European Tour
Posted by Admin 07 Feb 2018

Golf in India has been on the rise and Gaganjeet Bhullar has played a major role in pushing the growth trajectory on a much higher curve. Now, the 29-year-old Golfer is once again in the spotlight as he’ll be leading the Asian Tour charge down under at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth tournament that kicks off from tomorrow.

A young brigade of the young Asian Tour champions will be heading to the A$1.75 million (approx. US$1.25 million) ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth that starts at the Lake Karrinyup Country Club in Perth, Australia next week.



The 29-year-old Golfer has been making a lot of waves at the international Golf circuit and he is the youngest-ever golfer to win eight Asian Tour titles and is widely expected to do well against a strong field that features 2016 Masters Tournament champion Danny Willett and former world number one, Lee Westwood of England.



“The golf course and the tournament were my favourites on the Asian Tour last year. I missed going into the fourth round match-play by a shot, but on the whole, I had a great time in Australia,” said Bhullar.

The Indian has enjoyed a decent start to 2018, finishing tied-27th and tied-10th in Singapore and Myanmar respectively. His emergence as a stupendous Golfer proves that Golf in India is growing by leaps and bounds.


He is looking forward to playing in the novel format that combines 54 holes of traditional stroke play across the first three days, with an exciting six-hole knockout match play format for the fourth and final round.


“When it comes to preparing for the format, there’s nothing I would do differently. The target, as usual, is to hit more fairways, more greens and make more putts. I like the course layout at Lake Karrinyup (Country Club) and I’m riding high on confidence,” said Bhullar.


Joining Bhullar in the 156-man field is an exciting group of recent Tour winners in their 20s. They include Jazz Janewattananond, Poom Saksansin, Rattanon Wannasrichan and Pavit Tangkamolprasert from Thailand, Paul Peterson of the United States, Nicholas Fung of Malaysia, Todd Sinnott of Australia, Daisuke Kataoka of Japan as well as Ajeetesh Sandhu of India.


Other established players to look out for include Shiv Kapur of India, who won three times on the Asian Tour in 2017 and veteran golfer Prayad Marksaeng of Thailand, a 10-time winner on Tour.
