Golfer Siddikur determined to retain ‘Hero Indian Open title’
18 February 2015, Nirapad News: World Class Bangladeshi golfer Siddikur Rahman is determined to retain the title of Hero Indian Open. The tournament will start on Thursday at his favourite ground Delhi Golf Club, New Delhi, aiming to bounce back from a run of poor results.
The popular Bangladesh golfer uncharacteristically missed the cut in his last two events, True Thailand Classic and Maybank Malaysian Open, but hopes to rebuild his best form in the Hero Indian Open.
“I feel great because I’ve good memories on this course. I played one of my best golf in my career at the 2013 Hero Indian Open. This is my favourite golf course and I’m looking forward to this week,” Siddikur said on Wednesday.
The 30-year-old hopes to strike it hot with his irons which he reckons will be the key to success this week. With his coach Shane Gillespie and wife Samaun Anjum Auroni by his side, Siddikur is determined to retain the title.
“I feel at peace and happy here. I don’t feel any pressure even though I’m defending my title this week. When you do bad or good, it is part of golf. I learn a lot from my mistakes and that has helped me improve,” said Siddikur, a two-time Asian Tour winner.
