PGTI Release – 15 December 2018: Delhi’s Rashid Khan produced a determined final round of seven-under-63 at the Bombay Presidency Golf Club (BPGC) on Saturday to rediscover his form with a comfortable four-shot victory at the PGTI’s CG Open 2018. The 27-year-old Rashid, who closed the Rs. 1 crore event with an imposing total of 16-under-264, thus returned to winning ways after two years.
Rashid said, “I’m extremely glad to come through this week after a long winless streak. I needed a good start today and I managed that with some quality iron-play early on that helped me build a decent lead.“The bogey on the 10th was disappointing but I made up for that with a 25-feet birdie conversion on the 14th. At that point I knew that the match was in the bag.“I’ve tried a lot of things over the last two years as I struggled with my form. But now I’m visualizing my shots well and executing them to perfection. This week I landed most shots where I wanted to.“This win also helps me erase memories of the two previous playoff losses at the CG Open. It’s a relief to finally win at the BPGC.”
