Siddikur tees off in Queen's Cup today

Bangladesh's ace golfer Siddikur Rahman is looking to take his good form from last month's Mauritius Open into the Queen's Cup which begins today in Thailand. The 31-year-old golfer finished second in the tri-sanctioned event despite holding a three-shot lead up to 15th hole on the final day of the Mauritius Open. However, he is trying to forget that setback and consolidate on his good form at the Santaburi Samui Country Club.

Siddikur has fond memories of this golf course. “I always like to come back to Samui. I had my first top-10 here and then I went on to win in Brunei. I have good memories about this place and I'm looking forward to the week ahead,” the two-time Asian Tour winner told the “I like this kind of golf course, it's tight and narrow. It's also windy out there and it suits my game. I believe that's the reason why I always play well here.”

The 300,000-dollar event will also feature the likes of two-time champion Prayad Marksaeng, Thai veteran Thaworn Wiratchant, rising Korean star Jeunghun Wang, Australian veteran Scott Hend and India's SSP Chawrasia.

After completing this event, Siddikur is likely to take part in the ISPS Handa Global Cup in Japan next week before flying to Chinese Taipei for the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship.
