Siddikur’s fabulous finish in Hamburg
Bangladesh's premier golfer Siddikur Rahman made a fabulous finish to the Porsche European Open with a four-under-par in the final round, raising hopes of a top-three finish.
The two-time Asian Tour winner, who narrowly missed out on a maiden European Tour win in Mauritius last year, settled for an aggregate of 11-under-par (,,), with an unblemished round at the Green Eagle Golf Course where he carded four birdies on Sunday.
Defending champion Alexander Levy of France and overnight leader Jordan Smith of England were at 12-under-par, with three holes remaining for each of them.
Siddikur had racked up scores of 70, 66 and 73 in the previous three rounds of the two-million-euro event, sanctioned solely by the European Tour.
A top-three finish at this prestigious event will give a big boost to the career of the Bangladesh golfer, who has been struggling with a recurring back pain and a slight lack of form of late. This will also hand him a hefty paycheque while lifting his world rankings, which is 394 at the moment.
