian Tour Order of Merit to confirm his place in the EurAsia Cup, which will be held at the Glenmarie Golf & Country Club in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from March 27-29.
The two-time Asian Tour winner carded a one-over-par (73) in the last round, with three birdies, two bogeys and a double-bogey, to take his aggregate tally to even-par (288).  
The title was claimed by local lad Prayad Marksaeng as he posted a six-under-par (66) for a total of 12-under-par (276).
Siddikur's 26th place finish in the last event of the 2013 season meant he finished in fourth place in the Order of Merit with earnings of 491,046 dollars. The leading available four Asian players from the final Order of Merit will earn automatic places in the EurAsia Cup.
Since the second-placed Scott Hend is an Australian, Siddikur will be counted as number three and make the four available spots along with     Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand and Indian duo of Anirban Lahiri and Gaganjeet Bhullar.
Three more spots will be filled from the official World Golf Ranking while there will also be three captains' picks to complete the Team Asia. The EurAsia Cup will be played over three days with five Fourball, five Foursomes and 10 Singles matches.
