Siddikur fails in Queen's

Sports Reporter

Bangladesh's ace golfer Siddikur Rahman disappointed once again on the final day of an Asian Tour event as he relinquished his lead to finish joint third in the Queen's Cup in Thailand yesterday.
The two-time Asian Tour winner, who had started the day at 11-under-par, one shot behind the leader and had grabbed the lead after nine holes, blew up his chances as he finished the round with a one-over-par 72. He was in the joint first position in a three-way tie going into the last hole, but carded a bogey, while eventual winner Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand carded a birdie to claim his 17th tour title.
Siddikur was disappointed as he let victory slip from his grasp and was kicking himself with the closing bogey.
"Everything was bad. It was very disappointing, especially on the 18th. I still had a chance to get a birdie but unfortunately I got a bogey. It made a big difference. The ball didn't want to go in. I had a chance but it didn't happen. It's okay, it's part of the game. Thaworn deserved it as he made some big putts. It was awesome putting by him," Siddikur told Asiantour.com.
