The rise of Shubhankar Sharma has been meteoric
The top-notch Indian Golfer completed a great week, laced with 18 birdies, with a Tied-14th finish at the Dutch Open on the DP World Tour. Sharma had as many as 18 birdies over four days. But the Indian also gave away 13 bogeys.
The finish would nevertheless give Sharma a big boost, considering he missed four cuts in five previous starts. After three birdies in his opening 71, Sharma had six birdies in a second round 71 and six more in his third round 69.
The final round saw two birdies on front nine but he gave away three bogeys in his first six holes on back nine before closing with a birdie on 18th for the third time in four days.
The Indian Golfer has a choc-o-bloc calender ahead and he has quite a few golden oppurtunties to hone his birdie-making skills even as he works on reducing the bogeys to improve on his 17th place on the Race to Dubai rankings.
The other two Indians, Gaganjeet Bhullar (73-74) and SSP Chawrasia (74-77) had missed the cut.
Meanwhile, the Dundee-based Frenchman Victor Perez, 29, was exceptional in clutch putting and held off Kiwi Ryan Fox in a play-off to win his second DP World Tour title.
