Strong start but forgettable ending for Shiv Kapur
The Indian started off the tournament on a high and looked destined to have a strong finish. The final day saw him finish with a round of two-over 72. This performance saw him finish with a total of five-under 275.
It was only good enough to get him the 41st position. Shiv looked impressive before the final day as he was tied for 14th overnight. He had one birdie and three bogeys. The birdie came in the fifth when the bogeys came on third, 15th and 18th.
“The conditions were not easy out there with the wind. Par would have been a good score. I thought I could get a birdie on 16th and maybe get out with a par and a decent finish, but bogeys on 15th and 18th didn’t allow that,” Shiv Kapur said.
He made his future intentions clear as well and has his eyes set on the Omega European Masters.
“Now after about 11 weeks on the road since the BMW PGA, I am headed home and will be back for Omega European Masters sanctioned by European and Asian Tours. But I am looking forward to a small break,” Kapur added.
Had Shiv Kapur finished in the top 25 at this tournament, he would have qualified for the British Open but unfortunately he ended up short.
However if there is any consolation, Shiv finished as the highest Indian ranked players as Anirban Lahiri and Jeev Milkha Singh missed the cut.
