Siddikur back to business
After a lengthy break of two and a half months, Bangladesh's vaunted golfer Siddikur Rahman gets down to business again as he takes on a host of Asian and global stars at the Omega European Masters in Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club in Switzerland today.
Siddikur, who finished as the highest-ranked Asian in joint-18th place in this event last year, was out to ignite his title ambitions again.
The 27-year-old has been a figure of consistency all season and has yet to miss a single cut. He came close to lifting his second Tour title at the Queen's Cup in June and is hoping that his winning form will return this week.
“I've been playing well since the start of the season and I'm hoping that this will be my week,” Siddikur told Asiantour.com.
“Coming back to a place where you've achieved so much is always nice and I know that if I continue to stay patient, I'll be able to improve my result from last year,” added Siddikur.
Other notable Asian Tour stars expected to mount a strong challenge at the Omega European Masters include 13-time Asian
Tour winner Thaworn Wiratchant from Thailand, Korean-American rookie David Lipsky and India's Anirban Lahiri.
They will come up against a stellar world-class field that includes Major champions Darren Clarke of Northern Ireland and Australian Greg Norman at the 2.6 million dollar event.
