Siddikur strikes it hot in Hamburg

Bangladesh's ace golfer Siddikur Rahman swung his way to second position in the Porsche European Open in Hamburg, Germany on Friday.

The two-time Asian Tour winner, who is participating in the 2-million-euro event courtesy of a finish within the top twenty of last year's Asian Tour Order of Merit, moved 31 places up from the first round.

The 32-year-old golfer had started the event with a two-under-par (70) on Thursday and was in 33rd position, having exchanged five birdies for three bogeys. However, the ace golfer turned on his A Game yesterday as he hit eight birdies against two bogeys on a rain-affected day at the Green Eagle Golf Courses.

With an aggregate score of eight-under-par (136), Siddikur was trailing the leader, England's Stephen Chesters, by a single shot.

Mentionable here is that the ace Bangladeshi golfer had finished second in the Mauritius Open – a tri-sanctioned event – last year, despite leading by three shots till the 16th hole on the fourth and final day. That second-place finish, however, earned him a few invitations from the European Tour, regarded as the second best tour in the world after the US PGA Tour.
