Siddikur jeopardises Open chances

Siddikur Rahman jeopardised his chances of a first qualification for The Open after relinquishing an excellent position in the second round of the CIMB Singapore Open yesterday.

Four players who finish inside the top-12 and ties, who are not already exempt, will earn places in the field at Carnoustie from July 19 to 22, 2018.

The two-time Asian Tour winner from Bangladesh was in contention for that slot as he had ended the first round at seventh position with a three-under-par (68). He was still going strong halfway through the second round after exchanging three birdies for a double bogey in the front nine at the Sentosa Golf Club yesterday. However, three bogeys in the last three holes meant he slipped to 42nd position on the leaderboard, ending the day with one-under-par (141).

Like the previous day, though, play was abandoned earlier than scheduled due to lightning threats and quite a few golfers were yet to finish their round.
