Hattrick beckons Europe
It will be a battle between Europe and the Rest of the World when the two-day Rover Cup, Bangladesh's annual equivalent of the Ryder Cup, kicks off at the Kurmitola Golf Club today.
Steve Wilson, head of Chevron Bangladesh, will captain the European team that will be on the verge of completing a hattrick against the Rest of the World that will be led by Prem Chand, chief executive officer of Nokia Bangladesh.
The opening day will feature team matches of Greensomes and Foursomes while the singles will be held on Saturday.
Wilson, however, was looking forward to completing a treble with his strong middle-order.
“The Rest of the World team clearly have some of the lower handicappers, but Europe has a solid middle order, and morale is high in the camp”, said Wilson.
"However, win, lose or draw, it's the taking part that is important, along with the spirit of the game and the caliber of the people. I'm sure that this year, like previous tournaments, will be a cracker. We've just all got to hope that the weather doesn't conspire against us,” concluded a witty Wilson.
Dhaka Oddball Golf Society holds the tournament every year.
