Siddikur 4th in Indonesia

Siddikur Rahman produced another excellent performance to finish fourth in the Indonesian Open which concluded at the Pantai Indah Kapuk Course of Damai Indah Golf Club yesterday. The Two-time Asian Tour winner returned with a card of four-under-par (67) on the last day to finish with 12-under-par (272). However, it was not enough for Bangladesh's best golfer as overnight leader Gaganjeet Bhullar raced away with the title with an aggregate score of 16-under-par (268). Nicholas Fung of Malaysia and Chapchai Nirat of Thailand grabbed the joint second position at 13-under-par (271).
Siddikur gave himself an excellent chance of winning the title early on as he birdied the first four holes of the day to inch within one shot of leaders Bhullar and Jazz Janewattananond of Thailand. But the 29-year old failed to keep up the momentum and bogeyed the sixth and 15th holes to slip out of the race. Birdies on the 16th and 17th holes however ensured that Siddikur would finish the event on fourth position, with a paycheque of 37,500 dollars.
“I had a really great start today with four birdies in a row. My putting was very good and I was hitting the ball awesome today,” said Siddikur after the day's play. “I did think of winning after the four birdies. Unfortunately, I couldn't get my putting going after that but still managed to get birdies on the 16 and 17 to make amends for the two bogeys.”
The day though belonged to Bhullar who kept his cool and returned with a flawless three-under-par (68) to win his 135,000-dollar winner's cheque.
The victory propped Bhullar up to fourth position in the Asian Tour Order of Merit while Siddikur remains at number three.
