Bangladesh's Siddikur Rahman in action Asian Tour

The 33-year old Bangladeshi is hopeful of turning his season around with a strong showing on his favourite hunting ground, where he holds an impeccable track record

Bangladesh golfer Siddikur Rahman expressed delight after a solid six-under-par 66 at the halfway stage of the $400,000 Panasonic Open India Friday.

After opening his campaign with a flawless 67, Siddikur fired eight birdies against two bogeys to match the efforts of overnight leader Suradit Yongcharoenchai, who returned with a bogey-free 67, on 11-under-par 133 total at the venerable Delhi Golf Club.

“I had another excellent day with eight birdies and two bogeys. Overall, it was still a wonderful round. I am happy because I played exactly the way I wanted to play,” Siddikur was quoted as saying on the Asian Tour website. 

“After dropping two bogeys in a row, I told myself it happens, especially on this golf course, and I still have many holes to go. I had like three eagle chances [Friday]. I hit the green in two on all three par-fives.

“On the 14th hole, I had like seven feet for eagle but I missed that and settled for birdie. On the first hole, I had about a 20-footer for eagle and then another 12-footer on the eighth. I didn’t hole any of these eagle putts but it was alright.”

The 33-year old Bangladeshi is hopeful of turning his season around with a strong showing on his favourite hunting ground, where he holds an impeccable track record.

“I am really enjoying the course so far. I am very comfortable with my driver and three-wood. Nothing really different compared to [Thursday]. I stuck to my game plan and kept the same strategy,” he explained.

“I was a little unlucky on the third. I hit a good shot but it went into the bush. It was a good bogey actually. I chipped in from about 20 feet on the fringe with my putter.

“I wasn’t thinking about catching anyone. I just want to play my own game and hopefully I can continue to play the way that I have been playing.”
