Siddikur Rahman was in danger of missing the cut for the second time this season, midway through the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship before inclement weather forced play to be abandoned yesterday. The Bangladeshi golfer started the day at one-over-par and thing got even worse as he fired two bogeys in the six holes he played to stand at 3-over-par before rain stopped play at the Linkou International Golf and Country Club in Taipei.
Siddikur will return early with the other golfers this morning and will have to go at least 2-under-par in the remaining g twelve holes in the second round to have any chance of making the cut. If he can't make it, it will be his second failure of the season after missing the cut in the Omega Masters in Switzerland earlier this month. He might be praying for the rains to clear out as he has shown a particular vulnerability with getting hold of his game in chilly and windy conditions.
Meanwhile, Philippines' Angelo Que held the clubhouse lead with his first round seven-under-par 65. The three-time Asian Tour winner could not tee off as he was party of the group which was scheduled for an afternoon start. American Jason Knutzon was even-par through nine holes and he took a share of second place alongside India's Gangajeet Bhullar.
